Now this… this is the type of movie that falls short of mainstream audiences attention. A movie that is fairly entertaining and enjoyable most of the time but lack its proper audiences and moviegoers alike perhaps because of its advertising that was kept quite low for a certain movie.

Game night has come by far one of the best comedies of 2018 so far… but it is still March. In my opinion this movie doesn’t take itself seriously and its played out humour was appropriate and well executed, unlike comedies such as Neighbours 2 or any Adam Sandler type of comedy films which is entertaining but never pleased the critic. Game Night proved this all wrong.

This is the type of film that may come into the same level or even outcompeting Horrible Bosses, though certainly, its just right below the perfect modern satire comedy such as Bridesmaids or Spy, this one does it good. This movie circulates about a couple who’s a big fan of riddles and guessing games at their weekly routine. It all went sour when the husband played wonderfully by Jason Bateman has a brother that decided to join the game night at his own house and his own game. A murder mystery that is fake but turned out to be real, with clues and hints giving the entire cast problems to actually find Jason Bateman’s brother who has been kidnapped and it all wrapped up under sheer laughter and hilariocity.

As for flaws, I don’t really see much besides the fun that it provides but certain comedies like this may still fall short on the great ones maybe because at certain times this movie has pacing issues and also that certain characters in the movie wasn’t really dealt more further as the movie progress. As also saying its more of an adventure with a comedy element added to it as this movie passes from recurring events to another but besides that this movie was pure excitement.

Rating: B+
