“Laugh my friend, for laughter ignites a fire within the pit of your belly and awakens your being.” ~ Stella & Blake
This certainly was the case tonight! You know that hearty, belly laugh that you just cannot control? Yep, that!
I was very kindly invited to the screening of the new movie ‘Girls Trip’ by the lovely people over at Movie House Cinemas. I have to be honest and admit that prior to receiving the invite, I actually hadn’t heard of the movie (shameful in hindsight, I know!)
I headed over to Movie House Cinemas and had a lovely welcome by the Cool FM team, as well as some of the team from Filthy McNasty’s who were serving some amazingly refreshing lemon tasting cocktails!
The movie stars the amazing Queen Latifah as Sasha, Jada Pinkett Smith as Lisa, Regina Hall as Ryan and Tiffany Haddish as the hilariously funny Dina!
I always think if a movie has well known actors / actresses, we’re on the way to a good movie and tonight was no exception! There also was guest appearances from Mariah Carey and P*Diddy.
So many times throughout the movie, I was genuinely shocked at the hilariousness of what was going on – it was definitely laugh out loud funny and you know when the majority of the audience is laughing together, it’s a good movie.
I’m not giving anything away about but I have to say, Girls Trip was one of the funniest movies I’ve watched in a long time. It’s like a mixture between The Hangover and Bridesmaids and it’s the perfect antidote for anyone who needs a good laugh.
My only regret when watching this movie is that I didn’t have my “Flossy Posse” with me to watch it – I recommend any group of girlfriends to make a date in the diary to see this amazing, funny movie. For me, it’s the perfect Summer Movie.
