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 (250) | Top Critics (40)

The long joke of the narrative is adroitly handled, and for once the climax pays off in laughs.

March 9, 2020 | Full Review…

The movie is a hollow throwback to classic comedy, and it shines only by contrast with dull studio competition.

March 5, 2018 | Full Review…

The spoofy action set-pieces are ho hum. What's special is the minutiae-based, casually political banter.

March 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's clever, silly, slick and fun.

Top Critic

Delivers all the undemanding laughs you could wish, and has such a plot of such baroque intricacy that it even manages a few genuine shocks.

March 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The raucous energy of the early scenes isn't sustained and the film becomes increasingly repetitious and silly. The comedy elements here work far better than the thriller ones.

Audience Reviews for Game Night

Game Night meshes together a twist-filled plot, outlandish gags and a clever fusion of visuals and its game-like atmosphere. The film is a surprise move that's got a surprising amount of heart and entertainment. 4.4/5

I can't decide what is most fun in this superbly refreshing comedy: if the awesome dialogue, the outstanding camerawork and direction, or the hilarious situations the characters get into, despite how the film tries maybe a bit too hard to be surprising without really needing to.

Fun and surprising comedy that feels like the love child of 1980s Touchstone movies and the Farrelly brother's Non-PC romps. Full of twists and with actors obviously enjoying their work this makes for a very entertaining film.
