Storyline

Married competitive gamer couple Max and Annie are trying to have a child, but their attempts are unsuccessful due to Max's stress surrounding his feelings of inadequacy when compared to his successful, attractive brother Brooks. During Max and Annie's routine weekend game night with their friends Ryan, and married couple Kevin and Michelle, Brooks shows up Max by arriving in a Corvette Stingray (Max's dream car) and sharing an embarrassing childhood story about Max. Brooks offers to host the next game night at a house he's renting while he's in town. Meanwhile, Max and Annie are trying to keep their game nights secret from their neighbor Gary, an awkward police officer after his divorce from their friend Debbie..

Fun film
19 October 2018 | by gbill-74877See all my reviews

A fun and fast-paced movie that blends genres, with elements of comedy, action, and romance. The cast is strong, led by Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, and with a memorable performance from Jesse Plemons, who plays a creepy divorced cop. There are lots of little sub-plots that are kept up throughout the film, on top of its plot twists and outrageous moments, and it's entertaining from start to finish.
