An eccentric toymaker's last wish is that his brother takes over the running of the business. The brother is a military General, and is out of touch with toymaking, and out of touch with reality too. The business should really have been given to Leslie, who was much more like his toymaking father. When the General starts making weapons instead of toys, Leslie decides to take action. Written by
When General Zevo is in the arcade playing "Tank Gunner" you notice that his score bounces. It's at -2400 at the point where he only shoots UN Trucks (each truck is -1000 points) and in the next seen he's at 1600 points, down to 400, then up to 3600, then down to -6000, then -3400, and finally -7000.

I so wanted to like this film. Following the death of a Robin Williams I was rewatching his films and decided to watch some that I'd previously missed hence my son and I settled down to watch Toys. The film is terrible - it's Willie Wonka on drugs. The story is terrible, the acting is terrible. They use an English actor (Michael Gambon) to play the part of a US general and then create a reason as to why he is incapable of speaking with an American accent - just get an American actor instead. Jamie Foxx is in the film but I bet it's not on his CV! LL Cool J also appears - the pinnacle of his career no doubt. Robin Williams was a fantastic actor but during his life he made some bad choices when it came to the movies he appeared in - this must surely be one of them.
