Game Night | Ratings & Reviews

"Game Night shares its directors with the execrable Vacation, which should trigger alarm bells for discerning viewers. However the same duo worked on the script for Spiderman: Homecoming, which was pretty great, and co-director John Francis Daley gets a lifetime pass just for being in Freaks and Geeks."

"(Game Night) establishes coherent characters and drops them into a twisty mystery plot that’s tightly crafted enough to generate some real narrative momentum..."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"A dense, clever, good natured and occasionally truly funny film."


"Delivers all the undemanding laughs you could wish, and has such a plot of such baroque intricacy that it even manages a few genuine shocks."

Daily TelegraphDaily Telegraph

"Everything you’ve heard about Jesse Plemons in his deadpan supporting role is correct: he is incredible."

Film School RejectsFilm School Rejects

"Game Night is the result of a production eschewing “good enough” and striving for perfection."


"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."

Time OutTime Out

"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."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

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

The GuardianThe Guardian

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

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"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."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

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

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

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