There's something going on at the local video arcade - something totally insane, outrageously hilarious, very sexy and thoroughly entertaining; the hit film JOY STICKS!

This antic romp begins when "The Video Arcade's" newest employee, Eugene (Leif Green, Grease 2) arrives pantless for his first day on the job. Teenage heartthrob Jeff (Scott McGuinnis, Secret Admirer), who runs the arcade and Dorfus (Jim Greenleaf, Liar's Moon), the slovenly video game addict, decide to take revenge on the vivacious Alva (Kym Malin, Weird Science) and Lola for tricking Eugene out of his pants with a wild game of "strip video." But before they can act, King Vidiot (Jon Gries, Napoleon Dynamite) and his sexy troupe of high-tech video addicts invade the arcade and pandemonium breaks loose. In the midst of the chaos, Joseph Rutter (Joe Don Baker, Fletch), an influential businessman, comes into the arcade looking for his daughter Patsy (Corinne Bohrer, Surf II). When he witnesses the madness around him, he vows to see the "den of juvenile delinquency" shut down for good!

Will the city council decide to close the arcade and spoil the kids' fun? Or, will Jeff, Eugene and Dorfus manage to turn Rutter's anger with a little help from Alva and Lola? It all comes together in a climatic and hilarious video game competition - with a winner-takes-all bet on the future of the video arcade in this early 80's cult classic comedy produced and directed by Greydon Clark (Final Justice).

Press Quotes

It's an obvious film with broad performances, and for those in the mood for lowbrow entertainment, 'Joysticks' aims to please. Any expectations for something significant aren't going to be met, but a chance to spy arcade culture in its prime is valued, even when sandwiched between fart jokes.
