The first reviews for “Game Night” are getting released, with only a few more days until the movie will be released nationwide in the United States. The first reviews are very promising and positive thus far. The movie currently holds a 89% rating at Rotten Tomatoes (with 18 reviews) and a 74 score at Meta Critics (with 9 reviews). We will round-up the reviews in this post and we will – as always – focus on the Rachel-centered excerpts. Rachel gets praised for her comedic skills and timing.
“And McAdams, whose comedic skills have gone unsung for way too long, is dizzy fun. The whole movie is, actually, even if it pretty much evaporates on impact — a kooky, vicarious loop of Mad Libs meets Cards Against Humanity, where whoever’s holding the popcorn last wins.”
–Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“But it’s McAdams that often shines the brightest here. The “Mean Girls” star has appeared in the odd comedy since Tina Fey‘s cultural phenomenon, but even the highlights like “Midnight in Paris” and “About Time,” haven’t fully played to her comedy skills. Thankfully, “Game Night” is a great showcase for her underused and undervalued comedic talents, which will hopefully see the actress given more opportunities to play these kinds of notes. ”
–Will Ashton, The Playlist
