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.

They sure like their beatdowns. And no you can't have it all, clearly. I really felt the whole, friends that become enemies, that become distant, that cease being friends, that come back as semi-friends, that go away for good. Life's hard and this film really touches a nostalgic chord. Also: it is beyond hilarious. That zip line ride 'with a chaser' was hysterical.
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.
It was a little fun in watching this but overall the movie is boring and way too long at 2h.
There was some chemistry between some of the girls but seriously they should have cast another actress instead of that hungry ass bitch Tiffany Haddish.
The bad language and the repetitive sex jokes worked until one point...
5/10. Two stars just because of J.P. Smith and her funny, silly character.
Cute I guess. Well it has cute parts. I’m just not the audience for this. Has some influence from the hangover style of comedies that have been so popular of late. See a faint Judd apatow influence as well. Long for a comedy for example and tries to tackle serious topics such a lifelong friendship and balancing individuality with love and work. I think. Does to the grapefruit what CMBYN did for peaches
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.
