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

The struggler is Sasha (Queen Latifah), a former serious journalist turned flailing gossip blogger; the wallflower, Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), is a nurse and single mom; the cutup, Dina (Tiffany Haddish), well, it’s unclear what she does.Who: With Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish and Larenz Tate.”We’ve all seen the paradigm of men behaving badly and going away on a weekend doing bad things and getting away with it…and their wives are none the wiser”, says Lee.Hidden Figures told the real-life story of three African-American women, played by Viola Davis, Taraji P. Henson, and Janelle Monae, who contributed to the Space Race by working at NASA in the 1960s. Will Universal Pictures’ comedy “Girls Trip” experience a similar fate? I realized that when I would just go to the side and deal with my stuff. “And that is something that I am constantly having to confront”. And his cast is game, particularly Haddish and Pinkett Smith, who will do whatever they have to for a laugh.All the women are amusing, but this is Haddish’s movie, and it will make her a star. Maybe, the thinking goes, films like Rough Night, The House, and CHiPs are failing not on their own merits, but because mid-budget studio releases just won’t be where we get our comedy going forward.

Haddish said. “He goes, ‘West Philadelphia.’ He goes, ‘Ah ha!” However, she did vaguely address how she was able to get away from that life and how the “All Eyez On Me” rapper never did.The ladies, dealing with all the anxieties that inure to late 30/early 40 somethings in this day and age, haven’t had a gals trip in a while-after years of sowing their wild oats and getting their drink on in college and the days that followed-so a get together is in order, and mayhem soon follows. Then we thought, maybe we can reunite the sisters of Set It Off, Jada and Latifah.Time has created cracks in the sisterhood – Sasha resents Ryan over a failed business venture – but the posse sets that aside in their quest to “get white-boy drunk” (as Dina puts it), bed the handsomest men, dance in the funkiest clubs and generally turn New Orleans on its ear.”You can’t expect your partner to make you happy, and that’s across the board”, said Smith. The “Best Man” sequel, which came out in 2013, fourteen years after the original, worked in part because of the familial tenderness of the actors’ performances.We recently asked you to support our journalism.
