Verdict: A mix of brilliant acting, great direction, and a tight script. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (writers of Horrible Bosses and Horrible Bosses 2) Game Night is a comedy about a game night that features sibling rivalry, car chases, guns, and even a dog who gets unwittingly covered in blood.

Max (Jason Bateman) and Annie (Rachel McAdams) are two board-game addicts who bond and later marry over their love of competitive gaming. Be it Jenga, Monopoly, Scrabble or Dumb Charades; there is no game they wont indulge in over the weekends with their friends. One fine day, Maxs elder and more successful brother Brooks (Kylie Chandler) shows up and hosts a game at his swanky pad causing the ever-competitive Max to go in an overdrive. ...Read full review
Game Night had me laughing out loud more than once. It has some very clever writing (by Mark Perez), but make no mistake, this is not sophisticated comedy. A lot of it falls into the category of dumb jokes, but who cares when you have a cast with such wonderful comic timing.

Game Night is directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the duo who wrote Spiderman Homecoming and they inject two keywords in this film ludicrous and nutty. Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman play Annie and Max, an oddly competitive couple that likes to get together with a bunch of friends and play very oddly competitive games. Things take a turn with Maxs brother Brooks (Kyle Chandler) shows up and decides to host a kidnapping role playing game in his fancy house, the prize to which are the keys to his even fancier car. Naturally everyone is excited to jump in but the game begins things quickly go hilariously wrong. ...Read full review
A couple find each other and love over a Trivia game contest, get married through a charades bout, and go on to lead their lives from one game night weekend to another. It can sound like a trite idea, and in lesser hands, it probably would be. However, a combination of some nifty directing, winsome acting, and some genuine laughs make Game Night as entertaining a film as one with such limited goals can get. ...Read full review
