Long Story Short:

After years apart, four best friends take a girls trip to New Orleans to rekindle their friendship. A trip they will never forget.

Review:

When I saw Queen Latifa and Jeda Pinkett Smith were going to have another movie together, I was in already.
Regina Hall has been making a name for herself for the past years and I have been a fan ever since Scary Movie.
Tiffany Haddish is a stand up comedian, who had only had small parts in movies so far, but has proven to be hilarious due to her stand up comedy performances.

So what could possible go wrong? The answer is everything: Usually the bigger, better, funnier and more talented a cast is, the worse the movie.
But in this case everything worked out well!

Smart directing and writing choices made this movie sometimes meaningful, emotional, funny and many times extremely raunchy, however, it was the kind of raunchy that makes one giggle and laugh out loud. It’s an adult comedy, so don’t get offended. I myself have not had so much fun in a long time.

In a way I thought Girls Trip was very honest; It shows how hard it is to be single these days, and that finding the right person is just not as easy as it used to be. Keeping up a friendship is even harder, even though we have all types of social media to stay connected. We have so much convenience and entertainment in our lives that we become lazy and don’t appreciate the real things far away from the world wide web.

Girls trip is the living proof that a storyline doesn’t have to be original in order to be successful. What matters is that the punchlines and right timing. Therefore, an experienced director like Malcolm D. Lee and writer like Kenya Barris are very beneficial.

Side note: As I mentioned Girls Trip is very raunchy and vulgar at times, which can be comparable to American Pie, but times two. I found it hilarious and almost spit out my drink a few times, but I have read mixed reviews about this specific topic. So if you get easily offended, do yourself a favor and don’t watch it.
