Review: Game Night
Game NightA solid black comedy that's smarter and more stylish than most modern American comedies. Dark (but not too dark) without being mean-spirited. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams have good chemistry. Kyle Chandler is the best a**hole in the movie, and Jesse Plemons gives a brilliant, understated performance as Gary, the creepy neighbour, stealing every scene he's in. I didn't laugh as much as I wanted to. There's a running joke that goes on for a good portion of the movie, and the pay-off isn't that great. It doesn't spoil the fun becuase Game Night gets so much right and is consistently entertaining. If you're willing to suspend disbelief, you'll have a good time.
