But this summer, and this year to date, Universal can relish the fact that they bucked a downward box office trend with their sleeper hit Girls Trip ...

I wanted to see this over Rough Night for sure. I only see a handful of movies a year in the theater and this summer it ended up being The Big Sick and Baby Driver. Kinda wish I went to this instead of Baby Driver. It was fun, but not as fun as I thought an Edgar Wright movie should be.
