Comedy dream teams are no longer just the domain of men. Last year’s “Bad Moms” burst open the doors that were considerably rocked off the hinges by “Bridesmaids,” and this year “Girls Night” and “Bad Moms Christmas” are already on the horizon. Joining them will be another raunchy comedy in “Rough Night.”
Formerly titled “Rock This Body,” the movie brings together Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer and Kate McKinnon for a tale of a bachelorette party that gets out of hand when a male stripper winds up dead. Oops. It’s an interesting premise, and Johansson was able to keep up with her quick-witted castmates.
“Scarlett Johansson is a great actress — really funny,” McKinnon told People. “She improvises really funny stuff and it’s really rare to find the two rolled into one. And it’s such a cool thing to watch her just work. I sort of just sit there and go, ‘Wow, look at that.’ ”
“Rough Night” opens on June 16th.
