Girls Trip Review

Very Good

This movie's premise basically sounds like The Hangover with added black girl power. But it's actually a lot more than that, with themes and ideas that emerge across the board. Although what audiences will remember are the more raucous comedic moments, which gleefully dive headlong into full-on vulgarity to keep the audience laughing all the way through to the big finale. And this will also be forever remembered as the movie that made The Carmichael Show's Tiffany Haddish a star.

She plays Dina, the sassy, hard-partying member of the Flossy Posse, a group of four friends from university 25 years ago. The others are superstar self-help guru Ryan (Regina Hall), notorious gossip blogger Sasha (Queen Latifah) and workaholic single mother Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith). Worrying that their friendship is fading away with time, Ryan proposes a reunion to travel to EssenceFest in New Orleans, where she's giving the keynote speech. So off they go to let their hair down and escape their responsible lives. But Sasha has just received a paparazzi photo of Ryan's football-star husband Stewart (Mike Colter) snuggling up with an Instagram model, and Dina immediately wants revenge. On the other hand, Ryan is concerned about maintaining her public image.

There are two big themes here that fit in rather nicely with the crazed antics that pepper the movie with rude flashes of riotous hilarity. First of course is the importance of sometimes setting your chores aside and just having fun with your friends. But the deeper message is about the importance of living honestly instead of just pretending that everything is great. Ryan, Sasha and Lisa have to face these issues and deal deeply with how they live their lives. Meanwhile, Dina just keeps partying. But then, she's the film's relentless scene-stealer, and the audience wouldn't have it any other way.

Bill Cosby Might Want To Delete The Internet For A While


Bill Cosby Queen Latifah

Bill Cosby asked his Twitter followers to "meme him" on Monday (November 10, 2014), which turned out to be a horrendous idea. Instead of mocking up humorous images of the television star, the social media world used the meme generator link provided by Cosby to create all number of risqué jokes.

Bill CosbyBill Cosby is probably regretting asking fans to meme him.

"If anyone is looking for a job, the Social Media Manager position for @BillCosby is about to open up.#CosbyMeme," joked one Twitter user.

22 Jump Street Review


Very Good

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.

Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.

Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.

Queen Latifah Sings 'America The Beautiful' At 2014 Super Bowl And Reveals Plans For New Music


Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah performed a flawless and pitch perfect rendition of 'America The Beautiful' at this Sunday's (Feb 2nd) Super Bowl game at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The multi-talented entertainer was joined by the children's choir 'New Jersey Youth Chorus' before the big game's kick-off. 

The 43 year-old, who was accompanied by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell before she sang, wore a knee-length blue parka and a white turtleneck in an effort to not let the wintery conditions affect her performance.

The Rap Game Will Never Be The Same After This Dolly Parton Performance


Dolly Parton Queen Latifah Miley Cyrus

Dolly Parton recently took to the stage of Queen Latifah’s show and it was strange, to say the least. Sporting a black bodysuit and a blond afro, Parton took on a whole new rap persona, which looked awkward enough to remind everyone of their aunt at Christmas dinner.

Dolly Parton, Letterman Show
There were plenty of references to Parton's "wrecking balls."

Not to bash Ms Parton, though, the country singer rapped; "Queen Latifah, she da queen/ Of hip-hop, rap, TV and screen/ She da queen of her own hood/ But I'm the queen of Dollywood, yo," she raps. "I own my territory/ Put that in your pipe and smoke it.”
