Genre: Action, Comedy, Crime and Drama
Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein who both worked on Horrible Bosses (2011). When watching this I did feel that Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams were really enjoying themselves. If Rachel McAdams wasn’t in this then it wouldn’t be half as good. It is lovely to see her and she always gives a fantastic performance. It is not a hilarious film but I did find myself laughing quite a few times. To prepare for this film, the cast members had their own “game night” so they could get to know one another. The game they played was Clue and Joking Hazard.
