Claire (Desiree Hall) is about to get married and she goes to Las Vegas with her sister and two friends for her bachelorette party. Things quickly spiral out of control.


Best Night Ever? Mostly like Worst Film Ever. Pretending to be the female version of The Hangover, Best Night Ever is actually a cruel, sadistic cinematic joke that makes films like The Hangover Part II, or Spring Breakers look like masterpieces. Awful from start to finish, words can't describe how annoying, stupid, ridiculous this film is. At no point did I laugh, smile, or chuckle, and the only way to have a grin on my face was to call the Joker. 

Known for their demential parodies - Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, Meet the Spartans, Vampires Suck, and The Starving Games -, writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer opted for a more original project this time. The problem is that there is nothing original here, and if you have seen films like The Hangover, or Bridesmaid, it's basically like you have already seen this one, you just have to picture it in a very, very unfunny way.

The editing is awful, and I really don't understand why some nudities have been censured while others haven't. The handy-camera was definitely the wrong choice for this one, and all it does is giving the feelings that you are watching an awful homemade video that is supposed to be funny for how embarrassing it is.

Also, I'd really like to know how the four women manage not to end up killed or arrested for the felonies they committed - the cops are not even after them -, and they somehow manage to have perfect hair, perfect makeup, and barely dirty clothes.

The actresses featured seems to have a good rapport, but that's it: they try too hard to be funny, and their acting is awful as everything else.

If you got through this film with a smile on your face, you really deserve an award for your performance.
