When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there's enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

In 2001, high-school student Teddy Walker drops out of school when he's unable to concentrate during a crucial test. In 2018 he works as a barbecue-grill salesman and dating a wealthy woman named Lisa, and has developed a careful financial strategy that allows him to maintain the illusion that he is better off than he actually is. But his life falls apart just as he learns that he will inherit control of the store when the current manager retires: As he proposes to Lisa in the shop, he accidentally triggers an explosion when a champagne cork pops open a gas tank; the manager runs away with the insurance from the explosion. Teddy's friend is willing to give him a job--if he can earn his GED.
It had it's moments, but an overall disappointing movie. Cliche and kind of lot of cringe
No Spoliers! I had read reviews about it but I wanted to give it a chance. It started off well but quickly turned into a typiyal cliche movie. There were some very funny moments, but also a lot of moments where jokes never landed. Those moments felt very awkard, as the jokes came up off with cringe. Kevin Hart was good but there was not a lot around him. His supporting cast couldnt be more cliche, as they fill the spots of the generic team. The actors are talented actors, but the writing is very poor. It had some sexual moments, and language but nothing too crazy. The plot is that one that we have seen before, and its okay. Overall, the comdey which should be the highlight, left me wanting more. This movie might be worth to watch when it gets to Netflix, Hulu, etc but I dont think its worth the money in theaters.
