It’s not great like Craig Johnson’s previous feature, The Skeleton Twins, but it’s still very good. Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern are great (duh). Takes a while to pick up, but once it does (I.e. once Laura Dern shows up), it keeps getting better and better. Also, Pepper (and all the other pups in the movie) are cute af.
Let’s just get this out of the way: I loved Game Night. I had an absolute blast watching this and was laughing 90% of the time (the other 10% was spent fawning over Rachel McAdams, but I’ll get to that). Guess what I also love? Monopoly. That’s not really relevant but it needed to be said.
The cast is great. Everyone has atleast one great moment. As much as I love Kyle Chandler, the comedic standout of the film is…
Man, I fucking love this movie. Even after six times watching from start to finish (yes, I’ve counted), this never fails to make me laugh (and cry!). I can only think of a couple other movies (if that) that I’ve seen as many times that have the same effect on me. There’s not much more to say.
When this came out, I tried so many times to convince my girlfriend to see it with me and she’d always say no. We broke up less than a month after its release. Coincidence?
