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 »
The dubious honors given this film are entirely justified. This is, without question, among the most moronic comedies ever made. Quite interesting as a time capsule of the early 1980s, however, and a real gas for anyone who was a youngster at that time. The plot concerns a popular video arcade in danger of being closed down by nogoodnik Joe Don Baker. Who cares about that, though...
...you rented this to see boobs.
Singular boobs. Pairs of boobs. Sets, groups, and crowds of boobs. Yes...JOYSTICKS is a veritable Wall of Boob, and while you're busy boobing it up, you can also enjoy the most sophomoric humor ever be offered up in a teen sex comedy. As an extra bonus, there's a gang of comically over-the-top "punkers", the likes of which were commonplace as guest villains on T.V. crime shows throughout the 80s(tri-color frightwigs, bondage gear, lots of chains...yeah, you remember...)
Shamefully fun trash, if you don't mind hitting the kill-switch on your brain for 90 minutes. Wakka Wakka Wakka.
