If Bridesmaids (qv) was the female version of The Hangover (qv), then Girls Trip (no apostrophe) is the African-American equivalent. Unfortunately, it's not very funny, unless you fall into the very limited target group at which it's marketed.
I'm very much outside of this demographic, so can only review it from my own perspective, but the majority of jokes revolve around the main cast being A: Female and B: Black. Side-splitting. The remaining jokes appear to be either about how big cocks can be or similar puerile, infantile female-variants of fart humour. The story even has a bit of time to rant about cultural misappropriation as though the producers took a backhander from Buzzfeed.
When Jada Pinkett Smith threw her childish tantrum before the 88th Academy Awards and demanded that Hollywood studios make more films that appease her, is this really what she meant?
The funniest thing about Girls Trip is that there was a heavy campaign for it to be considered at the Oscars.
