Basically if you like Adam Sandler movies, you'll like this one. If you don't, then you probably won't. I have 3 kids ranging from college to junior high, 1 boy and 2 girls, and they all enjoyed this movie. We have watched it several times and if it comes on TV, then they ask me to turn it on. Don't go looking for deep meaning or a complex love story, but instead for campy jokes and slapstick humor. This movie is a little bit of a throwback to films like Spaceballs, Airplane, and other movies that aren't "politically correct" today, but still have entertainment value.
I don't think every Adam Sandler movie is automatically "Gold", but you know it is at least going to make you laugh... Nostalgia is the perfect word! All of our favorite Arcade characters and all humor from the best years of SNL. If only Chris Farley was still alive - they could have made some of the best movies together. I'm glad Adam Sandler is still with us and will be giving us awesome movies for years to come. 😆😆😆😆😆
This movie was atrociously bad. Another crappy Adam Sandler cash-grab, but even worse than normal. Jokes fall flat, most of them are just references that are somehow funny. Aims completely at the lowest common denominator who used to play arcade games as kids and think crappy one-liners are funny. Tons of plot holes, like one likeable character, and awful misuse of the original properties. Sadly, most people will love it because "LOL I KNOW PACMAN."
