While at the recent BlogHer Conference, I had the amazing opportunity to attend an advanced screening of the movie Girls Trip.  This was one of the highlights of my entire time at BlogHer – I haven’t laughed so hard in a really long time!  Within the first few minutes of the movie the comedy began and this movie had an entire room of women in hysterics for over 2 hours.

Girls Trip

Rated R

In theaters July 21 

When four lifelong friends—Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish—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.

It was amazing seeing Queen Latifah back on the big screen as she is one of my favorite actresses and can always bring a movie to life.     

While the movie is over-the-top in some respects, it has characters that most women can relate to.  I often feel like Jada Pinkett Smith’s character Lisa, who is a busy mom who appears to have lost her ability to let loose until her besties pull it out of her.  I wish I had a friend like Tiffany Haddish’s character Dina who played a fiercely loyal friend who was the source of most of the comedy.  Regina Hall’s character, Ryan, is forced to find herself; while Queen Latifah’s Sasha has her loyalty tested.  These women’s stories are so relatable that it makes this movie tug your emotions in different directions while still keeping you laughing.

I honestly can’t say enough good things about this movie, it left me missing my old girl friends, wanting to take a Girls Trip without the kids, and needing a wardrobe change from laughing so hard.
