Jada Pinkett Smith: "I Was A Drug Dealer" When I Met Tupac

Jada Pinkett Smith:

A "Bridesmaids"-meets-"The Hangover" comedy, "Girls Trip" is a raunchy, good-hearted celebration of friendship". The movie is about four women who travel to New Orleans for the weekend. There's always a struggle between what people think of you and who you really are.

Jada Pinkett Smith got married when she was 25 to Suicide Squad star, Will Smith, since 31st December 1997.

"I met my wife when she was on a girls' trip", he mused, adding that the movie offers something for everyone. The Dome also serves as a setting for a number of scenes - including one in which Sean "Diddy" Combs pulls actress Tiffany Haddish on-stage during his 2016 Essence performance, all while "Girls Trip" cameras rolled.

"Girls Night" also features appearances by Larenz Tate, as an old friend of the women who has a spark with Ryan, and Kofi Siriboe, Ne-Yo, Morris Chestnut and P. Diddy - all created to please the ladies.

"She's like, 'I got this Groupon, Ima go on a swamp trip, '" Pinkett Smith recalls, before admitting to Fallon that she had "no idea" what Groupon was. Sasha (Latifah) is a struggling journalist, who has some unresolved issues with Ryan.

All of the actresses are very amusing, but Haddish's Dina stands out, especially her outrageous rant about all the ways she'd like to torture Ryan's straying husband. Numerous people on the tour asked for photos and cheered when the couple got on the boat.

"Girls Trip", a "Bridesmaids"-meets-"The Hangover" comedy from Malcom D. Lee ("The Best Man"), is a raunchy, good-hearted celebration of friendship; as amusing as it needs to be, and possibly funnier". Hall is the dramatic backbone of the film and really carries much of the heavier material "Girls Trip" has to offer, but still delivers a lot of laughs. There are several celebrity guest appearances in Girls Trip and the true vibe of the Essence Festival is captured beautifully.

The capacity crowd roared at Packer's allusion to the 2015 hip hop drama's local box-office triumph - Regal Atlantic Station was tops in ticket sales during the movie's opening weekend - and seemed more than ready to boost the "Girls Trip" bottom line as well. And for me, comedy can be empty if you don't care about the characters. Maybe you've never danced in the middle of Bourbon Street with the band. "I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book".

They portray the members of the Flossy Posse - four brash and sassy women who bonded as college roommates but haven't seen each other for years. That isn't on the menu for the black women in "Girls Trip", who, despite being fictional also exist in our world and so presumably would have a much harder time giggling their way out of spilling blood. What an incredible time in our current world to see four lovely black women on the big screen, reaffirming the importance of preserving true friendships. We had such a great time!

"OK, so what had happened was, Jada had invited me to dinner with her and Will Smith and I thought, 'Ooh, this it".
