The latest Wreck-It Ralph (where he breaks the Internet) is absolutely brilliant, and, in the best tradition of family movies, is full of cultural allusions and grown-up jokes ("what about you Ralph, do you feel Dostoyevsky intended to make his narrator unreliable?"). It’s barely believable how cruelly Disney is making fun of itself. But the next-level meta joke was in between the closing credits: "Hey Mo, did you like the movie? – Well, there was a scene in the trailer that wasn’t in the movie, and that makes me sad. — Oh, that’s too bad. Maybe playing a game will cheer you up. — Okay." And that’s where the omitted scene happens. Beautiful! Just beautiful. Because of course I, as that little kid in between the credits, was thinking about how they didn’t include that scene.
