Girl's Trip is the Comedy of the Summer!

Girl's Trip is the movie of the summer. I love comedies. I determine how funny a movie is based on choke factor. In other words, will it make me choke on my popcorn. This movie did it. I had difficulty eating and drinking without an interruption of laughter.  I wasn’t alone because the crowd laughed so much that I know we missed jokes along the way. There are so many funny scenes that remind you of some aspect of your own friendship experience.  The cast made the movie extra special.  These lifelong friends (Flossy Posse) in the movie, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Tiffany Haddish & Regina Hall sparkled on the big screen. Even Kate Walsh who isn’t in the Flossy Posse was funny too.

Will Packer did an amazing job of capturing how friends go their separate ways, but there is common thread that should never be forgotten or lost. True friends will have a difference of opinion. Friends will have ups and downs. However, in the end friends should be unique and genuine, not fake, phony or pretentious. If we could all be so lucky to have friends for years that you can count on through thick or thin. 

 I met Will Packer when our children attended Terry Vaughn’s acting camp years ago. If I saw him today, I would say job well done. I look forward to supporting more of his films. In the meantime, I guess I will have to show support via ticket sales on opening weekend! Here’s to friends…
