Girls Trip is the rare R-rated comedy that pushes boundaries to truly comedic effect -- and anchors its laughs in compelling characters brought to life by a brilliantly assembled cast.

[Tiffany] Haddish is a genius technician of physical comedy, at once subtle and gigantic.
Malcolm D. Lee's exuberant Girls Trip easily outclasses the likes of Bad Moms and Rough Night.
There's nothing embarrassing about the Posse in Girls Trip, which depicts the friendships these characters have sustained not as vestigial remnants, but as a guiding force toward being true to oneself.
In all the ways 'Rough Night' went wrong, 'Girl Trip' goes hilariously right. Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and-yowza!- Tiffany Haddish let laughs bubble out of character instead of blunt-force farce. It makes all the difference.
There is no raunchier, more raucous, filthy and truly crass movie out this summer than Girls Trip - and I loved every minute of it.
The dynamic between the four friends leaps off the screen and makes "Girls Trip" a journey well worth taking.
Girls Trip is a great two hours of pure escapism with some disgustingly hilarious and joyful moments, but we could really have done without so much schmaltz being piled on top.
Girls Trip is a film that is a hilarious time at the movies thanks to the energetically raunchy script, the wonderful cast and the dynamite chemistry.
Girls Trip turns caricatures into characters and leaves us with the best comedy so far this summer.
It's always a pleasure when a film portrays its female characters with a warmth and realism that makes you long to hang out with them if they existed in the real world.
It's just too bad that a film purporting to espouse female empowerment has to resort to simulated fellatio, public urination, and full-frontal male nudity in order to get its biggest laughs.
The sparkling and heartfelt performances from the four leads, plus the sheer boisterousness of the script, makes this a proper laugh-out-loud watch.
I didn't like Girls Trip. No great shock there, it's an American Comedy in much the same vein as a great number of American Comedies that have come before it I didn't like. A lot of other people did like it. That's fine. Different strokes for different folks. All that jazz. I totally understand it. What I don't understand is the vast number of people who have said "This one's different. This movie is gonna appeal to the people who don't normally go in for this sort of thing. It breaks all the conventions and even Independent film & Oscar film fans will love it". Like... No... When you follow up your piss-joke with the exact same piss-joke just seconds later... It's like... This is exactly the same as every other movie I hate.
An exceptionally funny and worthwhile comedy!
It's very rare that a comedy comes out and many of the jokes stick with you afterward. Not since films like Superbad, Anchorman, or The 40-Year-Old Virgin has a film come out and become a worldwide classic in terms of its jokes. Many years have passed by since the last quotable comedy, and while I can't say that Girls Trip is destined to become the next one of those, it has definitely made a statement for comedies in 2017, because this particular genre has been pretty dry. As I said, this film won't be remembered as a classic, but it's a really solid flick that doesn't shy away from raunchy jokes, and it brings just enough heart to the table to make you care about where each of the characters end up. Here is why I believe Girls Trip is worth your time.
Ensemble pieces are usually what makes or breaks a comedy for many people. When actors or actresses can play off each other, that's where many of the laughs come from. Sure, Chris Farley stumbling around is funny, but a full film based on that can become tiring, which is where chemistry between actors and actresses comes in handy. Although movies like Bridesmaids are hard to top in terms of an ensemble of women leading a feature film, I would go as far as to say that Girls Trip gives it a run for its money.
Following a group of women after they've been separated from their childhood antics due to either becoming famous or needing to focus on their work, an opportunity brings them back together and grants them one last chance to become true friends again. Having to deal with troubled relationships, wanting to have sex, and just wanting to cut loose for a weekend, Girls Trip is the type of comedy that can really catch you off guard if you're not expecting a wild and raunchy ride.
I personally love Regina Hall in pretty much everything she's in and Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith deliver solid performance and are believable as best friends. The standout of this film is easily the wild one of the bunch, played by Tiffany Haddish. Now, if you're easily offended by raunchy people, then her performance alone will probably turn you off, but if you're all in, then she makes this movie truly worthwhile. Her eccentric character equally disgusted me and put a smile on my face. So as far as the chemistry between the characters and the comedy itself goes, this movie is a blast from start to finish, but that's not really enough to call it great.
Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with this film, but the story itself is something you've seen a million times before. Friends reconnect, some of them need to mend a few wounds and each of them has their own personal issues to deal with. You can see the ending from a mile away, but at least the cast holds it together extremely well, delivering believable performances, making you not complain too much about the premise itself.
In the end, Girls Trip is easily recommendable for those who enjoy R-rated comedies, but if you're looking for something tame, I would advise against it. Simply put, this movie is all too familiar to call it one of the best comedies I've seen in a while, and while I find myself remembering many of the jokes and would watch it a few more times for the chemistry and antics, the movie itself just isn't sticking with me the same way the jokes are. I would call this a mixture of The Hangover and The Hangover: Part II, in that you like the characters, but the premise itself feels familiar. It has some great jokes as if you were watching The Hangover for the first time, but there are moments that leave a bad taste in your mouth like The Hangover: Part II did. Still, I enjoyed it from start to finish, so it gets a recommendation from me.
I don't understand the high rating. Though the end message was nice and empowering, the middle was an absolute mess. Crude for the sake of it, not funny, don't even start me on the pissing scene. I actually really hate how any girls night comedy has to involve drug scenes and heavy drinking and people behaving like animals. It's just really lazy story telling and it's not funny either. I'm not a prude and swearing doesn't bother me, but less is more. The heavy drama scenes with swearing would have carried more weight if the character didn't speak like that constantly. Honestly I found a lot of this nasty.
Boring too. Which is a shame because handled differently, this movie could have been good.
