If you don’t watch Broad City, we highly recommend you stop whatever you’re currently binging and go watch all of it. The series tackles serious issues with unparalleled hilarity and should be mandatory viewing for any interested in comedy. The track record of Broad City makes us extremely excited for the release of Rough Night, which comes from the minds of writers Lucia Aniello (who also directs) and Paul W. Downs.
The movie follows Jess (Scarlett Johansson) as her friends throw her a bachelorette party in Miami. These friends are played by Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoë Kravitz, and Kate McKinnon, a utterly fantastic group of actresses. There’s drinking and drugs involved, but the night really goes off the rails when Bell’s character accidentally kills the male stripper hired for Jess. What follows is a comedic joyride as the still heavily-impaired women attempt to deal with the crime while still salvaging the party. The cast appears to be excellently balanced as well, with each woman receiving a moment to shine in the trailer. You can watch the full red band trailer right here:
Rough Night is the feature film directorial debut for Aniello. You can catch the comedy in theaters on June 16.
