Shall we play a game? You can go to jail for that!

Never mess with a US military computer. Didn’t we all learn that back in 1983 when WarGames came out?

And as he’s over 18, unlike the cocky but cherubic-looking Matthew Broderick starring in the trailer over the jump, his chances of escaping a jail sentence are beginning to look rather slim.
