    I agree with the title, but not for the same reason.

    Think about Wedding Crashers. The guys in there are tagged as being really good at pickup, but the movie ultimately denigrates their behavior as sleazy (which it is - but not because they're sleeping with lots of women per se, but because of the way they're doing it) and idealizes monogamous romantic relationships.

    If a mainstream movie is made about game, it's likely either to follow this pattern so as not to upset conventional thinking, or it's going to make game even more misunderstood among the general public than it already is - or both.

    That's why I don't really use any canned shit. What I learned from pickup books is how to be confident, cocky/funny, don't put woman on a pedestal, etc. That's where the real game comes from!

    I think it would be kind of funny to see it as a movie.

    Most likely the movie will not even be called "The Game",it will probably be cut to pieces and turned into another "Stupid,Crazy,Lo ve" clone where the focus will be on Style falling in love with Lisa,I bet they will spend like 20-30 minutes to cover the whole PUA stuff.

    Also this is nothing new,there are tons of movies where a guy that is good with women teaches other guy(s) to be good with women,i highly doubt they will even use any of the PUA terms like the M3 model.

    Worst case scenario,the movie will be 9 hours long which covers everything and is super successful.
    Just don't use the canned material from the movie and you'll be fine.

    Don't worry about it. There are an infinate number of ways to get a girl... this movies is going to do nothing for the sport or what we are all trying to achieve here. When the movie is announced, I'm sure there might be some talk, if anyone outside the comunity i.e. girlfriend , wife, work idiots, I'll disimss is at fun fiction worth watching. I feel it might flop, followers will porbalby watch it on DVD alone... can't imagine talking a date to see it. They will probably give it some holywood spin and get shit all wrong anyway. It will be like swingers on acid. No worries friend.

    Granted, It could be a real work of art if the true authros and creators of the material were fully in charege, but then we'd call it educational material! I'm glad it's getting done and getting some well deserved cash to the right parties.

    i can see why you are worried , but just because someone has read "the game" doesn't mean that they are a pick up artist.

    Part of me agrees with you but then again most guys (Even AFC friends of mine that i have tried to help with the PUA community) feel to ashamed to admit they need help. They will feel like less of a man so in turn chalk it up to fiction. You either have game or you don't. We of course know how false that is but it won't really matter to the AFCs that refuse help and insist that they have it even tho they get laid once a year at best. Besides if the community never came out even as much as it has then I wouldn't be here talking to you guys. I would be looking up porn and feeling sorry for myself. I'm halfway through The Game now (Ive had it for 2 days. Lol) and it's way different than I expected it to be. So far Neil is talking like the community is a curse(I know that it can be if you get consumed but nontheless).
    Any of you guys in the Dayton Oh area let me know and we will sarge.

    I have never told a girl that i was aspiring to become a PUA but one of my friends has and he said that chicks dig it. I know I'm at the point to where i am going to be open about it. If a chick asks if i've used that stuff on her i will tell her yes. If she has a problem then screw it ill move on to the next girl(I won't be a dik about it though. Lol). You don't hide the fact hat you have been to college. And if you are fat then girls will want you to go on a diet and work out (And they will openly say this if you ask them) so why not tell them that you have worked on your game? I don't feel that you should hide it or be ashamed. You had a problem in your life and you took steps to fix that problem. Thats a very good thing. Not something to sweep under the rug. Just my thoughts on the subject. Lol.

    I will personally beat anyone who brings this up again to death with a handful of cacti dunked in tobacco sauce and kosher salt. I am not fucking around here. This isn't even a dead horse anymore. You are just kicking a headstone that kind of sort of looks like maybe it belonged to a horse at some point.

    Shut up.
    All of you...
    Just shut the hell up.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “WOW...What a Ride!”

    Or maybe those of us who actually have real personalities and real thoughts of our own and aren't just walking tape recorders spitting out whatever we read in a book or learn in a pua bootcamp will actually start getting laid again now that the shear phoniness of all of this is exposed- assuming it is all phony as those of you expressing concern seem to recognize. lol

    Here is an analogy -

    Lets say you wanted to learn Chinese at a time when nobody cared about it.

    And Lets say that you found the only How to learn Chinese book in a book store in your city and then you spent three years studying this book and eventually learned Chinese and as a result you were able to speak Chinese with Chinese people very well.

    Then after three years, suddenly the publishers of this book started publishing more copies of this book and many people started buying this book at the book store.

    Does this actually detract from your skill as a Chinese speaker?
    The answer is no

    Are the people who are buying this Chinese book actually going to get as good at Chinese as you?
    Most of them will not. Because you didn’t just buy the book, you bought the book and then dedicated three years of your life to doing what ever you needed to do to get better at Chinese. Not everyone is as determined as you.

    Even if other people get good at Chinese will this stop you from using you knowledge of the Chinese language to help you in life?
    No, if anything this will make your ability even more valued and respected by others who are now aspiring to have the skills you already have.

    To there is an analogy. The same can be said for being a PUA.

    I’m not worried about this film at all. It will be good material for openers. lol
