Girls Trip (press-screening review)

Director; Malcolm D. Lee
2h 2minutes
Comedy
Swedish premiere; September 29th

One of the most lively, joyful, and heart-warming comedies I’ve seen in a long time, with one woman empowering message that will bring all the ladies all over the globe together, bonding over strength, self-love, and self-worth – recognizing their own value, beauty, and depth.

I went into the screening without any expectations, believing it would simply be another chick-flick and nothing more, nothing less.
Turned out to be exactly what we woman needed, it’s been ages since we got a brilliant feel-good film that will not only bring endless of laughter but also leave the theater with that wonderful warm-fuzzy feeling that we often strive after when watching a movie of this genre.

Four longtime friends from college who’s lost contact due to obligations such as work, family, etc, go on a trip to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival and once again bonds together over parties, drinks, and love.

It’s a laugh-out-loud movie, an amazing script that will make you smile from beginning to end, a beautiful balance of comedy and powerful message to all women out there. An amazing cast of gorgeous and talented actresses that I hope to see in a sequel. Strongly recommended.
7.5/10
