LMN’s Synopsis of Girls Night Out
McKenzie is getting ready to have the best night ever as she prepares for her upcoming bachelorette party, which is just months away. You see McKenzie is getting married to the love of her life, her fiancé. Together with her two other girlfriends, they set the scene for some epic fun that will allow them to create some wonderful memories. But what starts out as a night of unforgettable fun turns to a nightmare when McKenzie’s ex-boyfriend, Brandon, comes back to town with the intention of ruining her life.
Before McKenzie became engaged, she was dating Brandon, an out of control freak who ended up raping her one night. McKenzie fought back by revealing what Brandon had done, which ended up sort of ruining his life and destroying his chances to enter into the National Hockey League.
Well it’s payback time. Now, Brandon is set on getting the revenge he deserves by destroying McKenzie’s wedding and the rest of her life. And she’s not the target. The groom has been kidnapped by Brandon from a local bar after he drops drugs in his drink.
Brandon video tapes the unresponsive groom to push McKenzie into performing a series of bizarre scavenger hunt games that involve extreme hazing acts, much like those they did in college. And even worse, McKenzie’s two best friends are also pulled into the deadly plot.
The mental torture sends McKenzie to the brink of breaking. But she has no time for a mental breakdown, she must save her man in time before she is forced to change her story and exonerate a rapist who could end up killing them both in the end.
Girls Night Out on Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) looks like the perfect Sunday night movie. And the topic of extreme hazing is an appropriate one since it happens in colleges around the United States every day.
