Tiffany Haddish in 'Girls Trip'

When we meet her, she's yelling about chlamydia; we leave her, she's telling her friends that she wants to make a dick pic her wallpaper, "and not on my phone." (Don't even ask about the grapefruit.) In between those two lines, you get to watch comedian Tiffany Haddish become a bona fide movie star. Malcolm D. Lee's movie about old college friends getting together for a long weekend in New Orleans because of the chemistry between its leads – don't sleep on what Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith are bringing to the party. But it's Haddish that kicks this comedy into the stratosphere; she's the movie's raging, binge-drinking, bar-fighting id. There are points where this movie can not even contain her. Even the way she puts air quotes around the phrase "place of work" is hilarious.
