Searching for Bobby Fischer


Scott's Tip Of The Day: The most disappointing part of the movie, Searching for Bobby Fischer, was that the protagonist didn't even bother looking for Bobby Fischer. He spent the whole movie playing Chess! He didn't look in the closet, or under the bed or anything. Needless to say, I found the movie extremely disappointing and kind of a let down. I wouldn't recommend renting it. You're better off just reading a book.

I was a bit of a chess prodigy as a kid. I saw this on TV with little factoids added to it. The kid it is based on is actually at the park playing chess in one scene. And as Bobby Fischer has gone mad, it would have been a let down had he actually gone looking for him anyway.
