A funny, filthy comedy that has given the world both a mini Set It Off reunion, and the year’s best fruit-assisted blow-job joke.

These women have substance even though their characters are thinly written, and the film’s comedic flourishes offer a refreshing frankness about sex from women’s perspectives. The view of middle-class African-American women’s lives behind closed doors, despite its antic exaggeration, has a lived-in specificity. Lee’s direction doesn’t offer much style or vigor, but Haddish delivers a wild yet precise performance of verbal and gestural fury that puts her at the forefront of contemporary comedy.

Lee, perhaps best known for directing The Best Man (1999) and its sequel, stumbles here and there in the filmmaking — the movie has more than its share of awkward or outright bad shots — but not enough to distract you from the real trophy here: the chemistry of its stars… At its best, Girls Trip is wild and loose, rough around the edges, but nonetheless ample proof black women can have it all: friends, professional satisfaction, and raunch comedy, too.
