Alice Cooper: Live from the Astroturf To World PREMIERE At The Phoenix Film Festival

Movie Review: #GirlsTrip A pretty good time

A pretty good time

RAMA is back.

Although Girls Trip’s sex-crazed raunchy comedy loses its fuel halfway through and ultimately falls off the cliff of its own accord, the friendship themes are decent enough to carry the rest of the film to the end. I don’t know if it’s any better than that other female-centric party movie this season featuring mostly white cast, “Rough Night,” but “Girls Trip” in many respects is certainly more engaging.

Directed by Malcolm D. Lee who gave us “The Best Man” franchise, “GirlsTrip” stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett, and Tiffany Haddish as four life long best friends who’ve decided to reunite again for the big Essence Festival in New Orleans. Each of them tries their best to show the other that they’re in a good position in their life right now, relationship-wise and career-wise as they wildly dance and drink and romance into the night. But that success facade comes with secrets that will force them to rekindle their sisterhood.

Regina plays the famous marriage guru with an unfaithful husband. Latifah plays the struggling internet celeb blogger, much like Perez Hilton. Jada Pinkett plays the single mom who has been a bit rusty in the sex department. And Tiffany Haddish plays the comical loud mouth, your stereotypical confrontational best friend who talks first and thinks never, ‘responsible’ is not her middle name. Now, just like with any party movie, “Girls Trip” is also filled with outrageous shock value situations that are meant to push the envelope further. The R-rating it receives for crude sexual content, pervasive language, drugs, and brief nudity, doesn’t even begin to describe what “Girls Trip” really has in store for you, which in a way does say something about these four actresses who seem to be all game and all in for whatever, unapologetically.

I think the problem with the film’s comedy is that halfway through, all those blunt in-your-face sex jokes just get played out. It’s as if Haddish’ character runs out of her ‘superpower.’ But as I said earlier, the friendship conflict and resolution part is pretty coherent and relatable so much so that you don’t mind if the film is unable to be funny anymore. Because it can’t be just about the parties, there has to be something else that the audiences can grab on to, and fortunately, “Girls Trip” has that.
