Girls Trip follows four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans to partake in the wild atmosphere of the annual Essence Festival.
Starring Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, the ensemble cast exhibits great chemistry and comic timing, but it’s Haddish who is the movie’s breakout star. She could soon be one of the big names in film for the foreseeable future.
