Totally awesome video games! For a very brief time in the early 80s it seemed like arcades were going to replace churches, soda shoppes and parking lots as the number one destination for teen congregations. Horny and hopped up on hot dogs and sugary colas, they were drawn to the blip and bloop siren call of Ms. Pacman, Dig Dug and Burger Time. JOYSTICKS takes this setting and makes it a battlefield in which terrified conservative parents battle high-scoring horndogs for hearts and minds, rainbow-haired punks go toe-to-toe with beefy slobs for the title of «best of the best.» This goofy, teen boner comedy is elevated to Olympian heights by its unique setting, absurd premise, and most of all, Jon Gries' performance as scenery chewing, button mashing, punk patriarch King Vidiot. Long live the king!
