‘Girls Trip’ Review: The Filthiest and Funniest Comedy of the Summer

Four women, one weekend, a lot of alcohol, and more dick jokes than you can count. It’s the perfect recipe for a raunchy comedy, and makes Girls Trip the funniest, filthiest, and most feminist comedy of the summer. It’s the latest in a growing subgenre of R-rated female-led comedies, making it impossible to avoid comparisons to Bridesmaids, Trainwreck, Bad Moms, and Rough Night. But Girls Trip isn’t just notable for its foul-mouthed sense of humor; you can see women being nasty on any episode of Broad City. The latest from director Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man Holiday), tells a story that celebrates black sisterhood, female sexuality and most rewardingly, self-respect.

Florida Police Arrested a Green-Haired, Tattooed Man Resembling the Joker

Who needs Batman when you’ve got the police? Actually, considering current events and the history of police brutality, Batman would be much preferred to (and more fun than) cops. But alas, the Dark Knight must have been on vacation this week because it was the officers in uniform who apprehended the Joker’s real-life doppelganger.

Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell Get Wasted and Start a Casino in Red Band Trailer for ‘The House’

I’ve gotta admit, when I saw the first trailer for Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell’s new comedy I was sort of underwhelmed. I mean, obviously I will see anything involving these two comedic goldmines, but The House just looked kind of bland, and had me worried for another Baby Mama-esque misfire. But having watched the new Red Band trailer and laughing more than once, I’m kind of into it. Maybe I just needed a couple f-bombs from Ferrell and Poehler to secure interest.

Jordan Peele Reveals Another Darker Alternate Ending to ‘Get Out’

Considering the fact that Jordan Peele began working on Get Out in a different political climate – at the start of the Obama administration – it only makes sense that the filmmaker had multiple alternate endings under his sleeve. Back in March, Peele stopped by BuzzFeed’s Another Round podcast to chat about the evolution of the film as it changed to keep up with and properly reflect the political times. He also revealed that he initially had several alternate endings to the hit horror comedy, all of which were much darker than what happens to Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) in the film’s final moments. We already know one of those endings, but now Peele’s revealed details of a second.

Jordan Peele’s Next Social Thriller Will Have Five Times the Budget of ‘Get Out’

Who knew that a low-budget horror film from a first time filmmaker would become such a major, record-breaking hit. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out, made for a mere $4.5 million, now rests at fifth place in the 2017 box office earning $172 million. The horror film, which had a near-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, has shattered a couple of records. It’s the highest grossing film from a black director, and also holds the honor of the (oddly-specific) record as the highest grossing directorial debut from an original script. Get Out is Universal’s second biggest film of the year following The Fate of the Furious, so it’s no surprise the studio is eager to get back to work with the filmmaker.
