I laughed a few times - so there's that and the video game effects and 80s-era messages from the aliens are pretty good but the movie fails because the characters are, for the most part, worthless. Adam Sandler doesn't even seem to be trying at this point and his interactions with the stunning Michelle Monaghan are just cringe-worthy. Josh Gad is a shouting conspiracy nut, Kevin James is the president (and an idiot on to a Bush-level degree) and even Peter Dinklage is mostly wasted. Overall, probably as bad as you are expecting.
