Finally a Good Movie
Bravo. Hollywood finally hit a home run this year.
In a movie landscape often dominated by retreads and sequels Game Night is original, funny and highly entertaining.
The film stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams and follows a group of friends whose game night turns into a real-life murder mystery.
For half the movie the game night friends think a real kidnapping at their party is a staged event and try to follow the clues to solve the "crime" and win the game. Slowly everyone finds out they are in the middle of a criminal conspiracy.
The movie brings back memories of a similar film, Murder by Death, which had phony murders committed to stump the world's greatest detectives who were invited to a weekend getaway.
It is rare for Hollywood to take the road less traveled. In this case taking that road paid off.
Rated an 8 out of 10
