Game Night Reviews
A combination of some nifty directing, winsome acting, and some genuine laughs make Game Night as entertaining a film as one with such limited goals can get.
Game Night provides a pleasant enough diversion for the fluff seekers.
The filmmaker duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein employ the same irreverence they used when they co-wrote 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' and deliver a ludicrous laugh-riot with 'Game Night'. So go ahead and revel in the craziness of this film as it takes you for a sweet, silly ride.
This dark comedy mystery isn’t as polished as something like a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, but it’s nice to see this kind of an irreverent film in an era where comedy movies compromise on intellect or craft. This is a rare comedy that doesn’t require you to wade through the muck to find one or two laughs — it’s a genuinely well made film with repeat value, so head to the theaters now.
Game Night isn’t perfect, and an electric first hour gives way to a slow third act that’s handicapped by the gimmick wearing thin and a too-earnest side plot about Max and Annie’s shifting plans to have a kid. But it kind of redeems itself by the end with a series of twists and turns fitting of the absurd premise.
