Were the jokes in Girls Trip funnier it would be far easier to overlook the flaws which mar the experience. There are some laughs to be had in the movie, but the balance of serious elements and humor never feels right.
Haddish's energy leaves a lasting impression. She makes Dina's outrageousness infectious. Although in keeping with the movie's humor, we may have to add infectious like a bad rash. The pleasures of Girls Trip aren't quite worth it.
[Girls Trip] isn't especially funny, and its sentimental sisterhood stuff is done by rote, but at least it's not one of those movies that fancy themselves as being terribly rude yet don't really have the nerve.
[the screenwriters] give us four cliched characters with the usual friendship and life obstacles, mix in pee showers and a couple of penises, then wrap it all up in sisterhood. If all it takes to make you laugh is a naked man, this one's for you.
