RMG 283 – The Game (1997)

March 16, 2022

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Nathan Bartlebaugh (check out more from Nathan HERE), and are geeking out over The Game (1997) and

  • Michael Douglas’ smugness
  • old(er) movies
  • the elaborate game
  • rich boredom
  • and much, much more!


There are no rules in “The Game”… And that will make life very difficult for Nicholas Van Orton, a shrewd and successful businessman who is always in control. Well-bred and established, Van Orton lives an ordered life… Until an unexpected birthday gift from his brother Conrad destroys it all.

Like it or not, Nicholas has been enrolled in a game – a profound life experience – that begins quietly but soon erupts in a confusing maze of devastating events. Terrorized by forces who seem intent on dismantling all that he has built, Van Orton has to win this deadly game or lose control of everything in his life.
