WHAT HAP­PENS IN NEW OR­LEANS ... STAYS THE DIS­TANCE, US, 121 MIN Rest as­sured you won’t be for­get­ting what hap­pens in Girls Trip any time soon. More im­por­tantly, it is funny. Very, very funny at times. The set-up is stan­dard let’sget-the-old-gang-to­gether-for-the-week­end fare: a quar­tet of former col­lege BFFs known as The Flossy Posse re­con­vene at a New Or­leans mu­sic fes­ti­val. Ryan (Regina Hall) is now a next-gen Oprah-style me­dia star. Lisa (Jada Pin­kett Smith) is a strait­laced sin­gle mum. Sasha (Queen Lat­i­fah) is a low-level gos­sip blog­ger. And then there’s Dina (an in­cred­i­ble break­out per­for­mance by Tiffany Had­dish), a lusty, gusty whirl­wind. What fol­lows is an earthy, provoca­tive, graphic and un­de­ni­ably amus­ing raunch­fest which gives The Hang­over a run for its money in its best (and bluest) scenes.
