Girls Trip (2017) **REVIEW**

When it comes to an all female cast of comedy I’m all for it. It all started with Bridesmaides and bunch of all female cast comedies have been since. And Girls Trip isn’t any different, the four ladies manage to nail the film.

We got four friends; Ryan, Sasha, Lisa & Dina. Been friends since college. But somewhere along the line they lost contact over the years. Ryan is the very successful one, she wrote a successful book and now she might up for a TV deal. Things seems to go well for her. She is going to appear at a festival in New Orleans and she invites her friends along to reunite. And it won’t be a dance on roses that’s for sure.

They meet up at the airport and already then you can tell some things might not be forgotten or forgiven but their weekend goes as planned. We got Sasha the journalist, Lisa the mom & Dina the party girl with a loud mouth. As the weekend goes along, trying to convince Lisa its time to let loose and not be a mom for a weekend isn’t easy, specially with the clothes she chosen to wear. But the girls to their thing and everyone seems to relax and have fun. Just one little detail, Ryan’s life isn’t at perfect as everyone seems to think it is. Her husband have been sleeping around with a Instagram model and Ryan’s friends won’t have that done to their friend. So… Dina attacks and they end up being kicked out of the hotel and need to stay somewhere less… appealing.

So the girls won’t let that ruin their weekend of fun, alot of stuff happens. Like getting high, Lisa finds a man for a weekend. Sasha struggles with her company and it about to go in flames. Ryan struggles to keep it together. Dina.. she just don’t care and goes along for the ride.

I didn’t have high hopes for the film when I saw the trailer but I decided to see it anyway and I was surprised. It’s funny with an good story. Gives you insight to the girl gang. Yes, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it. Jokes are  hilarious and well played out.

Bad Moms (2016) **REVIEW**

When it comes to hard working moms they will do everything for their children but just sometimes they need to relax and do something for them. A relaxed and rested mom is a good mom.

Amy is the mother of two children, boy and a girl, also married to this lazy and selfish guy she met as teenager and they married early. She finds him masturbating on cam with another girl and decides to kick him out and change her ways. She’s stressed out with work and the kids expect her to do everything and not help out. Until Amy changes her ways. She befriends two women, one is a partying mom with and the other is a mom of 4 who’s overworked and stressed. How could this film be funny?

Amy decided to go against the “perfect moms” and become the PTA President and now all hell breaks lose as she also tries to handle her kids. The script is brilliant and casting is even better. We see some hilarious scene’s where all these women just try and it doesn’t work out. Like Amy trying to find a man for the night at a bar but fails so she ends up kissing the hot widow guy from the school her kids go to.

Bad Mom’s is one of the best comedies coming from 2016 with an all female cast – I’d say it’s hilarious and loved every moment of it. Don’t slack, get your laugh on now!

Actors: Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, Kristen Bell, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith, Annie Mumolo, Oona Laurence,  Jay Hernandez and many more.

Magic Mike XXL (2015) **REVIEW**

We do remember the first Magic Mike and we got to see how it was to be a male stripper with Channing Tatum in the lead. And it was one hell of a film for the ladies and then… Magic Mike XXL came out last year. And boy the second one is 10x better, stronger, funnier and SEXIER! I’m not going to lie. When I first saw this second film, I couldn’t stop giggling at part because you know – Channing Tatum and his dance move that will make your heart skip a beat, make you get all sorts of hot and have that giggle fit that only ladies get when a very attractive man comes around.

Mike is now the CEO of his own company and liking what he got at the moment. And then an old friend calls him up and he is taken to a motel thinking it’s a wake. But it’s a party and gets invited to come a long to the stripper convention. Before he makes his mind up, Pony comes on the radio. Mike starts to smile and he does his little routine in his work shop and just like that, his mind was made up and he seeks out the boys before they leave and join them on the trip to the convention.

Mike talks them into having a new fresh routine and they are little skeptic but he manage to win them over but, they’re MC gets hurt and now they need a new one so Mike and the guys seeks out Rome in Savannah. A MC Mike used to work with but it’ll take a lot of convincing to get her to join.

So question here is.. Mike and the guys will they be able to bring something new for the convention? And the MC? Will she come with? You already know the answer because films like this are a lot predictable but that doesn’t mean Magic Mike XXL is one of the best films of 2015 and it’s all for the ladies to enjoy and giggle.

You see actors like Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Gabriel Iglesias aka Fluffy, Matt Bomer,  Adam Rodriguez, Jada Pinkett Smith and many more.
