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 fianc�, 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.
The movie falls apart, and flounders to the end, because it doesn't know what its funny is supposed to be.
"Rough Night" is a dismal, excruciating experience, a tired retread of raunchy comedy tropes that can't be bothered to come up with any funny or original bits.
As Hangover-style dumb entertainments go, it's certainly good enough. Which isn't to say it's anything close to what women want.
Whenever the story goes off the rails, there's always someone funny there to will it back into a humorous place.
