Movie Review: Game Night

You’re like a double threat. Brains… and you’re British.

Game Night is directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. It stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Klye Chandler and Jesse Plemons.

Max and Annie holds regular Game Nights at their place but when Brooks, Max’s brother show up, he promises a Game Night they will never forget.


The Good

One of the biggest surprise of this movie is how actually good this movie was. It’s incredibly funny and this is Jason Bateman at his peak. His comedic timing is perfect and accompanied by Rachel McAdams they make a very comedic couple.

One of the best part of the movie though is Jesse Plemons, as he steals this movie and easily becomes one of the best part of the film. The movie also had some very interesting cinematography from wide suburban shots that looks like a game board to a seemingly one shot take that keeps your eyes glued to the screen.


The Bad

The only real problem with this movie is the third act. It’s not necessarily bad but rather just a weaker part of the movie. It’s not as funny nor exciting but it leads up to a run of the mill comedy climax.

Overall Game Night is an incredibly funny movie, the cast and were all likable and hilarious in their own ways and the movie had plenty of surprises to offer. If you’re looking for a fun movie to watch, definitely check out Game Night.
