As intelligent as a garden slug.
This movie was written by the same mastermind responsible for such classics as "Body Chemistry 4", "The Skateboard Kid 2" and "Poison Ivy: The New Seduction". As you can imagine, this one stinks to high heaven.
Ian Ziering is Darrin, a sought after hot shot in the field of computer games. The company CTC throws a bunch of money at him and he and his wife Deb (Katherine Kelly Lang) move to the Las Vegas area so that he can go to work on a new game CTC is developing.
There's a twist to the story and it's beyond belief. CTC is releasing millions of copies of a game called Amazing Mouse Race for free. Why? Because it contains a subliminal message telling everyone to buy their next game, Radical Rat Trap, no matter how much it costs. Evidently, they think that even in this modern age of technology nobody would ever notice the messages. They also must've thought that nobody in the world would think it was odd if millions of people started acting like zombies in front of their computers and then went out and spent hundreds of dollars on a new computer game. DUH!
There are so many holes in this story that I couldn't even possibly take the time out of my life to go into them all. The acting is as over the top as the plot. Poor Ian Ziering...his one shot at becoming a movie star and it had to be a piece of dreck like this. 2/10
