Synopsis
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for Sisters, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. 

Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need. Fey produces the comedy alongside Jay Roach (Meet the Parents series) and John Lyons (Austin Powers in Goldmember), and Poehler executive produces alongside Jeff Richmond and Brian Bell from a script by Paula Pell (TV’s Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock).

No ones does it better than dynamic duo Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!

Let’s face it, it’s all about the wickedly funny BFF of Hollywood - Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who are intelligent and funny women who made us peed in our pants or cried tears of laughter on screen. 

Pairing up as on-screen sisters for a movie sounds like the great decision for both are A-list comediennes who definitely know their materials. With Sisters, it is pretty fair to say that it isn’t their best work, but one that still delivers an honest amount of goofy gags. 

Directed by Jason Moore, his second feature after Pitch Perfect, Sisters tells a story about two 40-something siblings, Kate and Maura, who holds a final party at their parents’ house before it’s being sold to a young couple. They invite all their past schoolmates for a reunion via Facebook, no less, and turned the party so wild that it becomes too much to handle. 

Kate, played by Fey, the elder sister of the two, promises to be the ‘party mum’ for once, in exchange for divorced sister Maura to get laid. And with that title comes with sacrifices - to be sober. The party started as an honest, laid back reunion but when drugs came into the picture, a wild and crazy celebration ensues. Needless to say, the house was pretty much ruined. 

Sisters feels like a lengthy stretched-out SNL sketch, which is funny in general but there’s only so far the comedy romp can go in a 90-minute film. The screenplay is a simple one, with a fitting setup for the characters to grow and explore. It's clear that director Moore has given his cast the freedom to improvise and try different lines that fit best to the narrative. And this comes as a natural thing when you have Fey, Poehler, Maya Rudolph and the rest who understands comedy. There will be a few one-lines that is bound to crack you up, or even an entire scene (name-pronunciation scene takes the cake) that gives will have you in stitches. 

With an M18 rating, there are bound to be foul-mouthed jokes and a few sexual gags or two, but it’s for sure that these feminists in real life are staying far away from the stupid dick jokes you often see in theatres… and thank god for that! 

It isn’t the best comedy script nor one that leaves you wanting more, but a decent blues-chaser film to put back that smile on a dull day.

Leave it to Fey and Poehler for a knee-slapping time with Sisters..
