Girls Trip (15)


When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there's enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

The critical consensus

Though Girls Trip slathers on the sentimentality in its final throes, the raunchy tomfoolery that's blasted in your face for most of the duration – a marvellous blend of Bridesmaids and the filthiness of the Farrellys – renders the ending entirely forgivable.

The four leads seem to be enjoying themselves and (judging by the spectacular early box office results in the US) so are their audiences.

Paired with a few good friends and a strong beverage or two, it’s an absolute scream.

Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies, 26/07/2017

Girls Trip is crude and veers towards soap opera but there is a chemistry between the stars, some funny situations and Haddish steals the show as the unrelentingly vulgar Dina.

Four old college friends take a trip to New Orleans in this raunchy, freewheeling comedy.

****(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 30/07/2017

It's loud, at times unwatchably gross and sometimes lingers on the verge of hysteria. But it's also a warm-hearted and optimistic celebration of black womanhood. Maybe friendship can save us all.
