Sisters (2015)Watch full movie now
Not getting on with your sibling during lockdown? Trouble-twin besties Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have just the medicine with their 2015 comedy Sisters.
If you know the Saturday Night Live sketch queens, you’ll know what’s coming. Rude, raunchy, dirty humour that they make so cringeworthily funny you can’t not laugh. They’re the comedienne version of Will Ferrell and John C Reilly (2006’s Talladega Nights). Just better.
Maura (Amy) and her neurotic sister Kate (Tina) are told to clean out their rooms as their parents are selling their childhood home. The girls read that as “party time” and host the house party they never had as teens. While it goes pear-shaped (their crude humour is like American Pie 1, 1999), the girls end up having fond memories and bonding.
The more cringe the jokes, the better it is from the lead stars, writes Tasha Robinson of theverge.com: “Not every joke works, on paper or onscreen. But Fey and Poehler look like they’re having fun and they make it easy to get pulled along for the ride, no matter how awkward it gets.”
