Game Night is one of the funniest movies I have seen since Horrible Bosses blessed our theaters in 2011. Jason Bateman and Rachael McAdams are a brilliantly funny duo that take the audience on a wild adventure to win the greatest game night ever. There is not a dull moment in this hilarious action packed mystery. I highly recommend seeing Game Night this weekend with your friends.
Director = John Francis Daley & Johnathan Goldstein
Jason Bateman = Max
Rachael McAdams = Annie
Kyle Chandler = Brooks
Max and Annie are incredibly competitive and their idea of a fun night is staying in with their best friends and playing games. Max’s rich and successful brother, Brooks, comes into town and decides to host Max, Annie, and their friends for the ultimate game night.
Brooks sits them all down and explains that this game night will start with someone being randomly abducted. Much like a murder mystery party, the couples will have to use clues to solve the mystery and rescue the hostage. They will not know what is real and what is fake.
However, before the game officially starts, someone breaks into Brooks‘ house and kidnaps Brooks. Max, Annie, and the friends are oblivious to the real tomfoolery going on which makes for a hilarious start to the game night. As the night unfolds, the plot gets crazier and more unpredictable.
I was along for the ride from the very beginning, and I’m certain you will enjoy your time with this film. In addition to a great story, the characters have perfect comedic timing, there are fantastic action set pieces, and very innovative camera angles. I highly recommend Game Night if you are in the mood for a good laugh.
