Tiffany Haddish is a standout
20 July 2017 | by (White Plains, NY) – See all my reviews

"Girls Trip" is another "women can be raunchy too" comedy, one that from the trailer didn't look funny at all, but hey…at least they don't kill a stripper in this one (Rough Night).

Here, best friends who have only grown further apart since High School are hoping to reconnect at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

They're all basically types. Regina Hall has the most to work with as the one who only thinks she has it all together. The rest are the crazy one (Tiffany Haddish), obsessive one (Jada Pinkett), and gossipy one (Queen Latifah).

Through it all the girls will be brought on stage to dance with Puffy, have a dance-off with another set of girls, get into many fist fights and all kinds of other trouble.

It will also go for the most R-rated and nasty of crude jokes.

People I saw this movie with laughed through out at all of it and for their part, all four of these women embarrass themselves and get down and dirty very well.

Particularly this Tiffany Haddish, who will either annoy you or be your favorite part. She goes to some darkly funny places here the characters in Suicide Squad could only dream of.

But for all this talk of women in comedy, doing the same dick jokes men have been doing for so long really shouldn't be the apex. This is really just conquering a mole hill.

And please no more comedies that go over 2 hours long, particularly one like this where the plot suddenly has to kick in in the last half hour and it's just as generic as every other comedy about friendship.

On the one hand this is all really flimsy stuff which I got kinda tired of after 90 minutes, but it's also fun, tries hard for laughs, is very well cast and Hall has some good scenes in the last half.

I'd give it 6 out of 10 but I think if you can get past the clichés and you like toilet humor for a more than necessary period of time, you'll enjoy it a bit more.
