Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples Game Night gets kicked up a notch when Max's charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So, when Brooks gets kidnapped, it's all part of the game...right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this "game"— nor Brooks—are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they've ever had...or game over.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With a talented cast turned loose on a loaded premise -- and a sharp script loaded with dark comedy and unexpected twists -- Game Night might be more fun than the real thing.

Common Sense Says
Over-the-top comedy has strong language, bloody violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Game Night is a good-natured, over-the-top comedy about a murder mystery party that goes very wrong. There's a lot of violence; most of it is played for laughs, but things can get really bloody. Characters use guns, and there's a fight club in which rich people pay poor people to fight each other. One person is hit by a car, someone gets knifed, and a man gets sucked into a jet engine and puréed. Again, all of this is played for laughs, so viewers who can differentiate between comic violence and, say, Scorsese violence can probably handle it. There's also frequent strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "ass," etc.) and some sexual content, including talk about sex acts and fertility treatments and references to a character trying to perform oral sex on himself. Other scenes show kissing/groping, as well as a bit of drinking. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams co-star.
