Max and Annie’s weekly game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party — complete with fake thugs and federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all supposed to be part of the game. As the competitors set out to solve the case, they start to learn that neither the game nor Brooks are what they seem to be. The friends soon find themselves in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn over the course of one chaotic night.
GAME NIGHT is so far the best comedy of the year, and up there even in the past few years. It’s unique, entertaining, and a great blend of characters and story lines all within a plot for the film. A great ensemble cast as well. The film did well at the box office so there is chance for a sequel and the Director was already on record having slightly mentioned that in the essence of the talk of a sequel since it has done well. It may be very hard to follow this up though, but if they do then we’re talking a great new franchise ahead of us. Let your mind go wild as you could even have a sequel with an entirely different cast as so long as the script is good. They hey, bring on GAME NIGHT! And where is our ULTRA HD Blu-ray?

GAME NIGHT looks amazing on Blu-ray and once again just wish we could have gotten this in Ultra HD Blu-ray. The best comedy of 2018 so far and so very unique and expertly done.
GAME NIGHT arrives on blu-ray with an exceptional DTS HD Master audio 5.1 track. While the track does the film well and the fronts and center channel bare most the load you are left to wonder how it would sound in 7.1 or Atmos. Lots of loud enough and dynamic scenes that likely could have benefited.
The Special features are slim pickings on this one, but I hope we see more in the future from this hidden gem of a comedy.
