King of Kong
If you're a geek, married to a geek (or an ex-geek) watch The King of Kong -- a documentary about a guy who gets laid off so he tries to beat the Donkey Kong world record. My ex-dorky husband and I (still dorky) laughed and laughed. You can watch it instantly on Netflix and here's their review:
"When Steve Wiebe got laid off, he turned to the classic arcade game Donkey Kong for solace; soon, he decided to challenge Billy Mitchell's long-standing record score. So began the bitter rivalry that lies at the heart of this curiously compelling documentary. Providing a history of competitive video gaming and a look at some of the key players, The King of Kong is at its best when revealing just how far Mitchell will go to retain his crown. "
