    Yeah, that was a fun movie. I'm surprised that Jahns like discovered Bateman's comedic skills... they've always been there, and this movie isn't his best. The real revelation as a comedian here is McAdams. Gosh is that woman gorgeous AND delightful in it. But the movie is pretty flawed too. Not all the jokes work, some are pretty lazy. And unlike what Jahns says, no, not all characters work : the moron is a total failure, from a comedic standpoint (100% morons aren't interesting, this one is so brain dead he shouldn't even have a job) and a dramatic standpoint (the main couple couldn't possibly hang out with him).

    I didn't like this movie at all, the humor was very cheap and ineffective for me at least,it was predictable, and it was riding the line between a full blown comedy movie and a drama, and if it commited to being a full blown comedy and taking things way less seriously it might have been okay. The plot seemed rushed and it became too convoluted towards the end when the neighbor said he staged things, they didn't really explain it at all. Plus there were a lot of stylistic choices that were there purely for style when it comes to the cinematography. The characters were limited to cliches, and there were a ton of unnecessary scenes that took me out of it. Are they really doing. A cutaway scene for the Denzel Washington bit? It wasn't funny lmao.
    I think it could have benefited from some dramatic irony to demonstrate that real kidnappers came instead of the fake ones, but it didn't do that. It spent the opening scene with a montage of the couple over the years, eventually getting married and then seeing a fertility doctor, which is one of the most trite, overused movie devices ever. I don't get it. This wasn't for me

    First tweny minutes was like: "Why there is so many product placement" but They , thank God, stop it , well some here and there but not so annoying like in the begining.
    Head&Shoulders scene for me it was tje worst ptoduct placement ever.
    Movie is great even though. Go see it!

    Seriously though, the whole plot point of someone not wanting to have a baby with Rachel McFUCKINGAdams was ridiculous all throughout the movie. She’s fucking gorgeous!

    I LOVED Game Night. It really surprised me by how funny it was. I laughed out loud a ton. I'm also glad I'm not the only one bothered by the convenient regrouping in the kitchen.

    I had the same reaction as you, only saw one trailer. Then when I was buying some popcorn, I saw another trailer and really thought this was gonna be bad. I don't laugh easily at movies, but I enjoyed it a lot and actually laughed out loud a lot of times.

    Damn, I wondered what the rating would be after waiting to watch this until I saw the movie myself. I like what they did with a lot of the camera work, the overhead camera like a game board, the look of a 3rd person camera when driving, but I can admit I wasn't feeling the one shot egg scene. Feel like they could've had a few more scenes in between some transitions but definitely not a bad movie.

    I literally saw the movie this morning. The first 20 minutes was dumb and not that funny. But, as soon as the actual plot kicks in, it's gets better and funnier as it goes on. So, all in all, I give it a B, maybe B+.

    I saw this movie with my daughter (16 years old) and we loved it.
    I have not seen a movie of this caliber for this kind of movie for a loong time.
    My only criticism was their marketing team clearly f’ed because we were the only ones in theatre. This movie deserves an audience.
    Still it was great fun because we could talk while watching the movie and this movie becomes kind of a game in itself as one tried to guess what will happen next or certain plot points of the movie.
    The cast is magic together. Even the small parts are well casted.
    Go see this movie.
    If this movie does not make as much as a lazy movie like Grownups 2 - well that is letting Hollywood know just how much good comedy matters.

    Just saw the movie last night and I couldn’t agree more with this review. I didn’t expect much going in but god damn was it funny.
    My one complaint is that they didn’t somehow intertwine the Ed Norton joke with the Fight Club joke. Just a random thought considering all the other awesome movie references.

    I really enjoy your reviews they tend to align with my opions. With that being said, not sure if you do requests but, I would love to hear your thoughts on "true story" starting Jonah Hill and James Franco. It came out in 2015 and I feel like not many people are aware of this film.
