'Girls Trip' earns big at the weekend box office

"Girls Trip", which is billed as a comedy, doesn't just deliver on its laugh-out-loud scenes, but also carries resounding messages about black women engaging in self-care and sisterhood, something Hollywood has not always embraced ― but should.

The amusing flick exceeded box office expectations this weekend and ultimately had the best opening for an R-rated comedy since 2015.

The bigger surprise, however, may be the success of Girls Trip, a comedy following Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett-Smith during an adventure promised by the film's title. And the last time an R-rated comedy debuted to $30 million or more was in summer 2015 when "Ted 2" opened to $33.5 million, and Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck" to $30.1 million.

Notably, "Girls Trip" is another example for studios that yes, people will go see female-driven films as well as movies with diverse casts, especially if they are done well. "Girls Trip" now has an 88 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes' "Tomatometer" and a 90 percent audience score.

If you're ready for raunchy, R-rated fun, "Girls Trip" is in theaters now.
