I’m an epic Tina Fey and Amy Poehler fan. Between their smart, hilarious banter, improv wizardry and their unmatchable friendship, it’s safe to say they’re my spirit animals. While Tina Fey has written classics like Mean Girls and 30 Rock and Amy Poehler has been busy killin’ it with Park And Rec – I had also seen Baby Mama.
I was nervous for them. I really wanted this movie to be great, but I set my expectations lower than normal to avoid being super disappointed. Luckily, this movie not only delivered, but I predict it will become a cult classic in a hurry.
Why I was skeptical:
It seemed like Tina Fey was playing it a little young to me. Or maybe because I practically study her, I didn’t feel like the role was a good fit for her. Amy Poehler played the super uptight sister, who never had the chance to really let loose at her childhood home.
That’s no spoiler alert, really. And I won’t spoil it! But I will say that this movie touches on so many relevant aspects of being adult and dealing with some realizations in such an intelligently crafted emotional rollercoaster. There were times I was belly laughing, times I was reflecting on growing up and how hard that can be sometimes, times I sympathized with each character on screen.
Overall, another smart win for the comedic duo.
It’s a movie that features a lot of the characters you love from SNL, 30 Rock and more (look out for the hilarious Bobby Moynahan who KILLS it). Sisters beyond delivers on a well-though out, smart, laugh-out-loud piece of comedic cinema and I can’t wait to see it again!
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for Sisters, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. 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.
