The trailer for Play the Game. Writer/Director Marc Fienberg s Play the Game is an original comedy with surprising and clever twists about a young ladies' man, David, who teaches his dating tricks to his lonely, widowed grandfather Joe, while playing his best mind games to meet Julie, the woman of his dreams. But as David's supposedly foolproof techniques fail him, Grandpa Joe quickly transforms into the Don Juan of the retirement community. Slowly, the teacher becomes the student, and it's up to Grandpa to teach David that the best way to win the game of love is not to play games at all. But both David and Grandpa Joe may have met their match in more ways than one, leading to a surprise twist ending that makes the audience look back at the entire film in a new light. As a bonus, Play the Game presents three beloved television stars Andy Griffith, Doris Roberts, and Liz Sheridan in 'romantic' situations as you've never seen them before, and continues Andy s meteoric career renaissance that began with last year s indie darling, Waitress.
