Game Night

Comedy Action


 

A group of friends take their regular game night to a new level.

"Game Night" tries to be many things, but only succeeds at being awkward, unbelievable and banal. The cast is adequate but doesn't seem to ever realise their potential, probably due to the hodge-podge collection of plot points and lack of common sense at play. Another issue is that the leading pair in this misadventure has about as much chemistry as a wet sock. The biggest problem, however, is that this film just doesn't know when to quit; it's still trying to pull the rug out from under you while the last red herring is still on the screen. Game over.
