    This is gaming-related, but it's still a movie. I don't know what to think about this, but seeing it has classic video game characters in it, I'm hoping it gets done properly. I like Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage. Sandler...meh. Also it's his studio producing it. We'll see.

    I still love Adam Sandler's screwball comedies, but hopefully this will not be in the same vein.

    The trailer is here. Check it out. I'm getting a little more excited about it now.

    Well it definitely looks like it won't take itself seriously, but it looks like a fun family movie. That Pac-man scene at the end had me rolling!

    Also, did you see the easter egg frame for the Mobile game download?

    Anything with Adam Sandler has me running the other direction. His movies are complete and utter garbage. I liked the video game theme until I saw he was involved....

    It's got classic video games. I'm going to see it, no matter who is starring in it. Yeah, I know...I'm weak.

    The movie looks super dumb, I'll watch it, although not in the theater but at home.

    BTW, Patrick Jean's 2010 indie animated film that it's based on ...

    I'll pay to see it in the theater. I paid to see both Mortal Kombat movies...why not this one? ;)

    Ehhh, I'm sure it'll be mindless and ridiculous, but I enjoy that about Sandler and Kevin James sometimes. I'm looking forward to it still. Doubt I'll see it in theatres (I barely see anything at the movies), but will be looking forward to it hitting netflix or the like.

    I'm not that keen on recent Adam Sandler comedies so I'm not really excited to watch this in theaters but when it comes out on something like Netflix or the movie channels on TV then I'll check it out.

    I would mainly watch this one for its premise. The first and last Sandler movie I liked was Happy Gilmore. So yeah, exceptions are sufficiently curbed here.
