‘Rough Night’ Is The Female Version Of ‘The Hangover’ The World Needs, Complete With Cocaine And Dead Strippers
When Bridesmaids came out in 2011, the instant pop culture comparison for the movie was to The Hangover. But let’s be real — Bridesmaids, while excellent, is kind of a rom-com, finding-oneself-in-your-30s flick and doesn’t have isn’t nearly the amount of bachelor/bachelorette debauchery The Hangover Trilogy. The Hangover was always just a convenient, timely point of reference for a raunchy comedy with an all-female cast.
Now we have one.
Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, and Zoë Kravitz all star in Rough Night, a hard-R comedy directed by Lucia Aniello, the creator of Comedy Central’s Broad City. It’s a black comedy a la 1998’s Very Bad Things about a bachelorette party gone wrong, right down to penis hats and copious cocaine references and a dead stripper that involves a phone call to someone’s lawyer uncle.
Hits theaters on June 16. Honestly, can’t freakin’ wait.
