Salma Hayek, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Porter and Rose Byrne, are the stars of Like A Boss, a new Miguel Arteta directed comedy about two friends who decide to start a beauty company together.

A key challenge being that one is more practical, while the other’s focus is mainly on earning her fortune so she can live a lavish lifestyle…

Fingers crossed for a great result because I really do like the cast I’m quite sure I’ll enjoy the colourful costumes too.

Jennifer Coolidge, Ari Graynor, Billy Porter, Karan Soni, Catherine Parker, Jessica St. Clair, Jimmy O. Yang and Jacob Latimore also star.

Like A Boss Release Dates: January 10th, 2019 (US), February 7th, 2019 (UK)…

Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Melissa MacCarthy and Domhnall Gleeson are the stars of new crime / drama The Kitchen.

Directed by Andrea Berloff, it’s the story of the wives of New York gangsters in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s, as they continue to operate their imprisoned husbands’ rackets…

I’m in for the Widows (2018) vibes. I’ll of course be comparing the two movies. Which will I like more? I wonder…

The Kitchen Release Dates: August 9th, 2019 (US); September 20th, 2019 (UK)…

NIGHT SCHOOL (2018): The Thing I liked…

Night School, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish ‘s comedy about adult troublemakers forced to get ready for the GED exam during night classes is not all that I’d hoped.

My very favourite moment in the whole nearly two hour duration of the movie is the beginning. Reason being, that’s when it had the most promise. Unfortunately though, from that point on my interest in the characters just decreased more and more as the film continued.

I definitely think that the movie should have been at least 20 minutes shorter. I like what it had to say about second chances and how instrumental the right teacher can be in getting the best out of seemingly difficult students. Nevertheless, I wanted the film to have my whole attention, without my mind wandering as it played. It’s therefore not as funny or engaging as the trailer had me hoping.

Give it a chance if you’re a big enough fan of Haddish, Hart and Taran Killam Just know that you probably won’t consider it one of their best movies.

Nobody’s Fool is a new comedy / drama directed by Tyler Perry and starring Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, Whoopi Goldberg and Omari Hardwick.

Haddish plays a woman released from prison who helps her sister find find the identity of her catfish…

The plot certainly appears to be a little thin. However, the key reason I want to see this is Whoopi Goldbergs performance. I’m sure Haddish will be entertaining. Though, how much fun I have will likely depend quite a bit on how much of a ‘clone of her Girls Trip (2017) character’ this new role will be.

Nobody’s Fool Release Dates: November 2nd, 2018 (US); Novemeber 23RD, 2018 (UK)…

In new comedy Night School, Kevin Hart plays a member of a group of grown up troublemakers who are forced to attend night school in hopes that they’ll pass the GED exam to finish high school.

Tiffany Haddish, Taran Killam and Mary Lynn Rajskub also star…

I’m giving this one a chance in hopes that I’ll be plenty amused. Director of The Best Man (1999) and The Best Man Holiday (2013),  Michael D. Lee is in charge. So the hope is very much alive.

Additional cast includes Keith David, Ben Schwartz, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Bresha Webb and Jacob Batalon.

Night School Release Dates: September 28th, 2018 (US & UK)…

GIRLS TRIP (2017): The Thing I Like

Girls Trip is a Michael D. Lee (The Best Man Holiday (2013) directed comedy about lifelong friends getting together, in New Orleans for a fun-filled few days after several years apart. 

The film’s main stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish all got to shine in their respective roles. However, as everyone has been saying, it is indeed Haddish who absolutely stole the show with her loyal and rather ‘out there’ character – thanks no doubt to her impressive comic timing and delivery.

Girls Trip features a healthy amount of outrageous fun to keep you engaged. As hilarious as it all was, what I loved most about this movie is the way the story of love and general sisterhood between the four friends is handled. A sisterhood enriched with a certain level of realism, particularly in regards to the relationship between Latifah and Hall’s characters, that I wasn’t expecting.

I liked that New Orleans was the setting for this story, if only because it reminded me that I need to make it to that place on day. The setting and the music also had me thinking of Chef (2014), a movie I love and recommend, not just because part of it is also set in New Orleans.

Watch Girls Trip because there’s truth in all the positive feedback.
