Rough Night (2018)

In some ways, this is likeĀ The Hangover with ladies. Scarlett Johansson plays the main lady, Jess, who is being thrown a massive bachelorette party in Miami with 4 college friends. Things go a little off the rails when a male stripper is accidentally killed in front of the girls.

Sometimes, these kinds of raunchy comedies can be a lot of fun. Other times, the idea falls flat and there aren’t any good jokes to fall back on. This one is kind of middle-of-the-road. It was mostly fun with some inventive jokes surrounding the side plot with Jess’ groom-to-be, Peter (Paul W. Downs). I had more fun with the fear-turned-road-trip of the Peter character than the murder-turned-cover-up high jinks of the main plot.

Was it funny enough? Yeah.
