Best Hen Party Films

1. Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids is a classic, and one everybody should know. Bridesmaids came out in 2011 and is about Annie, a single woman whose life is pretty much a huge mess, but her lifelong best friend Lillian is engaged, which ultimately means Annie is maid of honour. And this is one of the best comedy hen party movies that goes through everything bridesmaids do together in the run-up to the big day.

2. Rough Night

Rough Night came out in 2017 and is about Jess who reunites with three of her college friends for a crazy weekend in Miami. And before you know it the night of partying takes a hilariously dark turn as a stripper accidentally dies at their beach party and so the night continues with them trying to cover it all up. If you are after being in stitches during the evening at home, then this will be one to add to your list of films.

3. Bachelorette

Bachelorette is one of those films that you cringe at with the amount that goes wrong but can’t help but laugh at the hilariousness of it all.

It was 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.

4. 27 Dresses

Another classic, released in 2008, Jane always seems to put the needs of others before her own which is why she has had 27 different bridesmaid dresses.

But when her sister snags the man Jane secretly loves, she finds herself questioning her role as the wedding junkie for the first time. It is the perfect movie to show that sometimes you must put yourself first - and a great party classic for your girl's night in.

5. Just Married

An old but gold, released way back in 2003, Married, shows the story of Tom and Sarah, two love birds from completely different worlds. Tom loves beer, Sarah is an aspiring writer, and her family does not approve of the pair.

And to top things off their honeymoon in Italy ends up disastrous as an unwelcomed ex appears. One of those chick flicks that everyone will love and the perfect addition to a celebratory weekend, especially if you are planning to have a chilled night in!
