Movie Info

John Lasseter and company set out on a mission to perfect human and cloth animation in this Academy Award-winning short film about a playful codger named Geri who challenges himself to a game of chess in the park. As the competition against himself begins to heat up, the eternally youthful chess player attempts to lighten the mood by playfully feigning a heart attack and finding new uses for his false teeth.

    I really loved watching this and seeing how this played out. One of my favorite Pixar shorts.

    I recognized a character in this Pixar short film from <i>Toy Story 2</i>. Geri sets up a chess game to play his greatest opponent - himself! Both the story and animations are of extraordinary quality. And also the editing is outstanding.

    The overwhelming success of such <u>Pixar</u> features as <b>Monsters Inc</b> and <b>Finding Nemo</b> may mean that's where all the attention's currently going, but their four-minute short <b>Geri's Game</b> is definitely an enjoyable and highly original little movie that deserves to dwell up there with the company's finest output. The quality animation aside, and with the European plaza-style music setting it off to a nifty pulse, it's the slick editing that really makes this concept come alive. Unlike other <u>Pixar</u> shorts, including <b>Knick Knack</b> and <b>For the Birds</b>, <b>Geri's Game</b> may not be a laugh-riot exactly, but then laugh-out-loud hilarity has never been the essential ingredient for class entertainment. What makes this movie so engaging is its intelligent story, gentle humour and truly charming sense of character. The cool visuals are a delightful bonus.
