How did we get so lucky? Us ladies get not just one women letting loose movie this year (GIRLS TRIP), but TWO! Enter ROUGH NIGHT, a female-driven, female written and directed raunch-com that’s going to have us doubled over, crying with laughter in the theater come June 16. Writer-Director Lucia Aniello’s comedy looks like it lands somewhere on spectrum as a cross between WEEKEND AT BERNIES, VERY BAD THINGS and BACHELORETTE. Guaranteed this will be absolutely PERFECT for your GNO parties, ladies.
Peep the trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
In Rough Night, an edgy R-rated comedy, five best friends from college (played by Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, and Zoë Kravitz) reunite 10 years laterfor a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami. Their hard partying takes a hilariously dark turn when they accidentally kill a male stripper. Amidst the craziness of trying to cover it up, they’re ultimately brought closer together when it matters most.
If you’re a huge BROAD CITY fan, this is a MUST NOT MISS film for you. If you like comedies, in general, then this is a MUST NOT MISS for you. Heck, if you just wanna support female filmmakers and diverse voices in the industry, this is a MUST NOT MISS for you!
ROUGH NIGHT opens on June 16.
