Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams Prove They’re a Great Comedy Couple in ‘Game Night’
News

Farce is a beast to get right in movies. The fact that Game Night hits the mark more often than it hits a wall is cause for cheering. Hell, if you have Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams to play the game-loving marrieds heading a cast of merry pranksters, you’re already ahead of the game. I wasn’t thrilled that the rowdy Mark Perez script fell into the hands of directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein since they perpetrated the 2015...

‘Annihilation’ Review: Director Alex Garland Transcends Sci-Fi Pulp
News
