review by
Mike Haberfelner

Scott (James Maslow) enjoys nothing more than playing video games, preferably all day and night - and with most people that would be a waste of time, but with him that's a blessing since he and his buddy/producer Joe (Jonathan Fernandez) run a channel where he posts his game reviews, a channel that has grown mighty popular over the years and does earn him a living these days. However, more often than not, gaming makes Scott forget everything around him, especially his girlfriend Aly (Christel Khalil), so when she one day leaves for work with the words "we need to talk," it takes its dear time with Scott for that to sink in - and when it does, he has no idea what she might mean, and all he has for advice are his online gaming buddies Joe, Tango (Tray Chaney), Daddy_Gamer (Peter Patrikios), Lady_Finger (Chrisdine King) and foul-mouthed tween Kyle (Devin Kennedy), and they suggest everything from break-up to ... well, mostly they suggest break-up. Scott desparately tries to reach Aly, but she has left her phone at home, and doesn't pick up at work, so he keeps grabbing for straws, like that she's pregnant - a belief that's squashed before too long. But trying to keep his cool only puts Scott even more on edge, so much so that he alienates Joe, who's not only his producer but his oldest friend, and it's more by mistake than design that he learns where Aly might be - thing is, she's with another man ...

 

It possibly helps to be into gaming (or at least have the first idea about this "world") to understand the fine nuances of this film which is highly satirical about that culture as such - but even if not, this film also works on a more universal level, being about the nature of relationships as such ... just some of the humour might go over your head. And that's really what makes the movie more than your run-of-the-mill romantic comedy, that it also works as satire and really takes its narrative backdrop not just as canvas to paint on but as integral part of the story - and oftentimes, the film is really funny, also thanks to the cast who seem to be really into their roles and keep things grounded ... all of which makes this one entertaining ride.
