Comedy: Five former college friends travel to Miami for their best friend's wild bachelorette party and accidentally kill a man.
Jess (SCARLETT JOHANSSON) is a young thirty-something running for state Senate and engaged to a kind and supportive man named Peter (PAUL W. DOWNS). Her needy best friend from college, Alice (JILLIAN BELL), decides to reunite their circle of friends from college and throw a big bachelorette party in Miami. Invited are Blair (ZOE KRAVITZ), a young professional going through a divorce; Frankie (ILANA GLAZER), a political activist and Blair's former college lover; and Pippa (KATE McKINNON), Jess' onetime college roommate from Australia.

Jess tries to stay on the straight and narrow to have any chance of being elected. But Alice is committed to making it a raucous weekend. When Frankie scores some cocaine at a club, the five friends start an all-night bender of drugs, booze, food, and dancing. When they return to their beach house, Jess discovers that Frankie has hired Scotty (RYAN COOPER), a stripper, to perform for her. Alice gets a little too excited and pounces on him. The man falls backward, hits his head, and dies. With Blair fearing she will lose her son in a custody battle, Jess' political career in jeopardy, and Frankie on her last strike with the law and facing significant prison time, the five friends decide to get rid of the body and never speak of the crime again.

Unfortunately, they are terribly inept at the cover-up. They also discover that their next-door neighbors, promiscuous swingers Pietro (TY BURRELL) and Lea (DEMI MOORE), have security cameras that likely caught much of their illegal hijinks and Blair agrees to a threesome in exchange for the recordings. At the same time, Peter is freaking out at a dropped cell phone call in which he believes Jess has broken up with him. So he vows to wear adult diapers and shot-gun Red Bulls on a madcap drive to Florida to save his impending marriage. Will he get there in time to save Jess and her friends from the two jewel thieves Frazier (DEAN WINTERS) and Ruiz (ENRIQUE MURCIANO) who have also shown up?

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
