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.
At Big Lots, several blue first-aid kits are bought. During a later scene, there is one blue first-aid kit and one white Target private-label kit on the table. Since the house was cleared of items before the sisters came home, this could not have been there. Also, the private-brand kit didn't exist when the girls would have lived there, so they couldn't have gotten it from their room. See more »

They really do have great chemistry.
It's not the best thing Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have ever done but it definitely had its hilarious moments. Most of the humour was completely seedy and verging on the height of inappropriateness. It's not a movie for the average person especially if you get offended easily.
All the characters were extreme stereotypes and they were complete clichés but it worked. They all played their parts well and created one extreme OMG party. Throughout the whole thing I was disgusted and slightly jealous that I will never get to attend a party like that probably ever.
It probably did go for a bit too long and there was no real storyline to the movie but I don't think that was ever the point. People are reading into it too much and were expecting it to be an intellectual tongue-in-cheek portrayal of coming to terms with yourself and father time. Absolute bullish!t. Do not tell me that you were shocked that it was lowbrow or that it wasn't peppered with heartfelt sentiment. If you thought that was what it was going to be from the trailer then you were in the wrong movie cinema.
