Tina Fey (TV’s Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock) and Amy Poehler (TV’s Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation) reunite in Sisters, the story of 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. Critics say Sisters is “hilarious, heartfelt, & downright dysfunctional.” –

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Sisters' sharp blend of pathos and vulgarity, along with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's effervescent chemistry, are more than enough to make up for the handful of laughs this coming-of-age comedy leaves on the table.

Is Sisters a good movie? No. No, it is not. Its plot manages to be both jarring (so many twists!)...

It's a bit like Animal House for girls, but not as freewheeling.

As has so often been the case when it comes to Fey's movie choices, an opportunity has been lost.

Fun but predictable comedy has swearing, drinking, sex.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Sisters is a rowdy comedy starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler about growing up, growing old, and learning how to be a better sibling. Though it does touch on some serious concerns -- such as building a life after divorce and forging a stable relationship with your child after a rocky start -- ultimately it's an over-the-top comedy with tons of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), lots of sexual innuendo and crude references (including some detailed descriptions of past sexual exploits and scene in which a man who's high uses his genitalia to paint on a wall), and frequent partying/drinking (definitely to excess) and drug use (mainly pot and a substance that mixes "Molly" with Adderall). There's also a long scene in which a character falls onto a child's toy, which results in two other characters trying to remove it from his rectum.
