I know what you were trying to do and you can just forget it. There is no way. I am not kissing a boy.

Well, not really. My life story doesn't resemble that of the characters in any way except for our collective love of video games. That said:
I watched this movie so many damn times as a kid it'll make your head spin. What can I say about this movie that you don't already know yourself? Fred Savage. Beau Bridges. Christian Slater. The chick from Rilo Kiley. Spanky.
And then Jimmy brings it all home.
First of all, I want to say that whatever pills the video game contest host was on, I want me some of that. Two, they should bring back the Powerglove. And three, road trip movies will never, ever die.
From Double Dragon to Ninja Gaiden or the nostalgic dinosaur park in the middle of no where, this movie will always remain a classic for me.
"Gimme, gimme, gimme...Jimmy...Woods!!!"
