Girls Trip is directed by Malcom D Lee and stars our best version of Fantastic Four we are going to get for a while - Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Hadish. Reuniting four lifelong friends commonly referred to as the Flossy Posse, they travel to New Orleans to attend the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, however, they rediscover themselves and truly let out their wild side.
A Girls Trip worth attending. Booze, Bums and unfiltered humour - Girls Trip (GT) is the rare adult comedy that stretches its jokes up to the point exhaustion - but finds the perfect place to stop. The excessive amount of dick jokes and smutty humour ultimately work in the film's favour - intentionally over the top, Girls Trip is one raunchy comedy that delivers on the raunch.
Precisely where last year's Bad Moms fail to, Girls Trip and its leads are fantastically hip. Bad Moms struggled to find any humour in its oddly amusing premise - as if a bunch of mums happened to write the script - what seemed naughty was simply lame. Not just its family UN-friendly gags but common dialect used across the lengthy 122 minute run time makes GT a wonderfully trendy experience. 'Turnt', 'Slay', 'Preach' are sure to remind you of the current texts, tweets or conversations you and your friends have.
A distinctive ensemble of Bridesmaids and The Hangover - Girls Trip stands alone amongst a previously white male brand. 2017 once again shines its influence from Drama (Moonlight) to Biography (Hidden Figures) and now blows the doors of comedy. GT is driven by its magnificently black dominated cast, writer and director. With recent comedies from the industry, we aren't offered anything new - its mainly the same people doing the same idiotic things. Girls Trip however is a breath of fresh air, we may have seen the events before but the faces taking part in them is what's so exciting - making GT not only enjoyable but important for the black community.
It goes without saying, Girls Trip is charged by its not only hilarious but compelling characters that make up the adorably fantastic foursome. Whether you're that friend who's too uptight, a major gossipmonger, awfully reckless or responsibly level headed - this is one buddy movie you may easily find a piece of yourself in. It conveys important messages about friendship and sister hood; in the mist of where slapstick and sentimental collide - GT is a comic recipe of just the right ingredients.
Alcohol, Sexy Slang, Hallucinations and Dance Fights - a road trip worth the extra baggage. Joining the trend in one of the most successful years for the film industry - Girls Trip too finds excitingly new ways to spice up the genre. It may dip and never establish where exactly the story is going - but with the chemistry of its four leads and offering some genuinely likeable characters - Girls Trip is the summer's biggest surprise.
