So, GIRLS TRIP Looks Hella Fun

So, one of my writer friends insists that this is "the female version of The Hangover." Take from that what you will. The Hangover is actually a movie I can't seem to quit, but I have never cared for the act of describing a film through the guise of its male comparison. It's condescending and unnecessary.

That aside, word of mouth for GIRLS TRIP has been great, and folks on my Twitter feed are already buzzing about getting their crew together for a night out to the movie theater to see this. As for me, I can't say I am hyped about it, but I'll tell you one thing: whoever thought of putting Regina Hall and Queen Latifah in a movie together needs their own award because these two women are easily among the smartest, hardest working actors in Hollywood. I refuse to debate this. Oh, and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) and Larenz Tate? Yes, please. Plus, I can't stress how important it that Hollywood (shout out to director Malcolm D. Lee!) is attempting to break the stereotype that black people--particularly black women--don't travel. That's worth a discussion in itself.

Here's the official synopsis:

Producer Will Packer (Ride Along and Think Like a Man franchises, Almost Christmas) presents Girls Trip, a new comedy from director/producer Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man franchise, Barbershop: The Next Cut).

When four lifelong friends—Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah—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.

Check out some stills:

Not really sold on this but happy to see a comedy being released with four women of color leads.
