GAME NIGHT (MA15+)

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - EYE | MOVIES -

A BLAST FROM THE PAS­TIME, US, 97 MIN An er­ratic Amer­i­can com­edy that bur­dens it­self with the tough task of be­ing edgy and en­dear­ing at the same time. When it gets this tricky combo right, the movie can land a laugh as big as the best of them. When it bun­gles the blend, there is noth­ing but the sound of crick­ets. Af­ter a slow start, the hits do start out­num­ber­ing the misses, par­tic­u­larly once a game-play­ing group of friends de­cide to mix things up by stag­ing an “in­ter­ac­tive mur­der mys­tery ex­pe­ri­ence”. So, what could pos­si­bly go wrong? Aside from, like, ev­ery­thing? Stars Jason Bate­man, Rachel McA­dams.
