rough night

Aspiring state senator Jess (Scarlett Johansson) agrees to join a handful of her old college friends for one last decadent blast in Miami before tying the knot. The challenge will be to get through the debauchery of the bachelorette blowout planned by old pal Alice (Jillian Bell) without tarnishing her public image in advance of the vote. Some tension between the chubby Alice and Jess’s new Australian buddy Pippa (Kate McKinnon) notwithstanding, the getaway seems to be going well enough until the accidental death of a stripper (Ryan Cooper), which has the women scrambling to dispose of the body before their lives – and, of course, Jess’s electoral prospects – are ruined forever. Rough Night is not exactly bad in the way that being bent over a toilet vomiting is bad, for example; but it is rather bad in the sense that the feeling of having squandered an evening is arguably worse.

[WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS]

3 out of 5 stars. Ideological Content Analysis indicates that Rough Night is:

6. Green, with Al Gore receiving an endorsement.

5. Pro-gay, with Ilana Glazer appearing as token lesbian buddy Frankie. A black transvestite DJ also contributes to the movie’s festive atmosphere.

4. Activism-ambivalent. Frankie participates in a protest of government surveillance, but her idealism is characterized as, at best, a side-effect of the idleness of the unemployed. Hers is a loser’s pastime, a dismissive assessment reinforced when she later announces her resolution to take a “protest dump”.

3. Pro-miscegenation – and, honestly, it’s the rare Hollywood product these days that doesn’t fall into this category in one way or another. This time, it’s mystery meat lesbos.

2. Feminist/pro-slut, with Alice looking forward to “swimmin’ in dick”. Alice’s assortment of sex novelties – penis glasses and the like – is supposed to be funny, but the whole hedonistic ethos unintentionally bores and comes across as stale in this film, which surely represents peak slut and the high-water mark for blasé depravity in western civilization. Blair (Zoe Kravitz) experiences a revelatory orgasm when, as part of a plan to steal a surveillance video, she participates in a threesome with swinger Demi Moore and her husband. The consequences of promiscuity are, moreover, trivialized when one of Blair’s friends reassures her, “Whatever. We all have HPV.” Anyone, the screenplay suggests, who has had sex after 1991 has probably contracted HPV – so what’s the point of being careful, right? The stripper dies immediately after having called Jess a slut, the viewer having the impression that his death is a form of instant karma.

1.Pro-drug. In a flashback sequence to Jess’s college days, she wears a costume referencing marijuana culture. Frankie, complimented on her scent, replies that she has a pound of weed in her bra. Elsewhere, the movie promotes abuse of prescription drugs like the tranquilizer Xanax (“Oh, God, that was good”). Perhaps most disturbingly, Rough Night joins the ranks of Ted, Trainwreck, White Girl, and Office Christmas Party in rehabilitating recreational cocaine use. Coke, in Rough Night, facilitates the bonding of a girls’ night out: “It would mean so much to me if we could do a little bit of cocaine together,” Alice pleads. The filmmakers could point to the fact that Alice is under the influence of cocaine when she accidentally kills the stripper – but her sexual recklessness turns out to have been serendipitous when the stripper is revealed to have been a dangerous criminal.

Gwyneth Paltrow in a scene from Contagion (2011)

Once again – the occasion this time being the manufactured crisis surrounding the Rockefeller-patented Zika virus – the mainstream press furnishes readers with an example of how Hollywood perception management furthers the purposes of the technocratic planners and prostitutes and the sado-corporate puppet masters retaining their services. “Americans Want Congress to Dedicate Funds to Fight Zika,” declares USA Today’s Susan Page in an article syndicated in newspapers across the country:

“It does scare me,” said Carol Fisher, 56, a nurse from Teaneck, N.J., who was among those called in the poll. “It has the potential to blow up in a worldwide problem with the way people travel. The idea of containing this to a neighborhood in Miami is just ridiculous. It’s almost like that movie Contagion, where it keeps going and going and going.” (The 2011 medical thriller tracked a mysterious and deadly disease that spread worldwide after a Minnesota woman returned from a business trip to Hong Kong.)1

Note that the article quotes a nurse, who, however, resorts to evoking in readers’ imaginations a movie’s scenes of bio-horror rather than actual scientific evidence. The film features a scene of opulent hedonist Gwyneth Paltrow’s skull being sawed open for an autopsy. Are the remainder of the nation’s craniums slated for airing as well? Perhaps in pursuit of just such an end, Page’s panic-mongering USA Today attention-grabber continues:

Three in 10 Americans, including 36% of those who live in the South, the most affected region, say concern about Zika has affected travel or other plans by themselves or family members.

Both Democrats and Republicans were inclined to back additional funding to combat Zika.2

James Spounias, a journalist and skeptic of the medical establishment, wonders if the cure America’s technocrats prescribe for Zika might not be more deleterious than the virus itself:

On Aug. 4, Miami officials ordered the spraying of naled, an organophosphate pesticide, to kill Zika-carrying mosquitos in the artsy Wynwood district of Miami. Wynwood had several individuals who were said to carry Zika. Some local residents, however, were outraged when they discovered that naled is banned by the European Union as causing an ‘unacceptable risk to human health,’ because it is in a class of pesticides that have dangerous side effects. […]

A devastating irony is that birth defects – the very thing that naled is supposed to curb by killing Zika-carrying mosquitos – are a side effect of organophosphates. […]

Is Zika hysteria fueled for propaganda purposes, such as distraction from other events, or to serve as a sort of soft mind-control weapon by keeping people in a perpetual state of terror and fear? Or is Zika mania laying the groundwork for implementation of Big Government, pharma, and chemical solutions that will rip away at our liberty, health, and treasure?3

Whatever the actual nature of Zika’s threat to the public health and civil order of the United States, readers are hereby advised to thoroughly wash after contact with newspapers, David Rockefeller, Gwyneth Paltrow, or any of the various objects peddled through her website.
