    Skilled Actresses Shine In A Crude Dud

    Jack Benny wrote that Marilyn Monroe had a natural understanding of how to do comedy. She appeared on his TV show in a sketch promoting "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes". Monroe knew how to play a funny scene absolutely straight, gleaning more laughs than if she'd employed a wink and a smile. Scarlett Johansson grasps that same wisdom. Since Woody Allen's "Scoop" she's demonstrated the same high craft at comedy that she's shown in drama and action roles. She's a treat to watch on the screen in anything. Here she stands a head and a shoulder above a very well-talented supporting cast of women who know how to milk farce. Unfortunately, their grace and skill get undermined by an idiot-level script written by the director and male lead. I strongly suspect that the knowledgeable Lucia Aniello secured funding for a female ensemble film on the condition that it deliver a level of raunch equal to or greater than male-oriented crudities. In the days since "Putney Swope" and "Animal House", those have gotten gross and grosser. When Clare Boothe Luce put the all-female "The Women" on stage, she cleverly gave us peeks at sacred female areas -- the dress shop fitting room, the manicurist's niche, the ladies' health gym, the Reno wives' dude ranch, the posh powder room in a ritz club. Aniello takes us on a spectacular failure of a bachelorette party. The software guarding these reviews will not permit the rude words that fill the raw dialogue enlivening most of "Rough Night". The adept actresses tackle their tasks with aplomb, delivering truly good performances under the handicap of lackwit lines. That's the glory of the movie. When Alfred Hitchcock undertook "The Trouble With Harry" he and screenwriter John Michael Hayes slyly contrived a great deal of black comedy based around inappropriate reactions to a fresh cadaver in the woods. Humor about how to dispose of an inconvenient body dates back at least to a very funny sequence in "The Arabian Nights" collection of Middle Eastern tales. The 2000 TV two-parter from Hallmark handles the material adeptly. That well of mirth went dry by the time of "Rough Night", which offers an accidental corpse for our plucky team to wrangle. Johansson rises to the challenge of appearing interesting in even witless circumstances. Her co-stars second her valiantly. Demi Moore has proven her acting chops and now can graciously offer herself in cameo roles to help struggling filmmakers. She made a heartfelt appearance in "Margin Call". Here she brings her best to the part of a polymorphous perverse neighbor. The "Rougher Morning Edition" disc lards on extras giving us more views of the killer cast at work and play. However, watching gifted people attempt to raise roses from horsepuck does not enhance the base material they're struggling with.

    I had a lot of hopes to laugh a lot, but I laughed so hard at a deleted scene over the movie itself. The deleted scene where the news interviews them after SPOILER........ stopping the guys who robbed a store and was hunting for their friend who was the so called stripper. They should have left that in, but overall, it was just not that funny. You may crack a smile here and there, but the end result was just, meh...

    I wanted to see this movie since I saw the trailer for it on television. Did not get to see it in theaters so I was happy to see that the store had it when my Husband and I were at the West Lebanon, NH store. This movie definitely gets added to my list of chaotic movies. But very entertaining at the same time. Totally worth the money. Everyone did a great job in this movie. I really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it !!

    Rough Night isn't a total write off. There are enough funny lines and a subplot (involving Jess's fiancé who the movie allows to get into REALLY ridiculous shenanigans) to be watchable. Just wish that the script would have let the ladies turn loose too.

    I got this as part of a 3-$20 offer Best Buy was running on Sony titles. It is definitely full of funny women and good actresses. It's a joy for a woman's dark comedy fan, and plenty for the fellas to like on screen too.

    She can't save this stinker of a comedy(?). 101 minutes without a single laugh -- no kidding. My wife, much smarter than I am, gave up after about 40 minutes. Most of the gags have been used in other films. I've seen slasher films that were funnier.

    The movie premise is not really new and it draws on prior movie humor. There are a number of chances for it to be funnier than it actually turns out. That’s said if you go in with low expectations it can be an okay movie
