“Game Night” (2018)

This film is one of the smartest and funniest studio comedies of the last few years. This film actually has personality, and is directed and edited with style. The characters are well written and are played by great actors; Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams both have good chemistry, but the real scene-stealer is Jesse Plemons who somehow manages to play a character you’re both scared of and want to give a hug. Because of the film’s twisty plot, this is one of the rare comedies that actually not only holds up on repeat viewing, but it was even better. While I do wish the film had been a touch darker, it doesn’t at all diminish what I feel is a great and funny comedy.

Rating: 4.5/5
