Its game-over for Sandler and his crew, who are being attacked by aliens disguised as ‘80s arcade games.
Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and many other arcade games want to kill us and the fate of the earth rest in the hands of immature video game geeks (Sandler, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Kevin James) … right. This disaster directed by Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire and Harry Potter 1 & 2) is a new substantial low for him. Seeing this film in 3D will melt your eyes as a giant Pac-Man rolls around New York City eating everything in its pathway. With James (the president) killing smurfs and Sandler jokes falling flat, this film was set up for failure from the start. Sadly, not even Dinklage’s mullet can save this film. Shame.
