Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith reveal how Will Smith changed their lives

Making up the Flossy Posse are Jada Pinkett Smith as worrywart mom Lisa, Queen Latifah as gossip blogger Sasha and lesser-known comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish, who runs away with the movie in a breakout performance as the wildly amusing, completely uncensored and often unhinged Dina.

Director Malcolm D. Lee and the screenwriters establish the distinct personalities of the four principal women with deft economy.

Read on to find out what the critics are saying about the movie.

"I was like, 'Come pick us up, we'll make this like a regular day, we're just going to chill, '" the star shared during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night (18Jul17).

It wasn't so much anything they said or did, but the way they did it that made the game so enjoyable to watch. Along the way, the women are met with challenges and are forced to maneuver through them while relying on the love and support they have for each other.

If you see movies for a living, it's impossible to not see Girls Trip in the context of what's shaping up to be a crisis of sorts for mainstream studio comedies. She is the id, the orgone crusader, the spiritual center of the group, and absolutely the friend you'd want to have your back.

"Girls Trip" rides into theaters July 21.

But here's the thing: Girls Trip is a delight, with relatable and likable characters who make compromised choices like all human beings do.

And yet, whenever Girls Trip seems permanently lost to sentiment, there's Haddish's Dina, the true North of getting totally hammered, to lead her friends to the promised land. Scotti agrees with the aforementioned reviews, praising Girls Trip for its portrayal of sisterhood on a "real and relatable level" and "black girl magic". Hall's Ryan is a popular self-help author who is headed to New Orleans as the keynote speaker of Essence Fest.

"Whether you are a black woman who has been to Essence or a white man who doesn't know what Essence is", he said, "this is a movie that is the definition of empowerment". And although the two were going their separate ways, they provided support for one another. Latifah also delivers a wonderful amount of laughs (including an absolutely hilarious sequence involving a lamp and William Levy), proving she still has the chops after all these years. The film is sold completely on its accomplished cast alone, but its moreso held up by the unknown part of its cast in the joy that is Haddish and her performance as Dina. And when she scores some 200-year-old absinthe (from Mike Epps in a cameo), ignoring the "imbibe with caution" warning, their night out turns hallucinogenic-Girls "Trip", geddit?

"Cohen also appreciates the realistic and relatable characters, calling the group "#friendshipgoals".

Their getaway is your summer fun. "Regardless of your race or gender", Cohen adds, "you'll be laughing all the way home".

It wasn't until the Smiths arrived at the dock that they realized what a Groupon actually is!
