Joshua searches for the codes to launch the missiles while McKittrick (Dabney Coleman) and General Beringer (Barry Corbin) argue about what to do.

Once more, a wise-guy teenager tries to prove he’s smarter than any adult-and nearly destroys the whole world in the process-in Wargames. Computer-game aficionado Matthew Broderick inadverently taps into a hush-hush Pentagon computer, then proceeds to inaugurate his favorite game, “Global Thermonuclear War”. What we know, but Broderick doesn’t, is that the Pentagon, hoping to eliminate the chancy “human element” in the event of an actual war, has given its computer total, irreversable control over the launching of nuclear weaponry. Broderick and government official Dabney Coleman race against time to reverse the computer’s resolve to send bombers to Russia. Wargames scored a hit, especially with teenage filmgoers.

  1. just unplug the damn thing. i would piss on a spark plug if i thought it would do any good

  2. I love how an Air Force general has to be told by an administrative assistant how many missiles are deployed that would need disarming.

  3. This movie along with others like the day after helped traumatize me as a kid growing up in the 80’s

    Thinking you and everyone you love can be vaporized in 30 minutes if ww3 breaks out isn’t a pleasant way to live

  4. "Just unplug the Goddamned thing!"  Best line in the movie.  LOL!

  5. 0:04 "Those are launch codes."
    "What are they for?"
    Um… I would imagine for the launch?

  6. Did you know that IRL launch confirm codes in 80's was ALL ZEROES? And this fiction beast can start WWIII almost instantly?

  7. ahahaha, the launchcode was 00000000 in the real world a lot of time.

  8. I can't believe that she actually asked what those launch codes are for.

  9. Meanwhile, in real life, the launch codes were 0000 for decades…. it was a news story a few years ago…

  10. Your iPhone now has enough power to fly through all the combos of launchcodes from that era in a matter of seconds…

  11. Interesting as the code for a very long time, was all zeros!

  12. "I don't have to take that you pig-eyed sack of shit!"

    Wow…….somebody is going to need some serious ice for that burn!

  13. The frightening fact is that once an ICBM is launched there is no 'abort' button to stop it, despite what movies like to tell you. And while in the US the authority to launch a nuclear strike lies solely with the president it does not mean he is the only one able to do so.

  14. Why would the screen be projecting the numbers on their shirts- well, besides "movie drama-" it never made sense.

  15. Gen. Beringers' frustration was priceless! LOL

    '…after very careful consideration sir I've come to the conclusion that your new defense system SUCKS!' that was an awesome line!

  16. LOL at 0:16, they set the wrong code. The first letter should be "C", not, "J".

  17. They were inside of you all along, Joshua!

  18. …OLD SCHOOL SKULL …pucking…..AKA:….launch codes%….and i thought my paper shearder had issues?%… just piss on the spark plug!…unplug the god dame thing, was not in the movie i seen!….

  19. "General…the stock market is going through the roof again.
    It would appear the computers have taken over..

  20. I'm with the general on this one. That McKittrick guy deserves a cell in Leavenworth for his negligence.

  21. Barry Corbin is the most underrated actor in history.

  22. It takes a consummate professional to ignore that insult and get back to business

  23. Then later, skynet was born – bcoz… i'll be back.

  24. do you think it is a coincidence this is clip 9/11?

  25. That's a very portly general….no way in Hell would he exist in real life being that hefty.

  26. Scary part is that it would have found them immediately given that the Air Force generals thought the PAL (Permissible Action Link) system wasn't actually feasible and just set the launch codes to all zeros.

  27. Those are launch codes."
    "What are they for?"

  28. "Those are launch codes."
    "What are they for?"

    "As I said: Those are LAUNCH. CODES."

  29. The general is really General Carville from Red Alert 2

  30. Did this movie come out before or after Mathew Broderick got away with murdering those people while he was drunk driving his car?

  31. Considering the launch codes used to be '00000000', I imagine this scene would have gone a lot quicker in real life

    Joshua: Right launch codes, where to begin? Well, lets try all zeros. It won't work, I doubt humans are that stupid… oh, it worked… I stand corrected

  32. General Carville, never change, amazing you.

  33. Why Mattthew Broderick wasn't charged defies logic. Technically he did commit a few federal felonies.

  34. So this is essentially like skynet when it became self aware, except with zero plans to make a robot army afterwards.
