Sisters Kate and Maura Ellis are summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house, much to their dismay. 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.
Another 2 hour flick!!! After sitting for 2 hours and having about a total of 12 minutes of a few smiles and giggles, your butt is going to be blistered with frustration.
Sisters is not a bad movie! It isn't an unfunny movie. It's a good movie but - for me - Amy Poehler, Tina Fey just didn't pull the laughs out of the bag as they do in skits on television. Plus it's two hours long and all you get out of that two hours is occasional smiles & giggles. You get tired of sitting and waiting for the big moment of really laughing, which unfortunately never showed up. The big long party scene becomes just that - too long - and the sight gags and shenanigans of the 40 plus year old participants never jells into fun for the viewer.
Sorry but this flick is just another example of Hollywood cashing in on hot popularity. This time it's the team of Amy Poehler & Tina Fey being offered, no doubt, a fantastic payoff to appear in a rather bloated production of a very thin plot line of a story.
I'm sure it will be on DVD very soon!
