Each summer comes with its share of alcohol-fueled comedies, where a bunch of goofy and relatable characters find themselves hilariously messing things up while still making you wish you'd get to go on the same insane benders. But while the classic story of a bachelor going wild on a trip with his best buddies has been done time and again, with The Hangover always leading the way, we were still in need of a properly funny, non-hysterical female equivalent.

And Sony has finally made it. It's called , with Scarlett Johansson as a soon-to-be-married lady who finds herself in quite the conundrum before sunrise — not because she's been getting all flirty with another guy, but because her bachelorette party leads to the death of the male stripper hired for the occasion.

I mean, + Zoe Kravitz + Kate McKinnon + Jillian Bell + Ilana Glazer? Now that is a formula for comedic success. The movie is directed by Lucia Aniello, who also wrote the script with Paul W. Downs — they both worked on the hit TV show Broad City and are attached as writers to an untitled 21 Jump Street spinoff.

Johansson plays Jess, on a trip to Miami to celebrate her bachelorette party with her best friends from college. Obviously, the night involves calling a male stripper over to their rented mansion — but being high on cocaine means that the girls aren't so delicate, and he's rendered unresponsive when a brutal push makes his head hit the floor.
