In an English-language remake of his 1997 German thriller, acclaimed director Michael Haneke (Caché) creates a claustrophobic tale of two deeply disturbed young men who take a family hostage in a vacation home invasion. Produced and starring Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts (21 Grams, The Painted Veil, King Kong), Haneke's harrowing film also features Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction), Michael Pitt (The Village) and more in an exploration of violence in our society and in our entertainment.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Though made with great skill, Funny Games is nevertheless a sadistic exercise in chastising the audience.

Mature, complicated look at movie violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this dark horror/thriller isn't for kids. The plot focuses on a home invasion, and while most of the actual violence occurs off-screen, the results are very visible (bloody wounds; tearful, frightened faces; dead bodies; blood splattered on walls and furniture). Tense scenes include threats of violence, pursuit of a victim through dark hallways, and sexual taunting (which culminates in a woman being forced to strip, though no nudity is shown). A scene in which a woman appears in her bra and panties is decidedly un-erotic. Some language, including several uses of "f--k."
