Game Night is Comical and Memorable


When I watch a movie trailer, it’s the funny moments that stand out to me, and, of course, my favorite actors catch my attention. I like a movie that will make me laugh and keep me interested, and that is exactly what Game Night offered. Filled with action and speechless moments of laughter, Game Night is a movie you don’t want to miss.

Released on Feb 23, Game Night, directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, has been a hit comedy — one of the best I’ve seen this year. It all started with the weekly “game night” between a group of young adults. Normally it’s a total of three different couples, until Jason Bateman’s “brother” shows up in town. He is the real game changer.
Brothers, played by Jason Bateman and Kyle Chandler, continue to compete with each other to prove who is more successful. In their minds, it is important to win each game no matter the cost, until an unfortunate event- game night gone wrong.

Something that made this movie memorable is how relatable it is in a comical way. The playful relationship between the main husband and wife is presented throughout the whole movie, which creates a fun environment even in times of danger. As seen in the trailer, McAdams accidentally “shoots” her husband, Bateman. The scene of her trying to help him with his wound in the movie has to be one of my favorites… but I can’t give it away.

It is not uncommon for a movie to be predictable, but that’s what made Game Night stand out. I went into the movie expecting it to be predictable, but I couldn’t stop watching once it started.
Two characters that will catch your attention is the egocentric brother played by Kyle Chandler and the mysterious cop played by Jesse Plemons. There is never a moment of certainty throughout the entire movie, which I found very appealing and the reason why I would recommend others to see it.
