Bateman and McAdams star as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. So when Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all part of the game…right? But as the six uber-competitive gamers set out to solve the case and win, they begin to discover that neither this “game”—nor Brooks—are what they seem to be. Over the course of one chaotic night, the friends find themselves increasingly in over their heads as each twist leads to another unexpected turn. With no rules, no points, and no idea who all the players are, this could turn out to be the most fun they’ve ever had…or game over.
Tonight, we're taking game night up a notch.
Someone in this room is going to be taken, and it's gonna be up to you to find them.
It's a murder mystery party.*
Whoever finds the victim, wins the grand prize.
You're not gonna know what's real and what's fake.
Wait a second, you can't just come in here and break the door!
It looks so real!
Don't be asshole!
Help me, please!
Guys, make sure you get a piece of this cheese, it's just...
The first one that follows us get shot!
Okay, roger that, you drive safe.
I've always enjoyed the camaraderie of good friends, competing in games of chance and skills.
Do we follow him?
It seems like it.
Ryan, you go first.
Oh, my God!
It's not a joke.
You people are in real danger.
Is this gun real?
Oh, oh, no, Annie!
Oh, no, bang bang!
Oh, no, no, no!
I hate game night!
Let's just take a little bath.
Oh, it's so much worse.
I have kids at home.
Not with an ass like that, you don't.
Well, thank you.
Oh, no, he died!
This is instructions on how to remove the bullet.
They didn't have rubbing alcohol, so I got you this lovely Chard.†
Good idea, way to pivot.
And then a squeaky toy.
For the pain?
This smarts, huh?
† Chard: Chardonnay.
