Movie Review “Girls Trip”

We finally had the opportunity to experience “Girls Trip” and it was PHENOMENAL. 

Best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild side by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

We walked into the film expecting to laugh through the entire movie and have an entertaining experience. However, upon completion of the film, you realize that there is a story amongst the humor and even deeper, a form of self realization within the story. 

Jada Pinkett Smith

We all know Girls Trip is based on 4 girlfriends taking a trip to the Essence Festival in the hopes of reconnecting and fixing their strained relationship. During this trip, you begin to learn each member of the group and you subconsciously start to place your friends into their roles. 

For those who haven’t seen it, we strongly suggest you do, however, we won’t give it all away, during the comedy there are some hurdles that each character experiences. These hurdles begin to cause you to realize which girl you relate the most to. Furthermore, you begin to ask yourself, “what would I do?”

From the Nights out on the town, to the intimate conversations in bed, this film has something for everyone. Male and Female.

Now! Let’s get into the film as a whole:

Story- 9/10

Fashion- 10/10

Eye candy- 10/10

Juvenile and Mystikal on Tour

Listen! No Shade! Butttttttttttt….. Wassup with the Hood Uncle Tour? On top of that it’s titled “If It Ain’t Live” Tour. Ummmmmm, what is going to be Live? Juvenile is 117 and Mystikal betta not be trying to have a Bytch “Shake It Fast” before he hurts his back. Ha!

In any case, for those who might wanna go see Uncle Juve and Uncle Mysti!

New Orleans natives and hip-hop heavy hitters take the stage for an explosive show. (Or, so they say!)

Juvenile and MystikalJuvenile brings a big selection of hits to the stage, including his anthem “Back That Azz Up,” club banger “Ha” and the his No. 1 Billboard hit “Slow Motion.” Multi-platinum selling artist Mystikal performs such iconic tracks as “Danger,” “Shake it Fast,” and “Feel Right”.

Mystikal – Multi-platinum, 3x Grammy nominee Mystikal is back with his signature gruff sound and headed straight to the top of the charts. Let’s Get Ready was released in 2000 and contained “Danger (Been So Long)”, which featured rising pop star Nivea, and was the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs number-one single in June 2001. Let’s Get Ready debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200.

Juvenile – New Orleans-based gangsta rapper Juvenile was born Terius Gray. After beginning his performing career in his teens, he released a 1995 album on Warlock titled Being Myself. He eventually crossed paths with Cash Money label owners Ronald “Suga Slim” and Brian “Baby” Williams, who issued 1996’s Solja Rags; the album became a major underground hit and set the stage for the release of 1998’s 400 Degreez. In 1999, with Juvenile’s popularity growing, Solja Rags was reissued nationally, and Warlock jumped on the bandwagon with a remixed version of Being Myself. The year ended with the release of a new studio effort, Tha G-Code, followed by Project English two years later in 2001. In 2002 he left Cash Money and formed his own collective, the UTP Playas (Uptown Project Playas), with whom he recorded a posse album, The Compilation. The album went nowhere and a year later he was back on Cash Money and releasing Juve the Great, which featured the chart-topping hit “Slow Motion.” The 2005 “Noila Clap” single from the UTP Playas was another big track, and Juvenile was ready once again to shop for a new label. As he was signing a new contract with Asylum, his Slidell, Louisiana home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. The hurricane and its grim aftermath were hot topics on his chart-topping 2006 album Reality Check. His next two albums — Cocky & Confident (2009) and Beast Mode (2010) — featured much lighter material. In 2011 he released Rejuvenation, an album primarily produced by Mannie Fresh.
