Hands down “Girls Trip” is easily one of the funniest films of the year!  Can’t name too many outstanding comedies, especially rated R. raunchy comedies from 2017, but this is at the head of the pack.  Super generic story of four childhood friends who try to recapture what they had played by Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and the breakout star of 2017 Tiffany Haddish.  You know they’re gonna have a good time, antics will ensue, they’ll all have a falling out at some point, but then everything works out for everyone in the end and as long as you have the jokes and the performers who can pull them off then baby, you got yourself one funny-ass stew.

 

All hail the coming of Tiffany Haddish. Hall, Latifa, and Smith are at the top of their game here, but it’s Haddish who had me cracking up even before she uttered a line of dialogue, but don’t worry she can handle the filthy dialogue as well.  The four’s chemistry and friendship shines through and I’m sure there’s a Girls Trip 2 already in the works and you can mark me all aboard for that trip.
