Storyline

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.

CHAPPY WATCHED: Sisters
3 February 2016 | by chappywatchedSee all my reviews

If you put Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in a film together, I'm going to see it!

The two of them separately are awesome but when you put them together it's gold andfr-0 Sisters is no different.

Don't get me wrong; it's predictable and the story isn't the best but the laughs make up for that! Fey and Poehler were amazing and so funny in this as was Maya Rudolph.

Have to give kudos to John Cena for making yet another hilarious cameo in a comedy movie.

I got a bit boring in the last act when all the drama kicked in and I didn't think the ending was too great either.

It may be predictable but this is still a very entertaining movie, if you liked these ladies on SNL or any of their other work; you should see this.

Will definitely watch this again and may even buy it when it goes on a sale.

CHAPPY THINKS Tina Fey and Amy Poehler need to star in a movie together at least once a year!
