Gordon Bennett!! This probably means nonsense to those not born in the 80s, but this classic is finally coming to DVD!

The film is actually quite rubbish (in the "it's so bad, it's good" category) and was blatantly sponsored by Nintendo - but as a kid in the 80s, it was the best thing ever!

Basic storyline (from what I remember) it was about a kid whose younger brother (who had a learning difficulty - picture Rain Boy) turns out to be this complete whizz kid on computer games. They run away from home(!) to go to this games competition held in the other side of America or summat. Along the way, they meet up with some characters including this right twat:



with his POWER GLOVE:



The big thing about this film though was that it was the first time they had shown Super Mario Brothers 3 :shock:



Seriously....I can't believe how excited I was back then - but this was the best thing ever :lmao:

UK Date hasn't been confirmed yet (methinks), but if you do get a chance to watch, WATCH IT!!!!

I've been looking for a copy of this on the net and never been able to find it. I used to love this film when I was younger.
