Jada Pinkett Smith: "I Was A Drug Dealer" When I Met Tupac

Jada Pinkett Smith admits to selling drugs during Tupac friendship entertainment jada pinkett smith tupac

Clearly, someone's being set up for a comeuppance via the titular getaway to New Orleans, where all four women will attend the Essence Festival, and where Ryan will deliver a pivotal keynote speech inevitably centering on what she learned from her Girls on their wild Trip. This is actually really amusing!

Ryan (Regina Hall) is a successful author/media mogul on the rising, Sasha (Queen Latifah) is a gossip blogger, and Lisa (Jada Pinket-Smith) is a divorced mother of two who hasn't dated in a while. The couple insisted on joining, and Haddish didn't believe them, so she smoked weed before heading out on the tour. Tiffany Haddish is raunchy, cross-the-line amusing, and simply effervescent. "Bridesmaids" and "Trainwreck", move over - there's a new kid in town. After convincing Jada that the trip would be worth it, Haddish and the Smiths boarded the boat, and were expectedly swarmed by people wanting photos, but Will calmed the crowd by saying they should all just enjoy the experience and deal with photos afterward.

Every woman knows that a tight-knit group of girlfriends is priceless. And Dina-well, she never changes, but honestly, her beautifully ratchet character doesn't need to. "I said, 'I think this is one of those movies for you'".

But the true queen of the group is Dina. Here's hoping there are more trips and humorous antics to come down the road for the Flossy Posse.

As the uninhibited, sexually aggressive, unapologetic Dina, Tiffany Haddish has the most scene-stealing bits and one-liners, and she knocks her role out of the park. Their friendship is renewed as they get in and out of trouble together.

With sexual situations, full-frontal male nudity and female competitiveness, this over-the-top, new take on how women interact is simply spectacular.

This is a total escapism movie.

For more laughs from Tiffany and Jada, be sure to catch Girls Trip when it hits theaters on Friday. It doesn't shy away from allowing these women to express themselves in whatever way their characters' personalities should. Faster than you can say "10-drink minimum", the quartet are climbing aboard a flight to New Orleans. Kate Walsh has a relatively thankless role as Ryan's agent, who tries too hard to use lingo she "looked up in Urban Dictionary", as one character puts it - but Walsh manages to give the character just a dash of heart and sweetness.

Larenz Tate is terrific as an old friend of Ryan's who still might have a thing for her. Kofi Siriboe scores some laughs as a studly college student who hooks up with Pinkett Smith's Lisa.

Race certainly is an aspect of the film. Hosted by, you guessed it, Essence, the event features plenty of musical performances and talks, and it sounds insanely fun.

The Girl Trip star - who has two children, Jaden, 19, and 16-year-old Willow, with husband Will Smith - has revealed she was into the illegal substances when she first met late rapper Tupac Shakur, who died in September 1996 after being shot four times in a drive-by shooting. While predictable, the film makes up for it in all the right ways - this comedy rivals any of its "bromance" predecessors.
