After a break from TV and hosting one of the biggest award ceremonies in the world Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are back on the big screen as not only best friends but Sisters. We sent down 2 Sisters to the Sydney Premiere to hear their thoughts and to see if they capture what it’s like to be a sibling.
So is it any good?
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey play sisters Maura and Kate Ellis, who have to return to their old family home to clean out their childhood bedroom before the house is sold. Diaries are read, dress ups are worn, flashbacks are flashed and a plan is hatched to give Poehler’s character Maura the one big night she never had. Party chaos, big red cups, broken roofs and sexy times behind locked doors ensue.
Maya Rudolf’s Brinda is so easy to hate, Kate McKinnon’s lesbian posse are everything (bring your carabinas!) and dear god I want to punch Alex (Bobby Moynihan) in the face. This is an epic SNL (Saturday Night Live) reunion and it is wonderous. Full of mad nostalgia, sick dance moves, some of the best swears I’ve seen in cinema, Sisters does not disappoint.
Yeah, there’s some obvious jokes, lots of of physical humour and a fair bit of ‘lol young people’ but if you go in looking for silly lols, and lots of fun, Sisters delivers. Maybe it’s the part of me that feels like I’m a little too old to party like I used to, maybe it’s the big sister in me, either way it’s great and I want to see it again.
Do you have a sister? Or some sisters? You should see this film. You know what? I don’t even care if you don’t. Just bloody see it. You will cackle loudly in the cinema and people will look at you funny and it will be great.
