2. Nicholas’s 48th in The Game

All the man wanted to do is have a nice meal, drink some scotch, and enjoy his birthday in peace. Instead he is sent on a whirlwind of expensive mind games that actually drives him to attempt his own suicide, much like his father before him. Happy birthday!

Really now – did they really think it’s a good idea to send a 48 year old man on a stunt show spectacular through the streets of San Francisco, tossing his car into the ocean, engaging him in vigorous gunfights, and freaking burying him in a Mexican crypt? How is that OK? Why the hell would Nicholas get off of that big cushy stunt fall thing at the end and not be royally pissed? They just made him try to kill himself!

Seriously – how is that not something that could be now used against him? He’s a successful investment banker who is now going to be forever known as that guy who attempted suicide at a fancy party. Terrible birthday present.
