Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when Grey, a self-identified technophobe, has his world turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant called Stem.
Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
Six close friends meet each week for a game night involving board games, charades and pop culture trivia quizzes.

However, their marriage is on rocky ground as Annie fears that Max doesn't want to have children.

Ths sound of the blood dripping from Max's arm is heard when he's on the computer. When the dog just starts licking the blood on the carpet you still hear blood dripping, but you cannot see it falling and it definitely won't sound like its falling in a puddle if the dog stands over the only puddle in the room.

This was a very enjoyable comedy. Plenty of jokes hit their mark and the audience loved it from the laughter I heard in the session. To be upfront I some advanced session tickets from the Australian distributor, won in a competition. So we all saw it for free, but if I wanted to see a good comedy this one is worth paying to watch.
The humour is good, nothing too highbrow but you won't find any crass humour here, just good fun throughout the film.
The film does have its silly moments and the twists towards the end stretch believability, but you don't really care as you don't watch this film to critique, but just to enjoy the ride for a few hours. The characters are not deep, but you quickly grow to like them all or feel sorry for them as the film flows on.
Enjoyable, good clean fun with the odd bit of blood, that is even used to humourous effect.
