Saw this one in theaters and really liked it. Will probably pick up the 3D version at some point. I'm disappointed by the extreme lack of extras on this release. Not even a Chris Columbus commentary? Now that's just weak.

I almost - I mean, I had a call time - worked on this. I decided, no.

I didn't hate it, but it was pretty forgettable. Not something I'd recommend people pay to see, basically, but fine to watch if you come across it and haven't anything better to do.

I definitely attribute its failure to Adam Sandler and Co's increasing irrelevance as well as the fact that it is a movie about video games....They have a reputation for sucking and everyone knows that, even if this wasn't based on a specific video game but rather video games in general.

Just updated review because I forgot to mention the subtitles are not CIH friendly.

I feel this movie would have been more favorably reviewed had Sandler NOT been in it. Maybe put Will Farrell in place

Because it absolutely BOMBED at the box office. I'm shocked Hollywood still signs Adam Sandler.
