Game Night

Silly & implausible fun about a couple and their friends who hyper-competitively play board games, and a oneupmanship prank that goes awry turning it into high adventure. Jason Bateman’s everyman is played with an almost Leslie Nielsen degree of straight-down-the-lineness inviting the massive amount of suspension of disbelief that this film needs for the story to get going.  I quite enjoyed it though. 👍
