Doubt: Flynn's Revenge

Because nothing says video games like Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

There are certain movies--usually the big-budget, summer blockbustery type--that, even if the end results usually end up pretty sour, lend themselves pretty naturally to video-game adaptations. But, as Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg from The Lonely Island learn in this video, the tense, morally ambiguous church drama of the Acadamy Award-nominated film Doubt is not one of them. At least not for the Sega Genesis. Perhaps The Reader would've been a better choice?

I saw that during the MTV Movie Awards and laughed my ass off.  One of the best joke video game concepts ever.

I find this video humorous.

Doubt was a decent movie, can't believe I overlooked the game.

By far, my favorite video game based on a movie is Forrest Gump for the Dreamcast.

This is the first vid Samberg's in that I didn't cringe upon seeing since that punching dudes while eating thing.

I like that the sound fidelity sounds a bit like the Genesis :)  Looks like a pretty good brawler, too :)

Posted by dotxhideki

I'm surprised no one commented about the lack of cables on the back of the Genesis.

Posted by Winternet

Impressive. I would buy that game.

@StarFoxA: Most of the effects are from SOR, including the landing SFX and the time over.
Posted by Captainlunchbox

That is great. I love the audio samples.

Posted by catpowerd

This is amazing. Also apparently that NES game from The Wrestler was a  full playable game. Someone needs to put it on the internet.
