Bachelorette Hunt

Girls Night Out (2017)

Thanks to her fiancé, McKenzie (Mackenzie Mauzy) is about to get a surprise bachelorette party as he has been in contact with her three college friends who haven't been together as a group in years. But the party doesn't go as planned as McKenzie's former boyfriend Brandon (Jacob Blair), whose reputation and future sports career was destroyed when she accused him of date rape back in college, kidnaps her fiancé and forces McKenzie and her friends to complete a series of hazing style tasks if they ever want to see him again. But as the night plays out McKenzie is forced to confront her past and is not sure whether she can do what is necessary to save her man.

When it comes to Lifetime movies I often find the concept is much better than the movie itself and that is certainly the case when it comes to "Girls Night Out". For me the whole idea of a guy seeking revenge and forcing a group of old college friends to complete a series of hazing style tasks, from kissing a corpse to retrieving a condom from a dumpster, had the potential to be an entertaining thriller. Okay I actually think that in the right hands the idea could have made for an entertaining sorority horror movie with an element of self awareness.

But as is so often the case with these Lifetime movies the finished product lacks that finesse to make the movie work. Okay what I mean is that it has issues from poorly written characters and dialogue to weak, generic acting as well as some cheap looking sets. And it also lacks storyline depth which leaves you questioning various things which at its basic you wonder whether old friends from college would really put themselves in danger for an old friend and a guy they barely know.

What this all boils down to is that "Girls Night Out" as a movie is a struggle, although as is often the case gets more entertaining the longer it goes on. But as is also often the case, "Girls Night Out" is a movie where the idea is a lot better than the finished product and only the biggest fans of Lifetime movies are likely to enjoy it.
