“Girls Trip” The Posse Rocks the House with Slapstick Comedy

Do you remember the closeness you had with your friends back when you were young? Things were simple back then, but then you got older and things changed. This story is about four good friends from high school who get together to have a long weekend trip in New Orleans to have some fun and recreate their memories.

These girls were close through college and well into their twenties, when one day they just stopped getting together. The Flossy Posse they were called, Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall) the one who has it all together, Sasha Franklin (Queen Latifah) the gossip girl, Lisa Cooper (Jada Pinkett Smith) the motherly type, and Dina (Tiffany Haddish), the girl that likes to have fun. Together they can take control of the world, but separate things don’t always work out.

After years have past Ryan who is a published author is selected to be a keynote speaker at the annual Essence Music Festival in the Big Easy. When her publicist, Elizabeth Davelli (Kate Walsh), makes a suggestion to invite her friends to help support her at this big event. The idea goes over well with the other three and the Posse gets back together for a time of their lives.

College Graduation

Director Malcolm D. Lee brings this hysterical but highly sexual explicit story that sometimes gets a little out of hand. He presents characters very well and drives the narrative throughout the film with amusing erotic situations that keep you laughing. Lee also places this tale in a good setting by using, New Orleans and shows this great city in a new light.

Heading to New Orleans

The funny antics from these girls are comical and entertaining and do pull the film together perfectly. They go even further and place together a great friendship story that will connect to everyone. This storyline is similar to previous themes, but does show the female side of these such adventures.

Having Fun

Final Comments: My overall review was based on the hilarious storyline and entertaining sexual situations.

Good Friends
