If you are after being in stitches during the hen night at home then this will be one to add to your list of films.

3. Bachelorette

Bachelorette is one of them films that you cringe at with the amount that goes wrong but can’t help but laugh at the hilari­ousness of it all. It first released in 2012 and is about a group of bridesmaids ruining their friend’s wedding dress, so of course they set out on a search to find a replacement but their mission ends up being a night full of alcohol and partying. Similar to how a hen party might be?
