Fun, light diversion, “Rough Night” is the type of comedy you watch with some good friends either before going out or while recovering from it. Scarlett Johansson leads a cast of hilarious comedic talent across the board and seems to be rejoicing an opportunity to take on an undemanding role, and while most of the jokes land, there just seems to be something missing from the finished product. Maybe it’s that too much happens too fast and the movie never seems to be able to relax and let its jokes take center stage, but either way, the cast makes up for the weaker moments. Watch for hilarious cameos by Demi Moore and Ty Burrell as over-sexed neighbors.
Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
