A group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves trying to solve a murder mystery.
Game Night starring Rachel McAdams, Jesse Plemons, and Jason Bateman, is a fun and entertaining comedy in a time when we could use a little humor in our lives. The story is straight forward and Bateman and McAdams show a good chemistry and are believable as a young couple in love even if they are (especially Bateman) a little old for this role. The star of the show however is Jesse Plemons (The Post, American Made) he plays the ex husband who we only tolerated because he was married to your friend. His use of stillness creates an uncomfortable yet funny feeling and he steals every scene he is in.
The story gets a little off the rails in the third act with maybe one too many twists but overall the humor hits most of its beats and delivers with good comic timing. There was one scene with a white Bichon that had the audience in stitches.
Game Night is worthy of a date night to the theatre.
There are no references to faith or religion in Game Night.
