About the Movie
When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth, using the games like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Pixels is devoid of cynicism and it has a cheerfully cheesy vibe, and it's the kind of movie you'll forget about a week after seeing it.
Rotten: This is a film in which a viewer can be forgiven for rooting for the old video game icons to annihilate humanity. God help us if the best savior we can muster is Sandler.
Rotten: Nostalgia is a wonder and a cheat. The right touchstone can make the most discerning movie-goer forgive a film as lazy as Pixels. Almost.
Rotten: Welcome to the End of the World, Adam Sandler-style.
This movie was actually alot better than we all expected. I'm a big Adam Sandler fan, and recently I have been let down quit a bit. But Pixels was a huge upgrade. The laughs were there, the storyline was consistent. I was glad some old jokes were brought back, (somebody's closer). Very enjoyable, I took my son, also a huge Adam Sandler fan cuz of me, not to mention a huge video game fan as well. I hope to see more of this type of movie from this franchise. Keep 'em coming please.
This is a good movie
I have no idea why critics hate this, it's a great movie, one of Sandlers best. I can't reccommend this one enough.
One of the best movies I have seen
This is one of my favorite movies and it has made everyone that was sitting in the theater laugh so I doubt that you will hate this movie
