Looking back on high school, most people think about all of the crazy times they had with their friends before they all grew up and went their separate ways.

In the film Sisters, siblings Maura (Amy Poehler) and Kate (Tina Fey) decide to relive their teenage years by throwing a huge house party before their parents sell their childhood home.

If you are looking for a movie that is light- hearted, fun and will get some laughs out of you, I would recommend seeing this movie. It was fun to watch and will definitely bring out the party animal in anyone.

The comedy begins with the two sisters upset with their parents for moving to a condo and leaving the home and everything in it, to live a simple minimalist life.

While cleaning out their old bedroom that is filled with memories, the sisters decide to gather up all of their old high school classmates and throw a party that will soon destroy their home.

This party helps all of the boring adults come out of their shells and take a break from their busy lives.

Poehler and Fey together can make any movie hilarious and they are the ones who saved this movie from being completely disappointing.

In this film, the characters are complete opposites. One sister cannot hold a job and is always dealing with her daughter disappearing, while the other is a nurse who tries way too hard to help everybody around her.

Despite these differences, Poehler’s and Fey’s chemistry on screen is admirable and makes the movie a lot more loveable.

Is this the best movie that they have done? No. Is it funny and entertaining? Definitely.

This film is not supposed to be taken seriously. If you walk into the theatre with high expectations, then you will more than likely leave disappointed.

The jokes and second hand embarrassment throughout the movie are so bad that you cannot help but laugh.

SNL writer Paula Pell did a great job writing a film that is fun for every body but I wish Poehler and Fey had a larger role in the writing of the film and had more of their humor in it, I feel like the movie would have been a lot better.

Sisters is a movie that someone goes to see for fun with their friends, laughs, and then never watches it or thinks about it ever again. It is your basic party movie but Poehler and Fey both make it worth watching.
