The Game



The Game

This is one of the most ridiculous movie I've ever seen. No, it's not stupid, like George of the Jungle or Good Burger, but it's just too far-fetched. It has the craziest, most unbelievable and confusing plot I've ever seen in a movie. There were so many twists and turns in the plot that I felt dizzy.

Douglas portrays stuffy, billionaire businessman, Nicholas Van Orton, whose brother Conrad thinks he needs a little more fun in his life. So, Conrad gives his brother a gift certificate to Consumer Resources Services - a company that supposedly provides you with an enthralling game to play. Within three days Douglas has been beaten up, trapped in an elevator, had every one of his many hefty bank accounts drained, and - the ultimate insult - been left for dead in Mexico. Some fun game.

Aside from the plot - which has a surprising, if screwball, ending after many startling developments - I don't like this movie, mainly because of Michael Douglas. (If you want to know the truth, my mom dragged me to The Game because she loves him, but I'm not his biggest fan.) The Game didn't change my opinion. Douglas basically sleepwalks through this part, not even showing emotion in scenes where he should be smoldering with rage.

My Rating = Two Stars
