Sisters Movie Review

Winter's Coming Beatches

IMDb Plot: Two sisters decide to throw one last house party before their parents sell their family home. Directed by Jason Moore. Stars Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, John Leguizamo, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena, James Brolin and Dianne Wiest.

Evidently, sisters are doin' it for themselves, even if it appears easy or (shudder) lowbrow. Sisters (the movie) is both; but it's also pretty darn funny... allowing Fey & Poehler to stretch their comedic legs, let loose and par-tay. Fey plays crazy sis... the one with lines like "Congrats on your wrestling championship," and "How can one person have two colonoscopy stories?" while Poehler delights as the sensible one. SNLer Paula Pell's story is formulaic; but odds are, you'll be laughing too much to care. I'll take a dozen+ laughs over a long line (cough, Star Wars) anytime this weekend.
