“New Girl” actor Lamorne Morris has a very good reason for movie lovers to turn out for his new comedy “Game Night” this weekend.

“It’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen on screen, and besides, you will already have seen ‘Black Panther’ the week before,” Morris told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell. “So you may as well go see this one afterwards.”

Morris also hinted that the off-camera high jinks of the cast — which includes Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams and Michael C. Hall — was almost as wild as what appeared on screen.

“Billy Magnussen, he’s a wild one,” Morris noted. “It’s almost like we could have filmed our regular game nights and that would have been a movie in itself.”

“Game Night,” directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (“Vacation”), follows a group of couples who gather for their regularly planned game night when something goes horribly wrong. Mark Perez wrote the script.

TheWrap’s Alonso Duralde gave “Game Night” a positive review, writing that the film is “fast and funny, filled with memorable characters, and able to balance slapstick and violence without spilling too far in either direction.”
