There’s trouble in town and it’s video games. High school students spend so much time with the electronic monsters that there’s no time for schoolwork. Shucks.

It’s a true work of deliciously dreadful 80’s trash exploitation movie art that totally nails the rampant hedonism and stupidity of adolescence with uncanny accuracy. All the kids want to do in this film are play video games or make out. They have no ambitions or aspirations towards doing anything meaningful or significant with their lives. They just wanna party and have fun. Come on, people, that’s exactly what being a teenager is all about! And boy does “Joysticks” peg this blithely moronic mindset with spot-on incisiveness and authenticity.

This movie reaches its true moment of absolute cinematic greatness during the legendary strip video sequence. When the camera pans down to show the hot chick’s ample breasts jiggling up and down in extreme eye-popping close-up as she plays the video game those beauteous bouncing boobs perform a majestic ballet that just screams “gleefully mindless sleazy entertainment!” Yeah, the acting stinks, the plot’s a paper-thin joke, the humor is crude and sophomoric, the production values are strictly rock bottom, and the 80’s slang, clothes, and hairstyles now are hopelessly dated and laughable at this point in time, but “Joysticks” nonetheless reigns supreme as a genuine tacky no-brainer dreck artifact of its era.
