Watch: Queen Latifah Talks NOLA-Set 'Girls Trip’ With Jimmy Fallon


On Monday night, Queen Latifah appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to discuss Girls Trip, her “uncuffed” rated-R movie. Set during Essence Fest, Girls Trip follows a group of college friends played by Latifah, Regina Hall, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith as they run wild through New Orleans. 

 

“When you have a party in New Orleans, you have a party,” said Fallon, Latifah’s Taxi (remember that movie?) co-star about the Big Easy-set film. 

 

“Well yeah, you gotta love a place that sells drive-through daiquiris,” laughed Latifah. "Set the tone, let’s go!”

 

Ahead of the movie's widespread release this Friday, one of the movie’s scenes that has already gone viral is Jada Pinkett Smith urinating on Bourbon Street crowds. Check out that scene, and more of the interview between Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon below: 

 

Girls Trip will be playing at theaters including The Broad Theater, Theatres at Canal Place, and various AMC locations.
