Game night is taken up a notch when it becomes an impromtu murder mystery party complete with fake thugs and federal agents.
One of the party, Brookes, is kidnapped and that’s fine. It’s part of the game, right?
Wrong. As the friends split up to solve the case they unravel numerous clues that just don’t match up. And so ensues a choatic night of trying to find Brookes before it’s too late.
On the surface Game Night comes across as an a-typical group comedy movie. Don’t get me wrong, it is, but it’s also so much more. It doesn’t go for the obvious gags, instead opting for the slow burners.
