This week, the Plotaholics Time Machine is going back to 1983 for the watered-down Porkys-In-An-Arcade “classic,” Joysticks!
In this film, an angry business man wants to shut down the arcade where his super surfer daughter hangs out with…interesting individuals.
This film stars Joe Don Baker (Walking Tall), Jon Gries (Napolean Dynamite), and a bunch of people you’ve never heard of, and Mark Hamill’s wife from the OG Flash TV show!
This is a film that showcases the Hollywood of the early times of gaming culture, complete with fart jokes and boobs.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy the Plotaholics’ take on 1983’s Joysticks!
