Get caught up in a murder mystery they think is pretend

As they face what could become a deadly end

The Big Finish

Competition is an addiction and for these gamers they will stop at nothing to prove they are the best. Jason Bateman is business as usual as he never disappoints in the dark comedy department. It is also great to see Rachel Mcadams return to her humorous side as she has an undeniable charm that is captivating and makes you want to see her succeed. Jesse Plemons is scene stealing with his creepy performance as well as disturbing dog stroking. We all have that one friend we don’t invite to group activities for a reason and right now you should be giving that person a phone call. Lamorne Morris also has an awesome Denzel impersonation. This film steers away from clichés as just as I thought I knew what was going on, an unexpected swerve would turn into a different direction. There is a perfect mix of action, mystery and humor. This film even managed to make the dog scene funny a spot I rarely enjoy in movies. Game Night is a clever display of how there are some things more important in life then winning such as the safety of your loved ones and excels in being everything a comedy should be.
