Okay, I’m biased, but the movie Phil has worked on for over 3 years is officially out this weekend. Wreck-It Ralph hits theaters Friday afternoon. Phil’s credits include Story By and Screenplay By.
When I saw the movie a few weeks ago, I was truly blown away by the complexity of the story and the worlds that he created. There are Wreck-It-Ralph posters all over this city. Every time we pass one, Fia yells, “Look Mama! It’s Wreck-it-Ralph! Daddy’s movie!” I love that she will always have this as something her Dad did, starting when she was in my belly.
Fingers and toes are crossed for a stellar box office weekend. I’m thinking for all those going stir-crazy in your homes back east, this is a perfect break from it all! So if you have nothing else to do…grab your kids, your friends, your spouse, and go! It’s a four-quadrant movie, which means it appeals to all audiences. And in case you’re wondering, the reviews are stellar. A.O. Scott of the NY Times gave it 5 out of 5. Magnificent!
And just in case you needed a garbage can on the beach in Santa Monica…we have one for you!
Or, if you need entertained on the NYC Subway (pre-flood/Hurricane)…
My cousins at Disney World last week… yes, there are Wreck it Ralph bags! And all sorts of other
crap things. Come on! It’s Disney! What did you expect?
Should you ever want to pixelate your face….

Me and my bestie, Pamela Thomas. Her girls are Elliott and Emerson (pictured above this one). They flew out for the premiere from Brooklyn. They lost their dad to pancreatic cancer two years ago. Phil is their “Movie Dad.”
