Storyline

"Extended Play" chronicles the misadventures of a teenage youth out for a summer afternoon of leisure fun, in a large suburban shopping mall. Failing numerous attempts to make points with the fairer sex, the young man directs his attention to the nearby amusement arcade where vicarious, but more accessible, thrills abound. Electric sounds of mock battles intermingled with laughter emanate from the mysterious depths. Like a moth attracted to a candle flame, our hero is irresistably drawn inside... and there, the adventure begins. Written by John Nystrom

Wham A Lama Ding Dang Whoa Daddy!
12 October 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

What a kickaxe short movie! I saw this a couple times on a local San Jose, CA video show called "Breakin' Out" in the 80's hosted by some weird short dude with a mustache and a guy who called himself "Chaka" and kinda dressed like Mr. T. In between videos they would show this movie. Man, what a funny flick! It basically is a day in the life of a nerdy guy who gets some ice cream, puts some moves on some chicks, and goes to a local arcade (an arcade I went to a lot as a kid, now it's gone) and plays the most off the wall video game ya ever seen! This movie is a great slice of 1980's nostalgia and captured the excitement of the early 80's video game craze. Ah, memories. Long live the 80's, baby!
