Six close friends meet each week for a game night involving board games, charades and pop culture trivia quizzes. Being the most competitive of the bunch, Max and his wife Annie, who seem to be a perfect match in every way, usually win every time. However, their marriage is on rocky ground as Annie fears that Max doesn’t want to have children. When Max’s shady brother Brooks reappears after a long mysterious absence and suggests that they have their next gathering at his place, no one expects that their weekly game night is about to go to the next level as Brooks organizes a full blown murder mystery party complete with actors as criminals and cops for them. However, when Brooks is violently kidnapped in front of everyone, it turns out that the game is all too real. Now, Max, Annie, their womanizing dimwitted friend Ryan, his domineering Irish date Sarah, and their childhood friends Michelle and her husband Kevin, who’s obsessed with finding out with which mysterious celebrity Michelle cheated him on once, must join forces and their wits to rescue Brooks from two dangerous rival criminals who seemingly want his head. Unfortunately, they’ll also need help from their creepy introverted next door neighbor Gary, a grieving divorcee cop who desperately wants to be their friend.

There are many movies lately that tries to be fun and they almost all fail due to the credibility of the story matching the humor it wants to deliver… but Game Night manages them both very well and delivers an exited and fun experience!
I just love Jason Batemans in these types of movies, he almost always plays the same type of character, this innocent guy that ends up in trouble, his face expressions, his way to act (if he even acts hehe) just fits the roles he makes. This is a typical Jason Bateman movie in other words, and they all are quite good and fun to watch.
So, yes, a recommendation if you like his movies and if you want to have some laughs ;)

RATING: 7/10

About Philippe Antonio

My name is Philippe Antonio and I love movies! Have a movie collection that I wouldn't even trade for a new Ferrari (the gasoline is to expensive) ... I love to draw and have my art on another website Blackbrush.se. Besides that, I also love Gadgets and Zlatan ... well, football generally. I Founded this website for my comic figure at first but has lately just focused on movie/game news, reviews and that stuff. So hope you liked it!
