+ high-res version

Watched: 19 December

Some have found uproarious comedy and many laughs here, which is great, because overall 2017 has been a very lean year for funny films. The four protagonists – on holiday in New Orleans – are all likeable enough, and the film certainly benefits from a couple of standout performances, but I just didn’t click with it – Girls Trip hits all the same beats as countless other supposedly raunchy and offensive comedies, and it shoehorns in its quota of cameo appearances with a disappointing predictability. I didn’t see much originality in relation to the comic set pieces either, but I guess it just isn’t for me and I’ll move on accordingly. (**)
