2018 ***1/2 100 mins.
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star in this hilarious film that you'll want to screen the next time you have a game night! It's one of the funniest, most exciting, and most original films I've seen lately. It's quite refreshing in this day and age of constant superhero movies and remakes/sequels/rip-offs. Bateman and McAdams play an adorable couple whose main passion is...you guessed it...games! Every week they host a game night with their equally passionate friends, excluding their very creepy neighbor... Until one night, when Bateman's more successful brother shows up, and he proposes a game night of his own. His game night is completely unlike anything they've ever played before. He sets up an elaborate mystery, in which people break in and kidnap someone, and the rest are left to find the clues and find the victim! When real kidnappers show up, though, and take the host, the guests are left playing what they think is a game, but turns out to be quite real... Or is it?! This film will have you rolling with laughter from beginning to end, and when you're not laughing, you'll be thoroughly engaged in trying to figure out the twists and turns in the story! This is definitely a film you'll want to own, so you can watch it again and again!
