‘Rough Night’ Is The Female Version Of ‘The Hangover’ The World Needs, Complete With Cocaine And Dead Strippers

by 1 year ago

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 TrilogyThe 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.
