'Game Night' Review
“Hollywood Game Night”, which debuted in 2013, is the fun NBC competition show, hosted by the always entertaining Jane Lynch. “Game Night”, the new Hollywood comedy, is neither fun nor entertaining. The minute you buy a ticket to this misguided misadventure, you’ve already lost.
‘Game Night’ Review
If you want to look back at board game adaptations for films, they don't work and why we have a lack of them. Battleship (2012) was a lame duck that seemly wasn't right from the start. A supposed Candyland film with Adam Sandler has been in development hell for sometime filled with lawsuits (yes, that bad). And the only board game film that was remotely successful was Clue and you have to go back to 1985 for that. But let's remember, they are films based on board games and really how do you get a story out of it? Game Night is New Line's latest comedy that puts a new spin on a gaming adaptation that channels something like Date Night (2010) to make something special.
