Home / Comedy / Sisters


Tina Fey and Amy Poehler play 40+ year old sisters who discover their parents are selling the family home; the sisters decide to have one last party before the house is gone. Of course, the story is of a party that goes horribly awry. What a strange movie. Fey and Poehler are two very funny people who are usually very funny together. I would say this movie is definitely not their best gig. There are some very funny places in the movie that are worth a few laughs; the humor is very raunchy but doesn’t “hit” consistently. By the end, the party was too long and the ending dragged out longer than it needed. Having written that, it was a fun way to spend an evening with 3 of the ladies I work with; this is what made it all worthwhile (and I think we all left shaking our heads). But I will give this one a thumbs down because of the wasted opportunity and the laughs that should of kept rolling but did not. If you go see it, grab some friends (who will ensure that it is not 2 hours that you will never get back), turn way down the expectations, grab the popcorn (and wine if that is your thing – maybe lots of wine), turn off your brain, and enjoy the good laughs when they happen.
