Game Night | 2018 | R | - 3.6.6

After gathering for a game night for years one member of the super-competitive group injects some excitement into the night with a mock-kidnapping. The idea is that the first participant to find the fake victim will win; except, it may all be real and real lives are at stake. With Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Kyle Chandler, Sharon Horgan, Billy Magnussen, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Michael C. Hall and Danny Huston. Directed by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man and a woman kiss passionately in a train car and they fall to the floor holding each other. A man and a woman kiss after he proposes and she accepts. A husband and his wife hug and kiss.
 A husband and his wife discuss their trouble conceiving with their doctor, including discussions of semen and sperm motility as well as masturbation. A man talks about another man having had a rib removed so that he could bend over far enough to reach his genitals with his mouth; the man then describes his younger brother tying himself up to try the same thing and that he was found naked and tied up by his mother. A husband becomes jealous thinking that his wife had a sexual relationship before they got married and he asks her repeated questions about what happened; she eventually shares what happened one evening including going to a club with a man, where they drank and danced and went back to his apartment afterward (sex is implied). A husband and his wife talk about a time when they were taking a break in their relationship (before marriage) and that he was with another woman who manually stimulated him. A man says to his date, "I usually bring girls that I want to sleep with..."
 Women wear low-cut dresses that reveal cleavage in a few scenes. Two shirtless men are shown and we see bare shoulders, chests, abdomens and backs as they fight. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals her bare back. A man's lower back is shown when his pants dip down and a woman's bare lower back is seen when her pants dip downward.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A woman with a gun shoots it into the ceiling and then drops it when is discharges and it discharges again, hitting a man in the arm (we see a bloody bullet hole oozing blood and he yells). Two men shoot at a police officer who shoots them both (we see blood spurt when they are struck and they fall to the ground motionless). A police officer is shot in the chest (we see blood on his chest and in his mouth. A police officer is shot in the shoulder (we see blood as he collapses). A man with a gun drops into a plane and another man with a knife throws the knife into the gunman's arm (we see it stick). Two men and a woman run away as they are shot at; they speed away in a car and are chased and shot at again. Several men hold several other people at gunpoint and threaten to kill them.
 A man is sucked into a jet engine and we see blood spray out of the back of the engine. A woman hits a man in the head with a fire extinguisher knocking him out. A woman drops a fire extinguisher on a man's head knocking him out. Two men wearing masks enter a house with guns drawn and threaten people inside; one man fights with the two gunmen and they break items, slam into a mirror shattering it, one is struck with a pan, two men throw fragile things at each other in a kitchen, one man wraps a towel around another man's neck and eventually he is bound and duct tape is placed over his mouth as he is dragged out of the house. A man breaks a house door down and punches a man inside the house in the face (he falls unconscious and remains so for a long time but we see him later with a bruised eye). A man and a woman hear a noise outside their house and a woman climbs in through the window, followed by a man (they are expected). A man kicks an unconscious man in the side a few times.
 Two shirtless men (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details) punch each other while surrounded by people watching and cheering (it's a fight club); one man has blood on his face and chest. A man jumps out of a moving car and rolls on the ground (we do not see injuries). A man climbs a tower of furniture to reach a sunroof and falls over crashing into a door (he is unharmed). Three men are shown tied up and lying on a bar floor while a woman with a gun dances around them.
 A woman waves a hand gun around in a few scenes and sings into it like a microphone, not realizing that it is real. A man loads a handgun in a car in a couple of scenes. A man carries a large kitchen knife and nearly runs into another man. A man steals an expensive item from a safe and is chased through a house by the owner's guards; he throws the item back and forth to other people as they try to leave the house. A man tackles another man and they crash onto a glass topped table (it does not break).
 A car crashes into a plane's landing gear and the plane drags its nose on the runway causing sparks.
 A man tells another man, "Hold still while I cut your stomach open." A trivia game in a bar was titled, "Trivia Death Battle." There are several references to "fight clubs" where rich people pay poor people to fight and the rich people bet on them. A reference is made to Chlamydia and to pubic dermatitis.
 A woman uses a pocket knife to cut a man's arm to try to remove a bullet (we see a long cut and blood. A woman pours wine on a man's wounded arm and he bites down on a dog's squeaky toy making a sad slow squeak. A dog licks a man on the nose. A man tries to touch a woman's lip and mouth and she snaps at his hand (we hear a crunch). A man's arm wound drips blood onto a carpet, and then onto a white dog and when the man tries to clean it up, it just gets worse eventually leading to the dog shaking and spraying blood all around a room.
 A man and then another man and a woman both gag several times from the sight of blood on a man's arm (neither vomits). A man spits out a blood capsule (we see red goo in his mouth).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
