Girls Trip centers around Ryan (Regina Hall), a successful author, who has been invited to be the keynote speaker at the annual Essence Festival in New Orleans. Ryan decides to make this a girls trip and invite her friends Sasha (Queen Latifah), Lisa (Jada Pinkett-Smith), and Dina (Tiffany Haddish). The women have been friends since college, but life has had them grow apart, and this trip is the perfect time for them to reconnect. Their trip to the Essence Festival will leave their lives forever changed as they reconnect with one another.
Ryan is a successful and well put together wife, with the perfect husband and life. Sasha is a journalist turned gossip blogger who has made a bad reputation for airing celebrities dirty laundry. Lisa is the divorced mom-focused friend who needs to let loose on this trip. Dina is the crazy friend everyone in the world needs to live life and have fun. For me, Tiffany Haddish definitely steals the entire show and keeps the audience’s attention by delivering some of the funniest scenes in the film. Jada Pinkett-Smith comes in a close second with her crazy antics and gives new meaning to a golden shower.
One of the main things I enjoyed about this film was the consistent comedy from beginning to end. Most comedic movies lose their steam halfway through the film, but Girls Trip breaks the mold and finds a way to keep the jokes consistent and relevant the entire time. Girls Trip is raunchy comedy performed to perfection. This film goes there in a good way that will keep the audience laughing as the women show you how far they can go. I have to recommend you PAY to see this film in theaters. This is hands down one of the funniest movies of the year!
