Female-driven comedy is raunchy yet refreshingly fun

“Girls Trip”: A showcase of unapologetic Black womanhood in film

Haddish is now starring in the new comedy Girls Trip, alongside the much more famous Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

From Jada stressing that Haddish's rental auto without tinted windows may be risky (Haddish: "You're from Baltimore, bitch") to Will thinking about purchasing his own particular bog (Haddish: "You're going to purchase an entire ecosystem?!"), her account of cruising around New Orleans with two of the most popular individuals on the planet is an impeccably regulated dosage of absurdity that shows why Haddish should leave Girls Trip a star. "So, to me, it's always been one of the best places to come to just have fun".

On the off chance that you don't yet know who Tiffany Haddish is, your life is going to change for the amusing.

Hall is simply stunning in her role.

Girls Night, which also stars Larenz Tate, Kate Walsh and Mike Colter, is in theaters now.

Pinkett Smith carries her lithe, 5-foot frame with the poise and confidence of someone much taller. Who else, in the case of the raunchy comedy "Girls Trip", will urinate on Bourbon Street drunks in solidarity?

“Girls Trip”: A showcase of unapologetic Black womanhood in film

Girls Trip comes out Friday, and it's about time! All four actresses have shining moments of comedy and heart in director Malcolm D. Lee's ode to female friendships, thanks to the winning script by Kenya Barris ("black-ish") and Tracy Oliver ("Barbershop: The Next Cut"), but Haddish emerges as the most memorable.

The film "Girls Trip" has succeeded in portraying sisterly love on a relatable level, with the characters that are resonating with the viewers.

Four best girl friends of college reunite for a weekend trip to New Orleans after five years of separation. She added, "When I was coming out of the life, he was going more into the life". But unlike the boring "Rough Night", which also tried to play the girls-behaving-badly card, the humor in "Girls Trip" works, mostly because the gags are fresh and there's a true feeling of camaraderie among the cast members. Haddish, who plays Dina, is more like a down-to-party Tasmanian devil wreaking havoc in great heels and turning things up many octaves wherever she goes.

Throughout Girls Trip there are an array of sexual innuendos, charismatic vulgarities and even some calculated moments of nudity.

"Cohen also appreciates the realistic and relatable characters, calling the group "#friendshipgoals".

While there are many subplots to the film, the driving force of the story is that Ryan's friends find out her husband is cheating on her. Regardless of your race or gender, you'll be laughing all the way home. The two definitely get to display their amusing side, but actually have a few serious moments that help drive the story when Sasha's blog uncovers some detrimental info on Ryan's personal life which could hurt her blossoming career. She noted that Will Smith was so taken by the experience that he turned to Haddish and said, "I gotta get me one of these". He attributes the problems to the film's screenplay and its "focus on antics and bad language [more] than plot and character development".
