Paid in Puke S4E6: Girls Trip

On this episode, we embark on a Girls Trip with Malcolm D. Lee’s 2017 smash, written by Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver. Girls Trip stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, but for us, it’s the Tiffany Haddish show all the way. The woman positively owns the Meaningful Passages segment today. There are some Hot Probs (that’s not at all how absinthe works), but it’s mostly a riotous good time following the Flossy Posse on their New Orleans adventure. 

On the Lunchtime Poll, we talk about memorial girls trips from our pasts.

Paid in Puke S1E4: Set It Off

In this episode, we marvel at F. Gary Gray’s under-appreciated 1996 social justice drama, Set It Off, starring Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox, Jada Pinkett (nee Smith) and Kimberly Elise. Would this movie garner any Oscar attention today, or is it still too devoid of white saviors?

We also ask how you would low-key spend your bank robbery money?
