Watch or Nah?: Game Night

Hello World,

The new comedy movie, Game Night came out a few weeks ago, and I got the chance to see it last night. I don't usually watch comedies, because I have a real particular sense of humor, but this film was surprising. Without further ado, here's my review! 

Film/ Television Show Information

Name: Game Night

Genre: Comedy, Crime, Mystery

Director : John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein

Main Cast: : Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler


1 = Trash

2 =Meh

3 = OK

4 = Solid

5 = Bomb

Acting/ Performance


This film has an excellent cast that showed good chemistry with each other, and they all had good comedic timing, which made for fluid performances. 



This film is very plot driven, and the story itself is okay. It's a good mixture of comedy and suspense, but the script is very sharp. It's funny without using simple dumb humor.



This film doesn't focus on how things look on the screen, it's much more about what's going in, so visually there is nothing special.

Costume Design


There was just nothing particularly special about the costume design in this movie. I don't feel it took away from the film or added anything. 

Editing/Special Effects


This film didn't use a lot special effects, but it did make use of good editing. The fight choreography and the chase scenes were excellent. 



I found the music to be distracting and disjoint from the scene at times, but overall the music was pretty decent. 

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 3.5/5.0

Recommendation: Watch!😏  

These days it seems impossible to create a good movie that's also a comedy, but people keep trying, and people keep failing. But sometimes, they succeed. And that's Game Night. This film is a surprisingly funny movie with a clever script and a good cast. It's a comedy, mystery thriller, I think most people would enjoy. If you like comedies, then you should definitely good watch this movie. But if you're not really a fan of comedies, like me, then you can probably wait until it comes on TV. It is not a bad movie, but it's not a "must-see" movie. But overall, I would recommend this movie, you're bound to laugh at something in it! 

Au Revoir,
