"Best Player" (Nickelodeon TV movie) stars "iCarly's" Jerry Trainor and Jennette McCurdy as online video game rivals who inadvertently learn that the real world can be just as exciting and rewarding as a virtual one. The film follows Quincy is a thirty-something Chinese food delivery man by day and online video game master by night. Simply known as "Q" by fellow gaming enthusiasts, Quincy has dedicated his life to being the best cyber multi-player athlete online. Perfectly happy to live in a tricked-out basement in his parents' home, Quincy's world gets turned upside down when his parents decide to sell their house and move to Florida—without him. His only chance to maintain his "perfect" life is to enter a tournament introducing a brand-new video game, Black Hole, and win the prize money to buy his parents' house. As the current multi-player champion, Quincy thinks it's a done deal…until he encounters "Prodigy," who threatens to annihilate him.

With help from his friend and fellow game enthusiast, Wendell (Amir Talai, "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay"), Quincy sets out to find and stop Prodigy from qualifying for the Black Hole tournament. They are surprised to discover that Q's fierce online rival is not at all what they expected. Prodigy is a smart, shy teenage girl named Chris who is more comfortable destroying competitors in the virtual world than navigating through the perils of high school. With prodding from Wendell, Quincy takes a job as Chris's home economics teacher and unwittingly begins dating her mother, Tracy (Janet Varney, "Dinner and a Movie"), so that he may better "know thy enemy." But Quincy's plan to beat out his nemesis gets complicated when his relationship with Chris and her mother takes an unforeseen turn.
