Thursday's Game
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's been so long since I've seen this film that I figured it had fallen into some kind of vortex. I just finished reading Bob Newhart's very funny book, "I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This!" In writing this, he touches on several television and film projects he did, but he didn't mention that wonderful movie. Oddly, though I cannot remember how it goes, it was the theme music that really caused me to hold on to the memory of this movie. I have no idea why the memory of enjoying a simple little tune (however it goes) would stick more than any scenes. But the plot, that you can never forget.

Dear Lord, please guide one of the many, MANY cable networks out there to find this and show it. I implore you! Amen.
