    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    There are funny bits strewn throughout Game 6, and it's good to see Keaton in a meaty, nonshowy role for a change. He has the chops when he's not mugging. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    It attempts to walk the fine line between despair and comedy, reality and imagination, and often succeeds. For audiences prepared to take the leap of faith and accept the unusual tone of the film, Game 6 should be a winner. Others may wonder what the fuss is about. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    It's an inside-the-park home run -- a small, lovingly overwritten comic drama about fate, failure, and primal longing. To put it in words a Sox fan would understand, the movie hurts good. show more

    All this stuff is enacted by a better-than-reliable cast (Griffin Dunne, Robert Downey Jr., Catherine O'Hara, Roger Rees, and more), so Game 6 is never a bore. But it's not much more besides never a bore. show more

    The movie includes a recurring motif of immigrant taxi drivers - like them, the movie is constantly going around in circles. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Though Keaton is convincing as a smarmy narcissist who secretly thinks he deserves to fail because writing plays isn't REAL work, he's also thoroughly unlikable -- a problematic trait in a protagonist. show more

    Film Threat

    Fails to make use of its clever dialogue and concepts as it attempts to become something more profound. show more

    Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle

    Game 6 is ultimately a curious dud. show more
