Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Game 6, the first produced screenplay by acclaimed novelist Don DeLillo (White Noise), follows the obsession of a playwright, Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton), whose beloved jinxed Red Sox are playing game six of the 1986 World Series--the same night Rogan's new play opens on Broadway. The stories that intersect to construct this ominous character study are woven by stellar performances by a first-rate cast, including Keaton, who gives a not-quite-unraveled reading that reminds us what a strong character actor he can be. Around Keaton is a fine ensemble, including a brittle Catherine O'Hara as his estranged wife ("Nicky, I'm seeing a prominent divorce attorney." "How prominent?" "He has his own submarine."); Bebe Neuwirth as his high-strung paramour; Griffin Dunne as an unglued fellow writer; and Robert Downey Jr. as a Buddhist theater critic whose ruinous reviews are as deadly as the loaded gun he takes to premieres. If the plot is a little far-fetched (and the climactic scene preposterous), the audacious writing and gripping performances more than make up for it. As Rogan says, "Winning is easy; losing is complicated." --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Combining real and fictional events, Game 6 centers around the historic 1986 World Series and a day in the life of a playwright who skips his own opening night to watch the momentous game. The three lead actors, Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr. and Bebe Neuwirth, worked for a discounted salary, $100 per day, on this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, Quirky Movie June 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of movie I used to enjoy seeing a couple of times a year and now see, oh, about once every 10 years or so. An incredibly interesting, odd, provocative movie, that doesn't insult its audience. The acting is phenomenal, the script is really interesting, and the characters are not people you've seen 1000 times before. Although it's sort of about baseball, it's not a baseball movie. It's a pity that so few people want to see interesting movies like this. I loved this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing performances March 14, 2006
Format:DVD
I recently attended the premiere in New York City of Game 6 and was frankly surpised and amazed by what I saw. To me, Micheal Keaton is Batman, Bebe Neuwirth was Lilith, Robert Downey Jr., is well, Robert Downey Jr. What I watched was an amazing story from the master story teller, Don DeLillo, that was full of character, sub plots and great dialog. Keaton, as Ebert and Rober said, gave the first Oscar worthy performance of 2006. His character is torn between his passion for his play that tells the story of his family which opens that evening and watching his beloved Red Soxs in the sixth game of the World Series.

This is not a baseball film, nor is it a theater film. This is a film about people. For anyone that wants to see strong performances deliver great lines under wonderful direction from Michael Hoffman, I highly recommend this film.

Game 6 is a charming and funny movie with Keaton playing a playwright who's afraid of failure. In a tough time in his life, his wife wants a divorce, he thinks a tough critic is destined to hate his play and his cursed team the Red Sox could finally win the World Series. A good reason why his play might fail though is because his lead actor has a parisite in his brain and he can't remember his lines. Keaton is perfect here and for once Ebert & Roeper were right. Although I didn't love the movie as much as them, I do agree about Keaton. People are way too hard on this guy and call him a bad actor. Meanwhile there's also tons of people out there that think he was the best Batman ever.

What I find funny though is that they don't say HOW or WHAT makes him a bad actor. Because you can't, they're just hating on the guy for no reason. Who else could've actually pulled off the part of BeetleJuice without it ruining their career ? Keaton did and he was perfect in that too. Roeper says that Keaton should get nominated for this but that just won't happen. The reason why is that sadly people saw him more in his bad movies like Herbie Fully Loaded, Jack Frost, White Noise and the Presidents Daughter than they saw him in this. Those got big releases all over the world when this film is on dvd alreday. It's pretty sad since this is a good Michael Keaton movie. When he gets offered a movie with a big hollywood release, the script is bad and not worthy of his skill.

The film also has great supporting work, especially from people like Robert Downey jr. He Plays the critic that Keaton thinks is going to totally bash his play. Downey jr. gives a strange but fun Christoper Walken type permformance here. When him and Keaton finally have a scene together it's just excellent with fine acting between the two. This probably isn't a film everyone will appreciate but they should at least give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Game 6 20 years after it happened August 13, 2006
Format:DVD
Now when I heard the title of Game 6, I thought they were going to have a movie that of a bnasbeall game that took place in 1986, 20 years later, but in this movie it does take place during 1 day in October of 1986, when the Boston Red Sox met the New York Mets, (yes I did say the Mets, and not the Yankees) in game 6 at Shea Stadium. The Main character of the movie Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) is a Boston Red Sox fan, and also is a broadway writer/director, and it is also the openning night of his new play. Now this guy takes more rides in Taxis then I have ever seen a character in another movie, and this guy also has problems going in his life. The play is at Music Box Theater, and to have your new play open on the same day, as your team is playing in the World Series. This is the game that the baseball went through Bill Buckner's legs, and the Mets went on to win the World Series, but the good news for Boston Red Sox fans, that within 20 years since the game took place, they got to see thier team win the World Series. Nicky is about to be dirvoced from his wife (Catherine O'Hara), and also a theatre critic named Steven Schwimmer (Robert Downey Jr.) is going to be in attendance at the play, and it going to hate it, and he is warned by best friend, that also had a play that was ripped by him (. And on top of that, his dad (Tom Aldredge) is in poor health, and his daughter (Ari Graynor) is fed up with having to take sides when her parents fight, any child would get tired of doing this, but the good news for her father that she is going to see his play, and even tries to get her to bring a date to the show. The best thing I can say about this movie that it is 83 minutes long, so you can enjoy this mvoie, even if you hate movies that run a long time.

I really got into this little (and with a budget of a half maillion I mean little) movie..and was locked in for the very brief 80+ minute ride. The acting is excellent...and I really felt every character. It has nothing in common with the big budget CGI films dominating the DVD racks but more in common with something like "Doubt" ..a small group of characters who the viewer becomes emotionally attached to very quickly and enter their world. The story may be a bit more effective on people like myself who are sports fans and a bit lost on those who aren't but they can perhaps enjoy the theatre angle a bit more than I did. The movie features some very big name stars in small roles and it certainly doesn't LOOK cheap....very beautifully lit and photographed....just a little gem of a film I felt lucky to see and it made me think about it for the whole day after I saw it. Michael Keaton was just brilliant.
