Joy Sticks Reviews
My suggestion if you are a 80s comedy junkie like I am, run though all the rest of the top rated movies like I mentioned about and start heading to the bottom of the barrel, watch this at the very end of the list because I can promise you there are a lot better 80s comedies out there.
Take care and keep these movies alive. :-)
stars Joe Don Baker, Leif Green, Scott McGinnis, Jon Gries, Corinne Bohrer, John Diehl, John Voldstad, Logan Ramsey, Morgan Lofting, Kym Malin, Kim G. Michel, Jacqueline Cole, Reid Cruickshanks, Jim Greenleaf, Dona Speir and Hugo L. Stanger.
directed by Greydon Clark.
Well worth a rental.
Typical plot that some politician-type is trying to shut down the "den of evil" while the local arcade owner defends the wholesomeness of his establishment. (Ironic that this arcade is WAY raunchier than anyone I'd been to in real life).
I'm a gamer, and it always bothers me that they don't even try to match sound-effects with the proper game. Another pet peeve is showing people playing games who OBVIOUSLY aren't playing because nobody actually plays with such vigor. Finally you have people playing games like Super Pac-Man while hitting all kinds of buttons, when everyone KNOWS that it's a joystick-only game.
Were video games ever really this cool? Is the fat farting dude really somebody the men AND women look up to with respect? Were hot chicks EVER attracted to the video arcade? I think this movie is messing with history.... ;-)
