Sisters (2015)


Tina Fey
Amy Poehler

Directed by Jason Moore

I do not know what I enjoyed most, the wonderful chemistry between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler or the bowl full of laughs I experienced while watching this movie.
This late 2015 comedy film is one that will slip past many who have been glued to the trending videos and talks of Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). Like Tarantino’s complain of his The Hateful Eight (2015) suffering from cinemas not wanting to show the movie because of Star Wars, I guess many movies that came in late 2015, would have suffered being overlooked, even if they came in somedays before Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

Sisters is a comedy film written by Paula Pell (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock and Bridesmaid (2011)). Pell also worked with Fey and Poehler on Saturday Night Live and with the former on the series 30 Rock.
Pell’s story is not great, but the movie delivers if you are watching it in search of a good laugh. The pair of Fey and Poehler made everyone else in the movie not matter much as they were the only people worth seeing in this comic flick.

The movie plot introduces the two leads functioning as appropriate in their natural habitat. We see Maura (Amy Poehler) trying to control and fix the lives of her sister and parents. Then we have Kate (Tina Fey) who is shown to be irresponsible and not matured enough to be a parent, which she is.

The pair were greeted by a surprising news from their parents who wants to sell their house and has asked their daughters to come clear out their room.

Both sisters decided to have a party as a last goodbye to the house, but for different reasons. Maura agreed to the party to loosen up a little and Kate agreed to it because she wanted to ruin her parents plan of selling their house.

Also in attendance in this movie is the pair James Brolin and Dianne Wiest (Bucky and Deana Ellis) who you will see also playing a couple in the new TV sitcom Life in Pieces on CBS. Also worth mentioning we have Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaid (2011)) and John Cena (the wrestler).

For me this is a good movie to see, it is a vulgar comedy so maybe you will have to leave the kids at home to go see this. The movie is not much of a box office success, but it was met by moderate to positive acceptance from critics.
