Movie Info

Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max's charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all part of the game - right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this game - nor Brooks - are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they've ever had... or game over.

Critic Reviews for Game Night

All Critics (113) | Top Critics (29)

Game Night is canny enough to go full-throttle with the absurd and not bother trying to do much with its meager dramatic and/or sentimental elements.

The back and forth between McAdams and Bateman is what makes Game Night sing (which is not to slight Horgan's dry wit or Magnussen's elegant idiocy or Morris' magnificent Denzel Washington impression).

"Game Night" is a blast, a sharp adult comedy that earns genuine laughs without going lowbrow or diving into raunchy humor.

The Game Night co-directors deliver a stylish and good-looking movie.

February 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Screenwriter Mark Perez knows the difference between simply making a reference and actually writing a joke - and while the jokes come ceaselessly, they are knowingly and (this turns out to be key) lightly offered.

The jokes are witty, the risk is real and there's at least one thrilling plot twist.
