Storyline

Four best friends, the "Flossy Posse", have grown distant over the years. 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 co-worker shortly before the trip. While on the trip, Sasha is sent a tip that shows a picture of a black man's head kissing an Instagram model, presumed to be Ryan's husband, Stewart.

Trivia

Goofs

Dina says she is immune to gonorrhea because she's already had it. Because Neisseria gonorrhea exhibits antigenic variation, a previous infection does not confer immunity. However, this was intentional to show that Dina is not very bright especially earlier when she said that an infection cannot occur in the rectum. See more »

How did this movie get such a high score?
9 October 2018 | by cococm-83815See all my reviews

After watching this movie I am surprised how the average score of Girl's Trip is so high. The movie consists of horrible jokes and a constant exaggeration of stupidity. Though, I do admit, that I did laugh/smile 5 or 6 times throughout the movie, but for a comedy that lasts over two hours that is a failure. The actors are not doing a bad job, and the idea of 4 old friends going on a trip together is a common, but often fun, plot - but the movie is just plain bad. Peing on people, grinding a lamp, doing 'things' to fruit - what a shame that anyone thinks a comedy has to sink this is low in order to be funny. This is not what makes a comedy fun. Do not waist your time watching this movie, unless you want to feel like you have waisted two hours of your life.
