Ignore what the know-nothing yahoos on [...] keep telling you. This is an awesome movie for the whole family. Once you get past all the advertisement material, you'll see this movie for what it really is; a heart-warming story about an autistic boy about to be institutionalized when his older brother runs away with him and discovers his knack for video games. They then meet up with a drifter girl who tells them about a video game championship in California. They then use her smooth talking and Jimmy's talents to get them all the way whilst avoiding their family and a relentless bounty hunter.
You really need to see this at least once. And you'll agree how electronic entertainment can change one person's life forever.
