Movie Reviews

Girl’s Trip

The previews for “Girls Trip” are a bit deceiving. Like many comedies, the trailer only shows half jokes and makes the film look like it leans toward the slap stick side of comedy rather one filled with clever humor. The first few minutes feel a little forced in their attempt to make people laugh. But rather quickly that impression fades.

The audience rolled with laughter at the screening for “Girls Trip” for pretty much the entire length of the film. Perhaps the funniest comedy about a squad of misbehaving women since “Bridesmaid;” each moment comes at you fast and is funnier than the last.

Highschool friends Ryan (Regina Hall), Sasha (Queen Latifa), Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Dina (Tiffany Haddish) travel to New Orleans for a girls trip to reconnect and cut loose after years apart. Hot guys, loud music, and adults-only jokes, their trip is filled with mishaps. The comedic style is a little chaotic, but its so much fun to watch.

Also really enjoyable are the musical appearances by Ne-Yo, Mariah Carey, and Diddy. The plot is largely about the entertainment industry and its more human side.

“Girls Trip” also has a surprising amount of depth running through its storyline. The four ladies had grown apart and had their issues with each other here and there after high school. On the trip, years of misunderstandings surface to get hashed out. Strong themes of friendship, inner strength and honesty with oneself are a core part of the film.

Ryan herself has become a celebrity over the years alongside her famous football player husband, and Sasha has developed a tabloid website. The two women are diametrically opposed to each other at points. Their struggle for understanding gives viewers a glimpse of the effect the scorning public eye has on celebrities and their personal lives.

I give “Girls Trip 4 out of 5 stars.”
