"Hey, check it out.... I got a film, or an animated short in particular, that only lasts for five minutes on this list of what I think are the best flicks of 1997. B'cuz as short as it is, it's that good. Edit"

"Ihan hupaisa Pixar-lyhäri jossa vanha mies klonkkuilee itseään vastaan shakkipelissä. Vähän sillä rajalla että triggeröityäkö vanhuudenhöppänyyden, yksinäisyyden ym. teemojen kuvaamisesta tällä lailla hupsuna komediana, mutta päätin kuitenkin olla niin tekemättä."

WHY IT'S HERE: The first Pixar short for eight years, 'Geri's Game' was an important short for the studio.
