There's trouble in town and it's video games. High school students spend so much time with the electronic monsters that there's no time for schoolwork. Shucks. Written by

All the video games were rented from a local wholesaler. See more »
When the two main characters are playing Pac-Man (with the cool, giant floor-mounted joysticks) they are repeatedly shown mashing buttons. There's no buttons in Pac-Man, as the only thing you are doing is controlling movement. The same is true later when they are playing Super Pac-Man. Super-Pac-Man has one button ("Super Speed") which must be held down continuously. It would do them no good to keep mashing the button. See more »
Of all the juvenile attempts at a movie this has to be the worst. they tried so hard to be porky's with video games that it was funny--makes an excellent gag gift for the guy who loves video games though--they will sit through the entire thing just to get glimpses of classic games. If arcades were really like this in 1983, its no wonder the bottom fell out of the industry... The scene with the punks acting out a pacman game had me cringing in embarrassment for the actors. If it wasn't for Joe Don Baker and his illustrious career of movies (as witnessed on MST3k) this movie would be a total loss. But by all means find a copy of this movie somewhere and subject yourself to the torture--you know you've done something wrong and deserved to be punished at some point--now is the time to make ammends!
