Have you ever taken an extra close look at your best girlfriends and found them hilarious, compelling and maybe even just a tiny bit horrifying?
Well, watching the female led ensemble comedy Girls Trip will give you all those feelings and more. It’s the kind of movie where, if you’re not shrieking with laughter you’re covering your eyes with your hands in embarrassment. Or sometimes just shaking your head in disappointment.
The voice over heavy opening sequence introduces the audience to the “Flossy Posse”, a group of best friends from college who are thicker than thieves and love each other harder than Bert loves Ernie.
Ryan Pierce (Regina Hall), is a wildly successful self-help author married to a dashing retired NFL player with her own talk show and product line in the works. Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith) is juggling her career as a doctor with her new responsibilities as a single mum.
Sasha (Queen Latifah), is a serious journalist turned gossip blogger whose website is about to shut down, and Dina (Tiffany Haddish) is well….lets just say she assaults somebody and gets fired from her job in the opening moments of the film and then shakes it off with a laugh and proceeds to party hard for the rest of the movie.
Watch the video playing above to see Jada Pinkett Smith talk to Mamamia Entertainment Editor Laura Brodnik about losing herself in motherhood and which of her celebrity friends she would take on a girls trip.
The women have all lost touch a bit over the years (a sad fact of life that befalls even the closest of friends) but have all come together for a girls trip to New Orleans where Ryan is the keynote speaker at the Essence Festival.
