Movie Review: Girl’s Trip

 

Now available today on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download is the comedy film, Girl’s Trip.

Girl’s Trip features Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish.

This film is rated “R”, and rightfully so. If you have seen the red band trailer for this film you’ll know why. It can be a bit raunchy at times.

Girl’s Trip is about four women who are college friends, but have been distant over the years. They were once known as the “Flossy Posse.”

Ryan (Hall) is a self help guru that is married to a retired football player. She is asked to speak at a conference in New Orleans, LA.

Ryan thinks this is a great opportunity to reconnect with her friends, especially Sasha. They had a falling out years ago over business deal that went sour.

Also along for the ride is Lisa (Smith), a very proper, “goody two shoes”, divorced mom and Dina, who has a bit of an “anger issue.”

As you can probably guess, madness and mayhem ensure when this quartet reconnect in the French Quarter. A LOT of craziness ensues.

There is romance, as well as an issue that could rip a pair’s friendship up forever and destroy one of the friend’s lives. I won’t go into much detail, but I wanted to mention that so that people don’t think this movie is just about sex crazed ladies having too much of a good time. There IS a story line/plot to the film.

 

I wasn’t sure about this film at first. I am NOT a “prude” by any means, but I am also not a fan of overly sexual films/scenes that are obsessed with sex and every sexual joke imaginable. I get it, some of it can be funny, but it’s not necessary to make the entire film revolve around it. This film DOES have A LOT of sexual references and jokes, but thankfully the rest of the film makes up for that and it’s not just about “getting it on.”

This movie is actually pretty funny. These ladies have a great chemistry together. I think that is why their on screen friendship comes across as genuine and believable.

This is a long movie (over two hours) but it honestly didn’t feel that long because there was so much going on at all times that it made time pass quickly. There are also A LOT of bonus materials worth checking out, most especially the Outtakes and Outrageous Moments (great featurettes for more laughs).

Admittedly I didn’t partake in the commentary. I am not a fan of commentaries.

I’ve never been to New Orleans before, but after watching this film I think I’ll add it to my “Bucket List” of places I want to visit some day, although MAYBE it’s a wee bit too wild for my taste. LOL!

Look for Girl’s Trip where ever movies are sold.

You can also check out the film on social media (GirlsTripMovie on both Facebook and Twitter).
