Girls Trip Dreamfilm Review by John:
I have walked out of 2 movies in my entire life. This is the 2nd. considering how expensive going to the movies has become it takes a lot for me to get up out of my seat and say my time is more valuable than my investment. I stayed a little over an hour thinking somehow it might get better. The people in the audience I was in all laughed at every joke so I came to realize that I was not the target audience and the jokes would continue on this level. This was the story of a ”girls trip” with old college friends. The trailer looked pretty cute and I always liked Queen Latifah, Jayda Pinket Smith…so I thought this could be another Bridesmaids or something vulgar but cleverly vulgar (I’m not against vulgarity).This movie was unbelievably juvenile. And not like that’s such a bad thing. Juvenile humor CAN be quite hilarious (if it’s clever), which imho this was definitely not. In Bridesmaids ”Annie” took valium chased with hard liquor and questioned the flight attendant as to why his name was ”Stove” (even though it was Steve) and drunkenly told him that ”this is the 90’s. It’s civil rights” and he told her ”you’re in the wrong decade”. Yeah, this was juvenile too, but imo it was very clever and hilarious.
