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.

Scarlett Johansson works overtime to salvage this dismal Bridesmaids knockoff, heavily informed by The Hangover and even Weekend at Bernie's.

Formulaic feminism makes for a rough watch in this chick retread of The Hangover. For this we got liberated?

It mixes up a libation of female friendships, healthy masculinity, and subversive humor - then chases it with a shot of heart to balance out the debauchery.

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 fiancť, where sensitive men get "wild" at their private wine tasting.

This should have been funnier. Rough Night is a comedy with a great female cast, but the women were given nothing to do.

An accumulation of clumsiness and jokes... [Full review in Spanish]

Some of the best jokes are belly busters. My favorite involves a slow car and a speed bump.

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 New Paper (Singapore)

The plot is not only predictable but is also a recycled version of Weekend At Bernie's (1989) and The Hangover (2009).

Why do knockoffs get a bad name? Because they don't even come close to the originals, yah? This stoner derived steal steals liberally from Bridemaids, The… More

It's The Hangover for women, set in one location. If you were to take the film Bridesmaids, strip it down of any likeable characters or reason to like the… More

The Australian accent is one that is very hard to nail down, I know that. But getting it wrong is just so bloody aggravating. Simple solutions: A) If the… More

Sure the storyline is predictable and all over the place but it keeps you laughing throughout and that's all I needed!

This is the female companion piece to Very bad things, I liked that film compared to this slapstick version. I'm a little annoyed they cast an American in… More
