A writer runs an obstacle course of neuroses as he prepares to debut an important new work in this comedy drama. Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) is a successful playwright who, after a series of hit comedies, is about to debut a deeply personal drama, and is more than a little nervous about how it will be received. Rogan has learned that notoriously tough critic Steven Schwimmer (Robert Downey Jr.) will be reviewing the opening night performance; a bad notice from Schwimmer sent Nicky's good friend and fellow writer Elliott (Griffin Dunne) into an emotional tailspin from which he's yet to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For fans of DeLillo, Keaton and/or either team in that classic Series, this curious little picture is worth tracking down."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"Novelist Don DeLillo brings many of his strengths to the screenplay for Game 6."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Filled with heavy dialogue, Game 6 is a film that feels more appropriate for the stage. That said, it takes on challenging themes and deep thoughts."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Game 6 is ultimately a curious dud, although it makes us anxiously await DeLillo's next time at bat."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"The thudding, obvious symbolism is the film's biggest concern and its primary problem."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"For better and worse, this is a fiction writer's movie: the dialogue is admirably precise, yet the restrictive worldview that's so gripping in DeLillo's books seems like mere solipsism on-screen."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The Red Sox as fatalistic metaphor is almost a quaint notion now, but Game 6 brings it all back to vivid life."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"The big problem here is one of credibility, on a number of fronts."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"If you're looking for a film about smart, confused people who make mistakes (like Buckner) and try to learn from them, this could be it."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"A very nice and simple film, with clear messages and sparklingly witty dialogue."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"... a quirky little comedy ..."
‑ Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle
"DeLillo and company have let one go through their legs."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Um retrato pretensioso de Nova York como centro dramático do mundo que acaba se salvando em função dos bons diálogos e das ótimas performances de Keaton e Downey Jr."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Game 6 is enthralled with the sound of its words, even as it loves the deliberate, sensual pace of a well-played (or well-lost) ball game."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Keaton embraces his role with a relish he hasn't shown in more than a decade, winding his character into new corners of desperation with each scene."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
