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 »
Okay, so Joysticks is poorly made. But I for one find it rather nostalgic. This movie has something about it. Whether it's the fact that it takes place in the summer (which gives it a relaxed feeling) or that it displays a culture I never knew, I find this film totally addictive. I suppose it's just that it's different from most comedy's you see today (they definately don't make movies like they used to). Something like that could only happen on film in the 80's.
Anyway, if you were around when all this was really going on, I really reccommend you see this. Trust me, you'll love it!
