Violet mentions that the probe contained footage of the Where's the Beef lady, which debuted in 1984. However, it is never claimed that the probe was launched in 1982, only that it included footage from that year. It could've been launched years later and included footage from later years too. Long delays aren't that rare in NASA. Also, the aliens could've updated their data by picking up Earth transmissions after the probe got their attention. See more »

Why are you following me?
I can't believe they even let you in here.
President's Assistant Jennifer:
Colonel Van Patten, you can go right into the Situation Room.
Yeah. See, they need me in the Situation Room, so have fun doing whatever you're doing.

Look at most of the reviews and judge for yourself
This is my first review and i really had to write it after just coming back from watching Pixels.
I'm not going to really talk about the movie, the premise is simple, its just a show about the old arcade games attacking the world.
Is it fun? Hell yeah it is.
Is it funny? Yep, sure is, is it really really funny? Not really, but are there really really funny shows out there anymore? Nope
Is it worth your money? Yes it is.
So look here, the show is about ARCADE GAMES ATTACKING THE WORLD, so why take things so seriously? The people who slam this movie are going on and on about acting, the show being not funny, lame jokes, Adam Sandler trying to make money
Please..who makes movies not to earn money? Look at yourselves, if you didn't enjoy yourself at this movie, you probably are taking life or yourselves too seriously.
The ratings are low because people enjoy arty farty movies too much? Or they are trying to show that they are sophisticated? Movies are supposed to be fun and this one sure is. Looking at the ratings at rotten tomatoes epitomizes the way people think nowadays, all uptight, trying to find a perfect movie and just plain wet blankets.
