I saw this movie around 1999-2002 on cable. The movie is about this cute kind of Italian young dude who was playing a video game and somehow the character came alive and fights this dude. This dude has a girlfriend who fights too in the movie somehow she got hurt and fainted, so this dude fights against the bad guy from the game. I think there is an old guy tell him how to fight against the bad big guy from the game. I think the Italian guy looks a bit like the terrorist guy from Boston. skinny with big nose but better looking!
