When four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling, and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.
Regina Hall has her life together. Dubbed the new coming of Oprah she sells books and a lifestyle stating that women can have it all and that she is proof. Work hard, play hard, love hard. Everything is perfect.
Of course it’s not. Life is never perfect and people who try to sell that are, duh, selling something.
Deciding that what she really needs is to hook back up with her friends she invites them all to the Essence Festival in New Orleans and she rediscovers what really matters in life. Along the way they drink a ton of booze, ogle a lot of men, fight, make up, and just have a great time together.
This movie was great. It showed so well what it’s like when a bunch of women get together, without being degrading or disparaging. It was raunchy but the jokes were funny and not normally made at someone’s expense. I really enjoyed it.
