Very fun, and surprisingly refreshing.
‘Game Night’ is definitely worth a watch. It actually features a fairly simple premise but it’s one that is brought to life splendidly. The humour is strong, as are the majority of the cast. It has some neat camerawork, also.
Jason Bateman (Max) and Rachel McAdams (Annie) make for a terrific pairing, they bounce off each other very well. Jesse Plemons (Gary) low-key steals the show though, his character is so basic but Plemons plays him to perfection – he made me laugh with just the smallest bits of comedy. Jeffrey Wright also appears, as does a certain Mr. Morgan.
There are rumours of sequels potentially being a thing. I mean, I’d check them out for sure but I kinda hope they don’t… I think they would be overdoing it, meaning it would become stale fast. Who knows, though.
Check it out if you get the opportunity.
This is one of the funniest movie I have watched in a long time. It starts out a little low key and slow, giving you no idea what is coming. I wanted to try it because of Jason Bateman from Ozark, so I didn’t read reviews or watch a trailer. I suggest you watch it cold too if you have a choice.
We found the plot to be continuously engaging and full of laughs. There was one scene that made us lose it and laugh like we haven’t done for a movie since the burning dog scene in There’s Something about Mary. I won’t give it away, but will just mention to pay attention when they introduce the squeaky toy.
Okay, a couple of the characters seem rather stereotypical, but even one of those turns out not to be as he seems. I am definitely setting this one aside to watch again at some point.
A classic comedy thriller with brilliant dialogue and memorable characters.
“Where’d you find her? TED Talk?”
If you’re game for a hilarious night at the movies, then see the black comedy Game Night. This romantic thriller is a mix of screwball comedy, Marx Brothers slapstick, and witty repartee you’ll vow to go back for (about the handsomer brother: “He’s like the Mark Wahlberg to Max’s Donnie!”) so you can catch at least half of the brilliant dialogue from the pen of writer Mark Perez.
Max (Jason Bateman) and Annie (Rachel McAdams) is a childless married couple who relax with friends playing highly competitive games like Scrabble and Charades. This night, however, with the return of his charming, successful brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler), the game becomes fraught with sibling rivalry and violence that somehow never eclipses the humor. For the audience, determining what is just a game and what is real is the enjoyable endgame, and not easily solved.
The high-flying chases and quips remind me of Grant and Russell in their screwball days, throwing intellectual barbs while their lives are at stake (about a ditzy blonde guest: “Where’d you find her? TED Talk?”). Although Bateman has cornered the market on the clueless but still sharp middle class professional with the classic slow burn, McAdams is a discovery as a robust bright partner only a little clueless but plenty savvy. Her takeoff on Amanda Plummer with the diner hostages in Pulp Fiction is priceless.
Besides McAdams’ surprise comedic chops, Jesse Plemons as the off- center, next-door cop Gary sheds his Matt Damon lookalike calling card and crafts a memorable role to prove his talent as a comic character. However, he’s just another achiever in an ensemble overloaded with charm. Now and then a fine film comes in this dead-zone time of year: Game Night is that one, a promise of good films to come long after Oscar has gone to hibernation.
above average, for what it’s trying to do – and Plemmons is the MVP
If you’re a comedy filmmaker (or two, in this case) working in what is currently the thing in recent comedies, there isn’t usually much asked as far as visual ambition or even any real vision at all past making sure everything is well lit and the actors are in frame. As far as making the thing *funny*, that mileage may vary depending on who can stomach copious improv or walk-one from people who shouldn’t even be in this kind of movie (for better or worse). While Game Night does have that last part, the directors (behind the, what, Vacation remake, the fuck? Oh ok they wrote Horrible Bosses, got it, I guess) are less inclined to follow the other facets of Hollywood comedies that dont ask much from the makers or the audience expecting more. And it’s funny, and dark, and creative. It also solidifies Jesse Plemmons as a full fledged star (but more on him in a moment).
These guys wanted to make a sorta spoof or take off or, if you want to cal it, homage to Fincher’s The Game, only they go a couple of steps further. They have a solid cinematographer and have a grasp of getting in at least the set pieces more than one would usually bargain for – it’s shot more in some ways like Fincher and other times like a professional neo-noir cinematographer is at the helm – and with Cliff (Drive) Martinez doing the music, it has the total feel of a dangerous, all-at-night thriller…. And from this comes the crazy hijinks and comedy one might expect from the premise of a group of board game enthusiasts (Bateman and McAdams as the main ones, also Billy Magnussen from Ingrid Goed West) get roped into a kidnapping plot involving Kyle Chandler.
But easily the show-stealer by a mile is Jesse Plemmons as the cop neighbor with his little dog and among the great creeps in… Any movie I’ve seen in recent memory. How he is perfectly still, how his face barely contorts and yet one hears all the anguish from being excluded by the gamers (who once or twice had him over, saw how tightly wound he was, and never had him back) and being dumped, it’s all in the eyes and voice. I’m not joking when I say it’s Oscar worthy – if the Academy ever saw that this is just as hard work as what any of this years nominees did to submerge into character like a deep sea diver – and there’s barely a moment when he’s on screen that is not wildly funny.
It’s not a great movie overall, it should be noted, largely due to a couple of predictable beats and then a conclusion/final 15 minutes that feels oddly like a tacked on studio-noted or test screened reshoot – it just feels like they bite off more than they can chew, and after what seems to be the BIG reveal turns out to be not quite the last one, it doesn’t stop being occasionally funny but it drags. And yet I have to commend the filmmakers for casting this so well – Bateman is not completely his usual nice-ish guy and Chandler gets to have some moments that land and shows more of what he’s capable of as a performer – and that they are interesting characters throughout this. Even the arcs that don’t seem to have much meat on the bones (sitcomish on the page) get carried by the actors to wonderful lengths. Oh, and it’s gloriously violent at times and yet feels earned for the style of the film.
