View All Audience Reviews. A Million Little Things. Fun and surprising comedy that feels like the love child of s Touchstone movies and the Farrelly brother's Non-PC romps. Because of the tightly written script, the funny characters, and cleverly well-choreographed sequences of action, "Game Night" is a fun ride. So far, critics seem to approve: Perversely, the more successful a given reboot is, the easier it seemingly becomes to pull this same trick again the second that a particular instalment mildly underperforms.

Every Monday night, Aaron Tyler Johnathon Schaech and his friends get together for a friendly game of poker. They've had the same routine for years, and it's always been a low-key affair. Season 3 This Is Us: Season 3 The Walking Dead: The Awards Season Calendar. Il portiere di notte The Night Porter View All Photos 2. The psychology of a sadomasochistic relationship between a former Nazi storm trooper and the concentration camp prisoner he loved provides the basis of this provocative, at times sexually and violently graphic drama.

The story is set in the late '50s at a Viennese hotel that is owned by and plays host to former Nazis who get their kicks at the sadistic hands of the hotel porter, the ex-trooper. Most of them are facing trials for their war crimes, and all of them have taken care to get rid of any possible witnesses to their atrocities. The trooper too feels safe. His illusion is shattered when a woman and her husband check into the hotel and he recognizes her as the woman with whom he had a very kinky relationship in the concentration camp.

They soon rekindle their painful relationship and episodes from their past and present are graphically depicted. They remain heedless of the attempts of the other guests to stop their twisted affair.

With a talented cast turned loose on a loaded premise -- and a sharp script loaded with dark comedy and unexpected twists -- Game Night might be more fun than the real thing.

The movie is a hollow throwback to classic comedy, and it shines only by contrast with dull studio competition. It's very funny, with a script by Mark Perez, and all the pieces fit together like a perfect Rubix cube.

The back and forth between McAdams and Bateman is what makes Game Night sing which is not to slight Horgan's dry wit or Magnussen's elegant idiocy or Morris' magnificent Denzel Washington impression. Because of the tightly written script, the funny characters, and cleverly well-choreographed sequences of action, "Game Night" is a fun ride. A vulgar, violent, solidly R-rated comedy that is nevertheless sophisticated rather than gross.

Packed with delightfully quirky characters and zany plot twists, it's far better and more amusing than the trailer would have you believe. Game Night is a great film and is a must-see for anyone looking to watch something lighthearted and funny. A solid ensemble comedy thriller that inspired some genuine chuckles from me Fun and surprising comedy that feels like the love child of s 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.

Quick witted and fun, this one has super competitive love partners getting involved as in 's "Date Night" in the real world of imagined gangland diabolical machinations. The cast is lighthearted and up for the game and therefore very engaging. Good comedies are extremely hard to come by these days.

For every great one, there seem to be roughly 20 terrible ones. That's not a great track record to have, but in all fairness, the great ones feel like such a breath of fresh air when they hit theatres and are talked about positively in the public eye.

So, I think you can see where I'm going with this. Game Night is one of the best comedies I've seen in quite some time. It doesn't break new grounds in terms of humor, but when a movie can hold your interest and keep you engaged even when there's no comedy in a specific moment, it's doing something right.

It's rare for me to say this, but I think you'll be hard-pressed to assume that you'll see a better mainstream comedy in the coming months of If you're looking for an entertaining ride at the movies, here's why I think you should check out Game Night.

Following a group of friends who gather together for a night of board games and charades once a week, they're in a state of shock when an old friend and brother of one of them shows up to play. Giving them an invitation to his place to continue their tradition elsewhere, a murder mystery night turns into a night of twists on top of twists. Are people actually being murdered? Are the double-crossers really double-crossing? These are questions that constantly come up throughout this movie and that's precisely what made it such a good movie as a whole.

I loved the fact that it didn't try to come up with stupid jokes as filler. The comedy in Game Night is terrific and very well-written.
