Girls Trip is the Movie I Never Thought I Needed to Watch
Watching the movie Girls Trip was amazing. Yes, it was hilarious and truly one of the best movies I’ve seen in a LONG time but it was also beautifully made. To see 4 beautiful Black women come together on a movie screen to portray having a great time and enjoying one another’s company was so refreshing to see. To see 4 beautiful Black women portray a sisterhood and go through rough times but STILL keep their friendship first was too much for words. To watch these 4 beautiful Black women be successful in life was the icing on the cake.
People don’t understand how much of a big deal this is. People only think Black actors/actresses can be on movies if they’re playing slaves, are from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, speak in Ebonics all the time, are drug dealers, etc. so to see Black women portray a different side of Black livelihood is the most beautiful thing in the world. These type of movies are almost always reserved for White casts so yes, I got emotional after this movie was over.
So thank you Kenya Barris, Tracy Oliver, and Erica Rivinoja for writing it.
Thank you William Packer for producing it.
Thank you William D. Lee for producing and directing it.
And thank you to Tiffany Haddish, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, and Jada Pinkett Smith for making the characters come to life and making it soooo relatable to millions of young women around the world.
This movie deserves all the praises in the world for not only being extremely hilarious and fun to watch but for breaking down barriers and proving to Hollywood that Black people are multi-dimensional in all formats!
