Candy Land crossed with Shrek crossed with video games

If you like video games and you like satire, you'll like this movie. I loved the video game in-jokes, like the Pac-Man ghost turning white when he was scared, or the graffiti in Game Central Station that says "All your base are belong to us." I also really loved the Mario Kart inspired world that is Sugar Rush. It's like Candyland, but for older kids. Some of the emotional scenes were a little saccharine (pun-intended) for my tastes, but overall it was a good movie for adults and kids alike. Although what was with King Candy at the end? I think I'm gonna have nightmares about him for a while.
