The Daily Movie Quote: WarGames
"Shall we play a game?" - Joshua, WarGames (1983)
MGM, rated PG, 114 minutes.
Directed By: John Badham
Matthew Broderick - David
Ally Sheedy - Jennifer
Dabney Coleman - McKittrick
Barry Corbin - General Beringer
John Wood - Falken
Domestic Box Office Gross: $79,568,000
Synopsis: A young computer hacker thinks he's gained access to a new video game only to inadvertently almost start World War III.
Fact: Martin Brest was the original director but was fired because of creative differences.
Trivia: Professor Stephen Falken is based on real life professor Stephen Hawking.
Movie Mistake: When David is playing Galaga he has three lives. When he dies the screen reads 'Game Over', David should have two more lives.
My Take: After I saw WarGames all I wanted to do was be a computer hacker. What can I say, I was thirteen and impressionable. My actual favorite quote from this film is "Hell I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it would do any good." But "Shall we play a game?" is more likely to bring back memories.
