    No thread for this yet, so here are the first two trailers (trailer 2 just out today). This looks like great fun. :)

    Jason Bateman is in it, so no surprise it looks ****e

    It has quite ensemble cast of tv stars in Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Chelsea Peretti, Jesse Plemons and Kyle Chandler, I'm sold

    I enjoyed this - it had a nice steady pace and I was never bored. I do think the trailers gave away some of the best jokes though (although that's hardly a surprise these days).

    Jesse Plemons stole the show in any scene he was in.

    Some clever camera work really stood out in this (the egg escape scene is very well done).

    Not believeable but funny. Cast is very good. I laughed at the jokes.

    I thought it was good fun. Turn off your brain and laugh away. Definitely better to avoid too many trailers though.

    Also, some Irish representation in there with Sharon Horgan, which is nice and she does a really good job.

    Thoroughly enjoyable and the cast all seem to be having a great time, can't remember the last time Rachel McAdams had this much fun.

    Totally stupid and gets progressively stupider as it goes along but it is really entertaining and the chemistry between all the actors is great.

    Just wish the rest of the movie was as good as the opening 20 minutes and it could've been a classic.

    Still well worth a watch if you like Jason Bateman doing what he does best, or silly comedies in general.

    This is abysmal. Worst film I've seen in a very very long time. Didn't laugh once. Terrible terrible terrible movie.

    It's up there with the hangover part three in terms of how big a turkey it is.

    Did I say terrible?


    1/10

    Funniest film I have seen in a long time Can't remember when I heard an audience laugh so much, clearly enjoying themselves as I was. I had not seen any trailers so had no idea of what was coming next.

    Really enjoyed this tonight, Rachel McAdams is great in this and looks amazing :) definitely a good fun movie to go watch and enjoy yourself

    Fúcking shít film....Should be able to reclaim the entrance cost for shít like this


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,537 ✭✭✭ tunguska


    For the first half hour or so this was really good but then it just fell apart and got progressively worse. Last 20 mins were unbelievably awful, descended into a caper movie that went nowhere. Dont waste your money.

    Bill Magnussen was a stand out in this, as was Jesse Plemons. Good, mindless fun, though I was expecting
    it to be like "The Game" where, the whole thing was a set up. The fact that it wasn't sort of makes it more run of the mill, as I was looking forward to some detailed explanation on how the brother pulled it all off.

    Agreed, the egg chase scene was very well done, I was really looking for the edits.

    Enjoyable but got more tedious as it went on. I'm glad to see Sharon Horgan wasn't short changed in her role like I thought she would be. The dim wit who invited her to Game Night, how would he keep getting invited back? Ha.

    It would have been more fun if they didn't go so OTT in the gangster plot, with
    henchman getting sucked into jet engines and Dexter wanting to cut open Kyle Chandler's guts to get a piece of paper. I mean come on.
    And as much of a shame that they go down that route, what I found worse was the wanting to have a baby storyline. Zzzzzzzzzz.

    Meth Damon was funny in it and plays his part brilliantly. Will Jason Bateman ever not be that guy in films?

    I saw it tonight, and I thought it was very funny
