48% of critics liked this film.
Chatting with dozens of females coming out of the cinema for this film at the Carlton Cinemas on Thursday June 22nd, I found out that out of 26 people – everyone LOVED the film.
Said one female watcher (late 20s, black, female):
“It’s about time we got the female version of THE HANGOVER. Critics liked that film but didn’t like this? We still have a long way to go!”
Scarlett Johansson works overtime to salvage this dismal Bridesmaids knockoff, heavily informed by The Hangover and even Weekend at Bernie’s.
Orchestrating a gender reversal on this concept isn’t especially liberating; you might actually get more laughs out of the cutaways to the lame bachelor party of Jess’s fiancé, where sensitive men get “wild” at their private wine tasting.
Some of the best jokes are belly busters. My favorite involves a slow car and a speed bump.
Formulaic feminism makes for a rough watch in this chick retread of The Hangover. For this we got liberated?
This should have been funnier. Rough Night is a comedy with a great female cast, but the women were given nothing to do.
The women in Rough Night are terrific company. They never wear out their welcome. Too bad you can’t say the same for the movie.
