A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
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.
Really, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and this is as good as they can do, this movie is for teenage boys, young pubescent kids. What a disappointment. I expected so much more from two comediennes, but this is a low low. Drugs, penises, boobs, and more f- words than necessary. Come on, comedy doesn't need to smack you in the face, again and again and again and again. James Brolin and Dianne Weist and the young actress playing Tina's daughter, showed just enough restraint, much needed by everyone else, to be the only bright spots in this movie. Raise the bar, Tina and Amy!!! They could have offered more reasons to root for either sister, but did not. Amy and Tina, please, I know you can do better, because I've seen you do better. Don't settle for making the lowest common denominator laugh. Elevate your efforts
