Hen parties are full of amazing experiences and fun moments for everybody involved! No matter where you’re headed, you’ll want to have as much fun as possible. And we guarantee that at some point in the festivities, there will come a moment where you’ll want to pause from all the high-energy activities. And what better way to slow down than with a fun chick flick? There are so many ways to include hen party movies in the festivities. You could start the party with a film before heading out for drinks and dancing, or you could finish off the fun with a morning viewing of your favourite pick.
And hey, if you’ve already got a full schedule, you could always host a pre-hen party movie night with your wedding party! However you plan to enjoy them, keep these hen party movies in mind…
Bridesmaids is a firm favourite, featuring Kristen Wiig who plays Maid of Honour to her best friend, played by Maya Rudolph. This stellar cast features Rose Byrne, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy and Wendi McLendon-Covey and is full of mayhem, dress fittings spoiled by food poisoning and the most hilarious hen party meltdown. If you’re looking for laugh-out-loud moments, this is your number one pick!
Rough Night (2017)
Four friends (played by Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Kravitz) want to relive their glory days so they get together for a crazy bachelorette weekend in Miami. After picking up the bride’s friend (played by Kate McKinnon), things take a turn when the male stripper turns up dead and the ladies try to cover their tracks!
Sex and the City: The Movie (2008)
You can enjoy this movie without having seen a single episode of Sex and the City, the TV show. In the movie, Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) has a big wedding coming up.

The Hangover (2009)
This may seem like more of a ‘guy movie’ but it is absolutely hilarious and perfect for a co-ed party. Before Doug (Justin Bartha) gets married, he sets off to Sin City with his two besties (Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms) and his peculiar soon-to-be brother-in-law (Zach Galifianakis). The group soon loses Doug and have to retrace their steps from the night before so they can make it back to California in time for the wedding!
