When lifestyle guru Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall), who is dubbed "the next Oprah", is offered an opportunity to be the keynote speaker at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, she decides to bring along her friends to turn her work vacation into a girls' trip. Joining Ryan is Sasha (Queen Latifah), an ex-journalist from Time magazine who now owns a floundering gossip site and is struggling financially; Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), a nurse and uptight mom who has not had a boyfriend since her divorce years earlier; and Dina (Tiffany Haddish), a happy-go-lucky, impulsive party animal who was fired after assaulting a coworker shortly before the trip.

Trivia

The words "Thug Life" are written on the wall of a crude, run-down motel upon the girls' arrival. "Thug Life" is a sentiment late rapper Tupac Shakur popularized during most of his rap career and he even had it tattooed across his stomach. Jada Pinkett Smith (who plays "Lisa Cooper") and Shakur were childhood friends. See more »

Not a chick flick and worthwhile for guys to see
24 July 2017 | by mts-78680See all my reviews

Pleasantly surprised I enjoyed this and got bonus points for seeing with My Lady. Probably won't get full recognition it deserves but this movie definitely was worth seeing (even for this guy).

Very funny, great script, exceptional chemistry among all the stars. Often this doesn't come thru but all actors (male & female)represented very well. Great interface with New Orleans festival and makes you wonder were the scenes actually performed there or injected, lol.

Tiffany Haddish (Dina) stole the show and hopefully gets proper recognition.

Only warning is content definitely "R" rated so don't accept urge to bring younger audiences. Definitely adult content and adult humor.
