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

The film reunites Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith just over 20 years since they co-starred in Set It Off (1996). See more »

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 »

Quotes

Dina: You know, I got some bomb-ass kush if you wanna take a hit.
Lisa Cooper: Where did you hide it?
Dina: Where the sun don't shine.
Lisa Cooper: You know what, that can cause a lot of infections.
Dina: Girl, you can't get no infection in your booty hole! It's a booty hole!

This movie is pure laughs. Absolutely funny.
23 July 2017 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

I went into it with a good feeling about it. The trailer looked like the film was going to be real entertaining, but this was better than I expected.

It's funny that Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith are not more centered stage in this movie as I though they were bigger stars than that, but I forget Regina Hall has made quite a name for herself in the last few years. The film centers around her character, Ryan who gathers her crew who she has not scene for years to an event in New Orleans so that they can reconnect.

All the women were funny in this movie but special shout out to Tiffany Haddish who I've never herd of before this movie but will never forget. She gave it all to get the big laughs just like Melissa McCarthy did in Bridesmaids.

Nothing's more funnier than watching women get down and dirty about things that would not be considered proper etiquette. I want to see it all and I got that from Girls Trip. This had me laughing from beginning to end. It's hilarious. Plus it's a good movie about friends hanging with each other. You get the vibe from all the characters that they have been down for one another forever, and it gives you that good feeling.

A great movie.
