Hacker Movie!

I saw Live Free or Die Hard... here's an idea for a hacker movie. There are several hackers working together. All of their hacking is completely plausible. BUT, when they are around non-hackers they use silly graphics and lie out their teeth about what is happening in a way that looks exactly like the "hacking" you see in most hacker movies.

The action comes to a head when their boss won't leave the room and they're trying to stop a hack attempt... so they turn off the server then give an epic description of a battle they're not actually having... while they're distracted, the enemy team steals their boss' laptop.

Eventually, their use of stupid graphics and lies ends up saving the day. I don't really know how that would work, though.
