Rough Night (2017)
Critic Consensus: Rough Night's gifted stars are certainly good for some laughs, but their talents aren't properly utilized in a scattered comedy that suffers from too many missed opportunities.

Critic Reviews for Rough Night
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.
Audience Reviews for Rough Night
Rough Night focuses more on the comedy than on the story. It isn't safe to say that story is more important than comedy, but in a genre that is in the comedy section, a story is arguably needed. Basic instructions of a movie is to make a story that at least feels like a great ride on a roller coaster. In this case, they failed to give much to the story by giving the comedy more than expected. Great on paper, terrible on screen.
