Rough Night

Scarlett Johansson works overtime to salvage this dismal Bridesmaids knockoff, heavily informed by The Hangover and even Weekend at Bernie's. Her character, a young candidate for state senator, takes off with four gal pals for a bachelorette weekend in Miami before her marriage, and they wind up having to dispose of a dead male stripper. If the genders were reversed, this would be condemned as misogynist, and it isn't any funnier with the women in control of the situation. Kate McKinnon makes the most of her second-banana role as the bride's old Australian friend, and Jillian Bell plays the doofus of the group; Zoë Kravitz and Ilana Glazer barely register, except for the fact that their characters are former lovers. Lucia Aniello directed a script she cowrote with Paul W. Downs; with Demi Moore and Dean Winters.
