#661 Joysticks (1983)

Joysticks is a movie about arcade games – but it could’ve been just as well about fidget spinners, had they been the rage at the time. The theme of the movie was selected simply to lure in teens.

And a teens movie it is in all accounts.

If you’ve seen another early 80s sex comedy like Porky’s, you know what to expect here: Tits, sexual innuendo and juvenile humour are aplenty. The movie’s vision of an arcade is a studio like warehouse with half naked teens dancing around in front of cabinets, and the jokes mostly consist of someone farting or dressing up like women.
