You really need to see this at least once. And you'll agree how electronic entertainment can change one person's life forever.
"The Wizard" is about as shameless as commercial films get but it is entertaining. Having the top male TV heart throb in a movie that pretty much advertises every Nintendo game ever made at the time is sure to make a nice amount of bank. Throwing in Christian Slater wasn't a bad touch either. This ranks right up there with "True Romance" as his finest performance. The surprise cameo appearance by the never-before-seen "Super Mario Bros. 3" was impressive in its own right.
Word life fred,
thanks for the memeories
This movie was heartwarming, and also funny- the boys family and the awful (as in a jerk) private detective look for the kids through the movie. You do see some video playing during the movie, but the movie wasn't really about the video games.
3 and a half stars.
