Story: Comedy thriller directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein in which the story follows a couple, Max and Annie (Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams), whose weekly couples game night gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks (Kyle Chandler), arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. When Brooks gets kidnapped, it’s all supposed to be part of the game.
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.
