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.
Excluding documentaries and television appearances, this is the sixth film in which Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have appeared together. See more »
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 »
Seriously, how does this movie get rated better than a 5 by even one person?
It's just not funny! I could honestly film my own two sisters doing nothing and I would stand a better chance of laughing and having a good time. Tina Fey and Amy Pohler starring in a "party flick"? Come on, who wouldn't know that's not something either of them can pull off... But aside from that, it is NOT FUNNY, NOT AT ALL! There's zero originality here, none! Furthermore, it seems like 80-90% of the "comedies" being made today rely almost exclusively on "shock value" in order to get a laugh, and unfortunately for us all, "Sisters" is absolutely no different than the rest. It totally sucked! You would also think after working closely on SNL and being friend for so long, that Tina and Amy might be able to pull off playing sisters, but they even failed in that regard!
I really liked "Stepbrothers", and I was hoping this movie would be of that ilk, but even though "Stepbrothers" is far from being a great film, it is light-years better than this piece of rubbish!
How much further are we going to have to push the envelope if we want to keep getting laughs? What's next, movies depicting sex with animals as being funny? Scratch that, it's been done before...
