Fifth about The Seventh

Game Night (2018)

Game Night: comedies can, at times, be so hilarious that the unlikely and preposterous story becomes irrelevant. Such is the case of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein’s film: it’s a smart concept, which relies often on coincidences and impossibilities, but the laughs are coming too often and too powerful for it to matter. The creative team is smart enough to avoid toilet humor, to give the film some heart and to spread the love between 3 couples, decisions that elevate the entertainment value. Rachel McAdams (who is girl-next-door lovely) and Jason Bateman have impeccable comic timing and good chemistry; Jesse Plemons is great displaying his character awkwardness and weirdness; Kyle Chandler is also fine; the other 2 couples are also funny. For the most part, the film is visually simple, but it gets inventive at times, emulating the visual of games of various types.
