"The game is tailored specifically to each participant. Think of it as a great vacation, except you don't go to it, it comes to you."

"The Players: Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas), a rich but bored investment banker looking for something to give his life meaning. The Rules: If the players knew that, there wouldn’t be much point in playing. Actually, if they knew they were playing a game at all there probably wouldn’t be much point. How To Win: Learn to appreciate your life. And try not to actually kill anyone."

Movies That Suck (14 movies items)

"I gave it a 4. Which is exactly half of what I would have given it if it didn't feature the absolute worst movie ending I have ever witnessed. The ending COMPLETELY undermines everything about the movie that they had worked so hard to build up, all that suspense and intensity...it's just destroyed in one five minute ending scene that was clearly tacked on because they didn't know how the hell to end it. It turned this movie completely around from a really nice, taut thriller to one of the bigges"
