Hey guys, guess who got exclusive screening passes for Rough Night two days before it’s official release? This girl!
So you know I had to come straight to the blog and share all the juicy details with my misses. And while movie critics rarely know what the hell they are talking about, I am no movie critic. I won’t steer you wrong.
For those of you who haven’t seen the trailer yet and have no idea what I am talking about, just imagine meeting up with your five besties from college (Scarlett Johansson, Jillian Bell, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, Kate McKinnon) 10 years later for the littest bachelorette weekend in MI-yayo. Then imagine one of your friends kills a stripper and you have to work together to cover it up or you all could go down for manslaughter. Pretty crazy, eh?
With already-high ticket prices on the rise, it can be hard to decide which movies are actually worth seeing in theatres, but just for the record, this is not one of those movies where all the funny moments are shown in the previews and now you’re stuck sitting in a dark room wasting more than an hour of your life, wishing for your money back. And while I will admit this scenario might not be funny in real life, it is pretty hilarious to watch it play out on the big screen. I literally laughed from beginning to end. And not those, “oh, that was kind of funny,” little giggles either. I’m talking about leaning over on the person next to you cause y’all are both laughing so hard you can barely keep your eyes open. It was that funny.
I definitely picked up on some Hangover vibes as the storyline progressed, but it was cool to see women as the focus. With plenty of cocaine to share, old swinger neighbors, and a deep “sea of dick,” this movie definitely earned its R rating. Alice and Pip make every scene they’re in that much more outrageous, and Peter, the groom-to-be, had me cracking up. As stressed as I am juggling these writing/modeling projects, Lord knows I needed that laugh. Needless to say, this is probably the only rough night I wouldn’t mind reliving.
So if you are feeling a little stressed out right now (like me) or if you just want to get together with your girls for a fun night out this weekend, Rough Night is a must-see summer movie. If I had to rate it, I’d give it a 4/5.
Peep the trailer below before it comes out tomorrow!
