Ralph Breaks the Internet SEX/NUDITY 1

 A man talks to a husband and his wife about “wanting to spice things up.” A character wears a T-shirt that reads, “Hot Mama.”
 A man talks about a princess dress not being made for him and when he twists it tears revealing his bare back and abdomen and complains, “It’s going right up the back alley.” A girl wonders if a man “waxes” and she and another man discuss how smooth he is (we see the man in question wearing a Speedo-type brief as his costume and his bare chest, back, abdomen and legs to the hips are seen). Women wear tight-fitting, form-fitting outfits that reveal the outlines of their breasts and buttocks in several scenes. A man wears a karate uniform that is open to the upper abdomen (we see his bare chest and upper abdomen). A woman wears a short top that reveals part of her bare abdomen.

Ralph Breaks the Internet VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 - A game is called "Slaughter Race" and we are told that it is dangerous: we see cars crash together and burn up in flames, a truck slams into a car and we see smoke billow, a dog barks fiercely until a shark pops out of a manhole and eats the dog, two characters are destroyed by another character when he sprays a flamethrower at them (off-screen), and a character in a game threatens others that they are "gonna get cut." A girl speeds out of a garage in a car and others chase her; one character car-jacks a car, they speed along streets, through a drain, a car flips onto the road trying to cut off the first car and the driver evades it as her passenger says, "I'm gonna lose my cookies," they jump across train tracks in front of a train and through flaming wreckage. A man's hair catches fire when he takes a charred and smoldering pie out of the oven (he yells and is shown fine later). A girl is chased by Storm Troopers. A girl is threatened by several princesses that hold swords, knives, a spear and a broken glass slipper. A creepy clown riding a tricycle appears and makes reference to "creepy clown dreams." Two characters walk through "the dark web" and we see a giant mechanical spider walk across the background. A large creature (it looks like a big slug with a face) has a small head in its chest and it is identified as the larger creature's brother; the creature slithers across the floor and is surrounded by containers with liquid and unusual looking creatures in them. A creature that looks like a centipede with a giant red eye slithers through games and plants a virus that causes games to glitch and their scenes to crumble; we see characters trying to get out of the game before it crashes and reboots and a girl crashes her car and is trapped under rubble (she is pulled to safety). A character is cloned by a virus and the clones chase a girl through the Internet, the clones continue to multiply and eventually create one giant clone that grabs a girl in its hand (like Kong Kong), the man beats the creature with a huge push pin, it grabs the man and squeezes him until the girl tells it to stop, the creature breaks apart and drops the man who falls, crashes through a car, then lands on an ice slide, and is caught by a princess dress hanging from a cable, carried by dress parachutes and placed safely in a bed.
 A man and a girl get zapped when they stand under a device as it is connecting to the Internet, they are then wrapped in bubbles and sent through cables to the main Internet hub. Someone throws something that hits a man in the face bending his glasses and knocking him to the ground (no injuries are shown). A man sneaks up on a girl and yells causing her to jump and yell at him for scaring her. A man becomes frustrated and punches a hologram, and then throws the frame around it and we see it land on a woman (she disappears under it). A man punches a man and he falls to the floor. A man stomps on a bug on the floor and it sparks and breaks apart. A gamer becomes angry, yells and throws his controller at a TV screen (it does not break).
 We see dumpsters in flames, live electric wires flipping around in the streets, smoke in the air and the silhouette of two people fighting behind a store window in a game. Cars speed through a racing game as gumballs drop on the track and the cars swerve to avoid them; one car follows a different track, speeds along rubble covered roads and ends up crashing into a pool of melted chocolate (no injuries).
 Characters in a game panic when a man goes to unplug it and they scramble to get out of the game before he does; after the man unplugs the game we hear a few say, "We're homeless" as they cry. A man and a girl argue in a few scenes and once bitterly with the girl storming away and telling the man to leave her alone. A man and a girl talk about an arcade game having a virus and they get stuck in the game briefly when it glitches. A girl talks about being "just 1s and 0s" and wanting more out of life. A girl says, "I'd kill for even just a new track." A girl tells another girl that she's going to kick her butt in a race. Many people approach a man and try to entice him to click on their buttons (referred to as clickbait, about getting rid of belly fat, mention of sassy housewives, celebrities, etc.). A girl glitches and flashes in pixels when she is nervous or upset. A boy yells at his grandmother for telling him not to play a game. A character's name is "Shank." Princesses list their plights, including being kidnapped and tortured, held prisoner, poisoned, having "daddy issues," etc., and complain about always having to be saved by a "big strong man." A character says, "The Internet can bring out the worst in people," when another character reads mean comments. A character talks about driving through a "fog of mace." A reference is made to "a kick in the face," and "a donkey kick to the teeth."
 A girl playing an arcade game is unable to control her character and she ends up breaking the steering wheel off the game. A character pounds the ground in a game to make a track trough rubble covered roads and pools of melted chocolate. A character is sprayed in the face with a blower that causes his face to stretch out unnaturally.
 A game character looks like a demon with red flesh and large black horns. A man and a girl burp loudly and the girl recoils and says "Eww" from the smell. A man wipes goo out of his nose after crying.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
