There is a definite perception problem when it comes to female characters in Hollywood, mostly because they are being written by men on most counts. Shows like “Broad City” and “Girls” help break that pattern by showing women in their truest forms – as human beings. Keeping this spirit in mind, Scarlett Johansson’s new film “Rough Night” looks to take things to the next level for womankind in a bizarre and hilarious way.

No time for a hangover

Rough Night” comes from the brilliant minds of Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, the writers of the hit Comedy Central show “Broad City." The duo will not only be writing the script for the film, but Aniello is also set to make her directorial debut with this feature.

The cast boasts of an impressive line-up of television and film stars including the central five characters played by Scarlett Johansson, Ilana Glazer, Jillian Bell, Kate McKinnon and Zoe Kravitz.

The central plot of the film revolves around five best friends who are uniting after a long period in order to celebrate one of their own finally tying the knot. In order to make the most of their bachelorette party, the girls seriously decide to let loose with their inhibitions and run wild in a drunken, drug-induced state.

Unfortunately for the group, the night takes a turn for the worse when one of them ends up accidently killing a male stripper. The rest of the movie revolves around the girls’ fumbling attempts to keep themselves from going to prison.

What to expect

The story seems like fairly boilerplate stuff when it comes to screw-ball comedies. Sure, killing a male stripper seems a bit extreme, but testing the women in the midst of such an extreme situation seems to be the point of the plot. What comes across almost immediately though from the trailer is the chemistry shared by the five women.

The group is a healthy mixture of varied personalities, with each actress specializing in one particular type of character during the course of their careers. Watching this diverse group of talented actors work together under an insane premise should definitely make this movie worth watching, and "Rough Night" is already being touted as one of the most anticipated comedies of the year.
