Let's hit it!
[a chase begins in their cars as ghosts as Pac-Man moves around the city]
Pac-Man's faster than I remember.
Pac-Man's always been faster than the ghost. We're gonna have to outmaneuver.

Easily one of Adam Sandler's best films in recent years
From the mid-90's to early 2000's, Adam Sandler was a much praised comedian with making hit comedies like Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, and 50 First Dates, but now he is liked by audiences and hated by critics for making negatively reviewed films under his Happy Madison production company like this film, Blended, Grown Ups, and most infamously Jack and Jill. Recently he has only one praised performance and that is as Dracula in Sony Pictures Animation's 2012 animated comedy, Hotel Transylvania. Now Sandler and Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) team up to make Pixels, a new action comedy where aliens send real life video games like Pac-Man, Centipede, Donkey Kong, and many more. Now, President Will Cooper (played by Kevin James of Paul Blart: Mall Cop), assembles a team of arcade champions to fight off the games the aliens are projecting down. The team consists of Sam Brenner (played by Sandler), Ludlow Lamonsoff (played by Josh Gad of Frozen), and Eddie Plant (played by Peter Dinklage of Elf) to stop the aliens before its game over. Pixels is a great film with an engaging story, great visuals, funny humor, and classic nostalgia galore!
