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.

Like any party or shindig that goes on for a bit too long. It's a huge barrel of fun for the first half, but as the nights grows old, you can almost feel the hangover and fatigue set in. All four of the leads are tremendous, especially Tiffany Haddish, who is a total knockout, and Regina Hall brings a strong, conflicted dynamic to her character, but by 85 minutes, the deafening music and potty talk becomes a bit much
Raucous and heartfelt with some pertinent things to say about the pressures successful women face. The four leads are dynamic and perfectly matched. Sets a new high watermark for female empowerment and buddy trip movies (whether male or female) for the foreseeable future.
With the exception of one scene that might be too, well, everything - believe me, you'll know when it's happening and it had me in stitches - the film plays out exactly the way you'd expect. And that's completely fine because it's all jokes, fun and Tiffany Haddish. I'd like a sequel. Or a Dina spin-off. Just bring these women back, Hollywood.
I don't remember the last time I laughed this hard at a movie. What an amazing surprise this was. Girls Trip is the most fun filmgoing experience I've had all year.
The cast is amazing all around, but the star is newcomer Tiffany Haddish. She just about steals the whole movie and is undoubtedly the breakout star of the year.
Really not my sense of humour. Did not enjoy the violence (even if perpetrated by women), The sexe and sexual references (gross), the story (be true to who you are and do not accept to be undermined for fear of being alone) and let's not speak about the urinating. I gave it a 2 stars because I laughed once.
