Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff, and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant all played classic arcade video games as teenagers. But now they have to use their skills to try to save the world from aliens. The aliens watched video feeds that they thought was a declaration of war. So they send down the classic arcade games to destroy earth. They also get help from a military specialist. They have three lives and if all three get used then earth will be destroyed, and every time they lose a live the aliens take someone's life. Who will win, us or the aliens? It's an all-out battle to save our planet and everyone on it .
|nudity||A kid says his parents are getting divorced because his father cheated on his mother with a yoga instructor named "Sinnamon". A man tries to kiss a depressed woman in the beginning but fails. A crazy video-game nerd has a huge crush on a fictional video-game female character. The same female character (who appears for about a total of five minutes in the whole film) comes to life and wears a short red skirt, revealing slight cleavage and thighs up to crotch level. A magazine and a short clip of a tv show show a woman in a bikini. A man is picked up up and his butt crack is seen as he's carried away. A man smacks guys walks down a line of military men slapping their butts. It's meant to be an sports-like encouragement but it's portrayed in a slightly homosexual manner. Lots of sexual innuendo throughout the movie, ranging from subtle to obvious. A man demands to be alone in the Lincoln bedroom with Selena Williams and Martha Stewart (implied as a three-way) so he can have a "Selena-Stewart sandwich". At the end they are seen in the room and beckon the man to come up and join them. A man tells a woman to ''grab his hammer" so he can save her. After being saved, she tells him he likes to say that. A couple of kiss scenes.|
|violence||Most of the violence is not realistic because everything becomes comically pixelated. The violence is no worse than typical 1980's era video game violence. Plenty of explosive destruction action-movie violence with fighting and weapons. We see a barrel explode and no signs of people injured. A giant Pac-Man is seen chomping on a fire truck, firefighters jump off the truck and land in a street. Centipede attacks Navy SEALs. A smurf gets shot with a laser and killed. A man's arm is shown pixelating after Pac-Man bites his hand off and he screams in pain. A monster explodes, no gore or violence. Matty plays a violent first-person shooter game in front of Sam. Brief blood is shown. The final battle scene is might be violent.|
|profanity||Some minor insults. Uses of Hell, Stupid, Oh balls. Crap, Freakin, God, Dang it, Candy A**, Fugly, Bad A**, Sh*tballs. Though no real F-word is used in this movie, but there is a different kind of saying of it by a British General yelling: "F*ggin Yankee!" Again another reference to the F-word comes when a group of children choir sings a tribute to a winning battle, where they don't get to finish saying "mother..." after being interrupted by a message.|
|alcohol||A woman is drinking wine because she is depressed. The President is about to chug a pitcher of beer, but is interrupted. A woman chugs a bottle of beer. A woman initiates a drinking contest with a man using a bottle of tequila shaped like a human skull. People are shown drinking champagne at a formal function. A man is shown holding chloroform and it is implied he was going to drug a man.|
|frightening||The appearance of some of the video game characters as invaders may be frightening to very young children. Two of the main characters are about to be eaten by the giant Pac-Man, however, both survive. The last 20 minutes may be intense.|
