Girls Trip, the new girls-just-wanna-have-fun flick starring Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall and Tiffany Haddish, has been on a promo tour like no other. It’s been a full year of the production powers that be pushing this Hangover-meets-Girlfriends (shoutout to Joan Clayton, aka Tracee Ellis Ross) mashup and then ... Rough Night came along.
This similar-sounding/feeling/looking film stars a bunch of white actresses and Zoë Kravitz, and immediately after seeing the movie poster, many publications made the claim that there was now a white-girl version of Girls Trip.
While The Root raced through the streets of sunny Miami for the American Black Film Festival, we got a chance to sit down with Girls Trip’s producer, Will Packer; director, Malcolm D. Lee; and star Regina Hall, and we asked them about the comparison. Malcolm D. Lee kept it all the way real. Peep the video above.
