Wanna be a pickup artist but hate reading books? That's okay, The Game is coming to theaters

05.26.2010
I don't know enough about Neil Strauss or the details of his book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists, but I get the overall gist. What I think is funny is how many people on the internet think this guy's a douche or that the things he's generally saying (which any number of well-adjusted and sociable men would also tell you) are somehow scummy. Here's the bottom line, fellas: No woman wants a guy without any self-respect.

So anyway, said book has been picked up by Lionsgate with Adam Sztykiel (DUE DATE) writing and Ari Sandel - who won an Oscar for his USC graduate film WEST BANK STORY in 2007 - in talks to direct.

The book, according to Variety, "recounts 'an average frustrated chump's' attempts to become the world's best pickup artist with the help of professional seduction experts."

This book isn't what you think!!

This book has very little to do with how to pick up chicks. Instead, it rips apart all the Guys who claim they are pick-up artist and sell their advice. This book exposes these Frauds! Seriously all the characters are a bunch of douchebags who trick other douchebags into buysing thier "methods"

LOL this is hilarious

Ok, i'm embarrassed to admit it but i read this book. It's actually a pretty good read. Strauss basicly takes you inside the world of this new money making of industry and rips apart all the fuckers who are involved. He exposes them all for being hackjobs. So if they make this movie, i just hope they stick to story of this book. Cause it's fucking hilarious!

I dont know.

On one hand...I say we might need a movie like this, considering all the Sex and the cities, He's just not that into you, stuff we tend to see way more often than we should. (I get it by the way. Men are idiots and women should rule the world.) But on the other hand, this could be kind of bad, but we'll see once they start casting this bad boy. I think with the right actors it could work.

dont they already have a tv show dedicated to this type of thing? the only time i watched it was with my dad and the only thing that was entertaining about it was 1. how very stupid the chicks were and 2. how hard i could make my dad laugh when i'd say what my answers would be to said pickup artists - there are pickup likes you can use as a joke when your with an aleady established girlfriend and we'll think its cute/funny for the most part, but other then that? stop butting into a good

any guy that actually needs to use the ideas that are in that book to pick up women have ZERO actual social skills with people and don't understand how suprisingly simple attracting people that they are attracted to is - if you are confident and secure with who you are.

The whole concept is thinking that it is a good idea to make sure a woman feels bad about herself so you can move in for the kill. wtf? Are they all 15?

Hated that book but I had to read it for a work related project I

Hated that book but I had to read it for a work related project I am involved in.

Of course, I'm a well adjusted, good looking man who has no problems talking to women.

I WONDER WHO WILL PLAY STRAUSS

Neil Strauss is a skinny little bald ugly jew, but i'm willing to bet the actor they get to play him is more likely to be unconventionally good-looking than ugly.
