THE MOGUL MINUTE
Honestly, every time I think about this movie nothing but pure joy and laughter comes across my mind. I covered a private screening of the film Tuesday night in Philly. The the theater was full of women and a few guys too. The excitement for the highly anticipated film was definitely felt in the theater. I brought one of my favorite girls ( my grandmother ) as my special guest. I figured it would be interesting to hear her thoughts on the film since we are 64 years apart. Might I say it was absolutely hilarious to watch her reaction to certain scenes ( just thinking about it makes me want to put crying emojis continuously in this space) . Anyways, Girls Trip is for every women just like the 1978 hit single "I'm Every Women" written by Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson , Performed by the great Chaka Khan and then remixed by the incredible Whitney Houston in 1992. This film is exactly what we needed in this generation. Each character depicted a different relative story that each lady could relate to and yet they all shared some similarities. I'm definitely not going to spoil the movie for you in this review because I want you to have the best time seeing this beautiful cast of amazing women and handsome talented men. All in all this movie is going to a favorite new-school classic. One things for sure I have to go to New Orleans and Essence Festival with my girls. From beginning to end the theater was full of laughter , smiles, and outburst from different audience members during different scenes. However, we all had a great time. I also met some really cool ladies at the screening. That's what it's about ! This film was needed. The director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer did an outstanding job along with the writers Kenya Barris , Tracy Oliver, from a story by Erica Rivinoja, who based the script off their own experiences of going out with her girlfriends . Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith, Larenz Tate Mike Colter, and Kofi Siriboe star n the film. You're in for a non-stop treat of sugar, spice, and everything right with this film. So let's go break the box office and support these amazing entertainers. So grab your girls , mom , aunt, cousins, sisters , or grandma and get the theater July 21, 2017 (opening day ) and go see "Girls Trip" .
