Game Night (2018)

dir. John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein. Wonderfully inventive action comedy. Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman are charming and hilarious as the hosts of their friend group ‘game nights’ that go suddenly wrong. Kyle Chandler (Coach Taylor in ‘Friday Night Lights’) is perfectly smarmy as Jason Bateman’s character’s older brother. Jesse Plemons pretty much steals the movie, as the next door constable, who wishes he was still part of ‘games night’. It was a delightful surprise to hear the amazing electronic score from Cliff Martinez (DRIVE (2011), THE NEON DEMON (2016)). Very surprising film, highly recommended, best not to read too much about it before seeing.
