Game Night

Friends who meet for game nights find themselves solving a murder mystery in this comedy from the directors of Vacation, starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams.

Max and Annie's weekly couples' game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler, Manchester by the Sea), 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 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.

There’s a nagging speck of humanity, or at least reasonably quick and cutting marital satire, that keeps the movie afloat.

Lumpy lowbrow humour and characters as thin as a Monopoly board mar Game Night, a comedy with an irresistible premise, but that only.

Ms. McAdams is one of cinema's most accomplished and appealing comic actresses. It's almost heartbreaking to contemplate how amazing she would be in a new comedy that was more than intermittently O.K.

A talented cast, including Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams and Sharon Horgan, ensure that this hit-and-miss caper remains snappy, if forgettable, fun.

A smooth blend of clever sight gags and sharp dialogue delivered by an ensemble who clearly enjoy keeping up the pace.

Farce is a beast to get right in movies. The fact that Game Night hits the mark more often than it hits a wall is cause for cheering. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams make sure its always party time. Talk about fun company. They're it.

A four-hour documentary pitting Bateman against McAdams in an epic Settlers of Catan match-up would have been significantly more interesting ...

There are chuckles here and there, but a striking absence of belly laughs...

Entertaining enough but feels like the same old Jason Bateman movie with a different cast

Honestly, I can't fault it

I went in expecting this to be just another mediocre comedy film and was pleasantly surprised. The whole style of the film may not do it for everyone but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything is done well; the jokes are genuinely funny, the acting is good, the visual presentation is good and personally I thought the score was really great. If I could ask for...

If you are looking for light but crazy this is for you.

I knew what I was getting coming in and it doesn't disappoint, if anything it was better than I expected. Oh.. but a whole bucket load of crazy. These are the type of films you have to review straight away as the particulars are hazy at best weeks later. But it was fun and truly insane and just what i ordered.
