About the Film
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples Game Night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So, when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game”— nor Brooks—are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or game over.
Coming off the rather lacklustre and flaccid remake/reboot of Vacation, Daley and Goldstein’s Game Night really has no right to be just as good as it is. The script is wonderfully written with a lot of witticisms, dark at one moment, hilariously abrupt and fun the next with a satirical nihilistic underbelly, dealing incredibly well with the pressure of tone, undeniably owed to the equally fabulous cast list. Namely that of Jessie Plemons who steals EVERY scene he’s utilised in. Both Bateman and McAdams play drama and comedy perfectly with great chemistry, but it’s the tricky twist and turns that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat with ridiculous antics turned up to the maximum, with equally bizzare results.
Better than most comedies that come out, both McAdams and Bateman are great

Great film, great cast, such fun. Brilliant twists and action packed, so funny we enjoyed every minute. This is definitely a keeper...
