Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff, and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant all played classic arcade video games as teenagers. But now they have to use their skills to try to save the world from aliens. The aliens watched video feeds that they thought was a declaration of war. So they send down the classic arcade games to destroy earth. They also get help from a military specialist. They have three lives and if all three get used then earth will be destroyed, and every time they lose a live the aliens take someone's life. Who will win, us or the aliens? It's an all-out battle to save our planet and everyone on it.Written by
When Brenner (Adam Sandler) and Cooper(Kevin James) first meet Ludlow(Josh Gad), it is perceived that Ludlow is only a few years younger than Brenner and Cooper. In real life Gad is actually 15/16 years younger than Sandler and James. See more »
When Ludlow is in his basement talking to Sam, he correctly mentions that a base was attacked by "Galaga", but points to a picture of the white protagonist ship from the original Galaga video game. The actual Galaga (called a Boss Galaga) is the main ship the aliens use, not the white Fighter Lud pointed to. That ship is called a Gyaraga or simply "Fighter". See more »

Yes, it was ridiculous and stupid but I enjoyed it!
Feeling the need to beef up the score on this movie. I enjoyed it! Yes, it was ridiculous and stupid but I enjoyed it. Paul Blart, The Mall Cop is President of the United States, and Happy Gilmore, the voice of Olaf the Snowman and the children's author that Will Ferrell calls "Elf" are going to attempt to save the world from alien invaders using 1980's video games. I was surprised that my ten and seven year old girls liked it too. However, they had many questions about the references to the '80's pop stars and icons and many of the arcade games meant nothing to them. If you spent any time in the arcades in the early eighties then I am pretty sure you will appreciate this movie!
