Anybody with kids probably is in the same situation my husband and I are in. You never get to go to the movies. So when the kids go to bed, your living room becomes your movie theater. You finally get to watch everything you have been waiting to see on pay-per-view.
That is exactly what we did as soon as Sisters came out to rent on pay-per-view. After my husband and I bathed and fed the kids, we popped some popcorn and had a movie night.
We didn’t really know much about Sisters other than it was a comedy and obviously was going to be about two sisters played by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
The plot is great. Two parents are tired of their grown daughters’ way of life and are ready to pass on the torch and live simply. They sell the girls’ childhood home to a snooty city couple, and the girls do not take it well. Trying to run off the couple and have one last night in their home, they throw a huge party and completely trash the place.
The party causes all kinds of chaos, but I won’t spoil the ending. The main thing that makes the movie funny is the sisters. Fey and Poehler play two sisters who are the complete opposite. The younger sister is, and always has been, a “goody-goody,” while the older sister has a teenage daughter and still has a bit of a party streak.
One of the sisters crushes on a neighbor guy, and the guy who plays that role (Ike Barinholtz) is not an “eye-catcher,” but for some reason, they make a cute couple. John Cena plays a drug dealer, and he is right on point.
Sisters is funny and has a good story line. I don’t know if I would recommend it to my grandparents due to the bad language. My grandmother would find the language, sex and drugs very distasteful.
Overall, Sisters is a comedy that actually made us laugh and still has a great ending and message. I recommend it to people who think stupid is funny. It isn’t my favorite comedy of all time, but I would watch it again.
