Plus: The Hitman's Bodyguard

Rough Night is nothing particularly groundbreaking. Five female friends accidentally kill a stripper on a bachelorette party and what ensues is yet another Bridesmaids-esque, gender-reversed The Hangover to join the slew of films – see Bad Moms and Girls Trip also in cinemas now – patronisingly pointing out that girls can behave badly too. Scarlett Johansson plays the bride to a troupe of hot comedy property including Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City). The film’s strength firmly lies in the movie’s cast and their delivery of the one-liners and absurd situations.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a ridiculous concept that plays into the tropes of both hitmen and bodyguard movies. Again the film’s strength comes from its cast’s ability to turn ludicrous situations into hilarious moments as Ryan Reynolds plays an elite bodyguard sent to deliver a fugitive hitman in the form of Samuel L Jackson. With plenty of laughs, action, car chases and a flippant use of one of Samuel L’s favourite swears, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is more fun than the title may suggest.
