I'm desperately looking for the name of this classic 80's movie. It involves a boy and a girl who are given a video game that has secret codes or something on it. The guys looking for the game chase them throughout the city to get it. The boy has a imaginery friend, Jack. The boy is the only one who can see him. Jack is from the video game. Can anyone help. ~Courtney

It took me a good while to think of the name of the movie you described, but I think I got it. The name of the movie you want is Cloak and Dagger. Follow this link to see if it's the movie you were talking about. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1558870179

Cloak and Dagger is such a classic - I have it on tape from way back when. It stars Henry Thomas, the boy from ET and a little known movie called Misunderstood.
The secret codes on the video game are only attainable if the player reaches the last level of the game with a certain score. The codes are for the Defense Department for a new jet or something - shows you how realistic it is. At one point in the movie, the boy is at the Alamo (no lie!) and befriends an old couple who he thinks might help him. Then he notices that the old woman is missing two fingers on her left hand...just like the "contact" that he heard one of the baddies talk about! Uh-oh! Run, Henry Thomas, run!
