It seems like lately the only movies I get excited about seeing are your typical period costume dramas and whatever is the latest entry in the ever-expanding marvel universe, with one DC exception.
Oh, why hello Aquaman
I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw a trailer for a run-of-the-mill comedy that actually looked worth seeing. Even when I’ve been duped into running off to the theater by a sufficiently funny trailer, the movie never fulfills its end of the bargain. I just want to laugh out loud in a theater, dammit! When I clicked on the latest Rough Night trailer this weekend, however, I gotta say I’m feeling cautiously optimistic about this one.
Not entirely sure what the deal is with Kate McKinnion’s inexplicable Aussie accent, but I’m willing to overlook it.
Rough Night is a bachelorette party gone wrong tale, starting Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer and Jillian Bell. Four girlfriends hit Miami for a night full of tacky sashes, dick headbands and coke – but wind up accidentally murdering a male stripper. So basically, if you took Very Bad Things and Weekend at Bernies, threw them in a millennial blender and poured it over some funny lady ice you get Rough Night
1. Jillian Bell is the shit. She single-handedly saved two pretty crap movies that I normally wouldn’t even have considered watching again (22 Jump Street and The Night Before). An earlier trailer features her essentially just making an unintelligible noise, a la “hhuuuhh”, and it was absolutely the funniest thing about that trailer.
2. It’s written and directed by the people behind Broad City. Lucia Aniello wrote and directed this movie, sharing writing credits with Paul W. Downs (Trey!). Broad City is genius TV. And Ilana is in this too!
3. I’m a sucker for bachelorette/bachelor party movies. I think it’s because I’ve never actually been to one that was not a complete disaster. My own was just a ball of abysmal sadness – dinner at a ‘fancy’ restaurant where I could only eat a baked potato and salad because nobody bothered to check if they had any vegetarian options, going to a ‘club’ that contained about 30 total patrons, getting hit on by a guy wearing a toupee and then having everyone in my party ditch out, leaving just me and my sister at the hotel. My sister-in-law’s bachelorette was something straight out of a Real Housewives episode. Living vicariously through movies is the cheapest form of therapy, ladies and gentlemen.
4. An Alternate Ending: I’ve always wished that there was an alternate ending version of Bridesmaids where they actually made it to Vegas. I’m holding out hope that this movie could be that alternate ending. Be that alternate ending, Rough Night! Please.
If only Stove had been more chill, they would have made it to their destination.
5. The Music: I’m super hopeful that this movie looks like I’ll be able to pick up some new songs for my daydream playlist. You know, the one you listen to when you’re in the car alone imagining you’re the sexiest bitch in the club and you’re young and awesome and always say cool shit.
Honestly though, this world has been such a fucking calamity lately that it would be really nice to just sit in the dark, watch something funny and eat candy. And if this all-female reboot of a mildly shitty 90s dark comedy (and 80s goof-fest with the adorable Andrew McCarthy) can show all the internet limp dicks that yes, women are funny – then that’s even better. Fingers crossed, y’all!

Although, it doesn’t stop her from giving fake Emmy acceptance speeches after two glasses of wine. She can usually be found in her local coffee shop creating elaborate backstories for complete strangers while she should be working.
