PG-13 | | Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi
When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.
The movie's video game high scores are based on real scores. Sam Brenner's Pac-Man high score of 3,333,360 is the highest attainable Pac-Man score, first achieved by Billy Mitchell (a higher score is possible on the Namco Pac-Man Anniversary edition machines). Ludlow Lamonsoff's Centipede score of 16,389,548 is one point higher than the real-life marathon world record set by Jim Schneider. Eddie Plant's Donkey Kong score of 1,068,100 is one hundred points higher than Hank Chien's former world record.
Let's hit it!
Sam Brenner: Pac-Man's faster than I remember.
Eddie Plant: Pac-Man's always been faster than the ghost. We're gonna have to outmaneuver.
Ludlow Lamonsoff: We got him! He's got nowhere to go!
Sam Brenner: Oh, god, no!
When Brenner arrives to do the AV install, one of the items he is told he will be installing is an 85 inch big screen TV, however when we see the TV it is no larger than a 50 inch.
The closing credits re-run a synopsis of the movie in 8-bit style.
