Girls Trip is a foul-mouthed collage of blackness, girl power and sex drive. Weird enough I could not stop watching, the jokes were cool and the movie had enough funny events to make you wish you were on the same trip with these ladies.

This all girl comedy movie starts with the introduction of the four ladies Ryan, Sasha, Dina and Lisa with their individual struggles and personalities as they go through life.
The writers Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver developed the characters around the everyday woman. With the hope of reaching out to everyone. Either you find yourself in one of these career women, or you find your sister, mother or friend.

The movie plot revolves around a book tour to New Orleans. The four friends decided to make the best of this trip to reunite for a long-overdue getaway. They also decided to visit the annual Essence Music Festival (which is filled with cameo casting from popular musicians like P-Diddy and Common).

The movie plot dives into the struggle of each lady as we watch them be there for each other, during the tough times and make the best of one another during the good times. The whole team tried to make sure this trip will be more than memorable, but also life changing.

Ryan (Regina Hall) as said above is a successful author who has her husband on her side for show and tell. Her whole life is on display and everything most look perfect, legit and within her control, when it actually is not.
Sasha (Queen Latifah) is struggling with success at the moment. Finding it hard to get the world to cut her some slack as her website business has reached the bottom of the barrel when it comes to finances and her possessions are being repossessed. She puts up a front for she doesn’t want the others to notice her financial troubles.
Dina (Tiffany Haddish), is the one lady everyone needs to be, cutting lose and always ready to have a great time even when having a great time seems to be elusive. Her difficulty is putting her excited self under control, when angry or happy.
Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), is a divorced mother of two who is struggling to get back in the game of cutting lose. She is up tight and seems to be at the end of the barrel of many jokes.

The director Malcolm D. Lee took these four characters and everyone else in the movie and paced them is such a way that they don’t get into each other’s way and you will feel like the movie is trying to resolve each person individually and still entertain you the viewer.

Good movie and worth seeing when you get the chance.
