GAME NIGHT (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì 

Game Night—unique—keeps its audience guessing about its purpose. It’s difficult to see the connections between a couple who should be having children, their obsession with games, why an actual role-playing game is ordered (at the first of the movie, it seems the older brother ordered it and at the end of the movie it appears that the neighbor ordered it) and when it is role playing and when the action is real. The blur between real events and the reality game that has been ordered, during most of the movie works at the obscurity level. The movie leaves many loose ends when it concludes. If you you are going to buy a ticket, read a plotline before buying that ticket to enhance enjoyment of the movie. Know that there is considerable sexual, adult dialogue in this movie that makes it an entertainment piece for adults.

? Yes? No? Maybe?                                                                       

 No. The film’s script seems to have been ‘hurried’ during the writing process and fails to tie up loose ends. Read a plotline before going.
