Game Night (15)

Comedy, Crime, Mystery

A group of friends who meet regularly for game nights find themselves trying to solve a murder mystery.

The critical consensus

With its clever, whip-smart script and enthusiastic ensemble cast firing on all cylinders, crime comedy filmmakers Jonathan Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein score big with Game Night.

For most of its duration, Game Night is a hoot, yet over-competitiveness on the filmmakers' part is ultimately their undoing.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 26/02/2018

Directing team John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are shameless in the glee with which they use one volte-face after another to confuse the audience. For all the charm of the performances, the film eventually spirals away into utter meaninglessness and you yearn for the games to end.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 28/02/2018

Silly, but has the decency to be very fun at the same time.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 28/02/2018

So tightly written, performed and packed with jokes, it’s easy enough to forgive its somewhat indulgent finale.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 02/03/2018

A better-than-expected comedy, directed with irreverence and flair by the future Flash guys.
