“Rough Night” (2017)

Making a loose remake of Very Bad Things isn’t a bad idea at all. And while this film is certainly an improvement over the original, and was on the right track, it’s still not a good film. The film’s third act reveal undoes a lot of the goodwill it had set-up before by chickening out of its premise and opting to take the easy and generic way out. The film’s second act is easily the best part of the film, as there are some solid laughs and set-pieces, mostly courtesy of Kate McKinnon’s performance, but the first and third acts are mostly just bad. This could’ve been so much better, but at least it’s not as bad as the original.
