    Funny Flick

    The Saturday Night Live (SNL) alumni are back...well, three of them at least. If you like the sketches from that iconic show which has provided the movie world with comedic actors ranging from Steve Martin to Eddie Murphy, you should enjoy this raunchy, smutty and crude comedy. It's definitely not for everyone's tastes with jokes likely to offend conservative viewers. Just like comedy skits from these types of TV shows, some of the jokes succeed resulting in uproarious laughter while others produce a mere snigger or nothing at all. At close to two hours, the movie tends to overstay its welcome and could have benefited from a 15-20 minute edit to eliminate the jokes that didn't work. The titular sisters are Maura (Amy Poehler) and Kate (Tina Fey). Both Ellis women are experiencing setbacks in their lives. Maura is coming off a divorce while Kate simply refuses to grow up even though she is the mother of a teenage daughter (Madison Davenport). They don't need any more complications but another one arises when the Ellis' parents (James Brolin and Dianne Weist) Skype Maura to inform her that they intend to sell the family home. Maura's job is to entice Kate to return home and together, they must clean out their bedroom which has remain untouched since they moved out of home. When they discover that their home has already been sold and their parents are now staying in a retirement home, they plan a farewell party at their family home before they must vacate the premises. There's nothing subtle about this comedy here, mainly vulgarity of the highest order. Since this viewer doesn't mind adult comedies, there wasn't anything offensive although it's easy to see why many people wouldn't like this movie. Dirty jokes aside, the story does have something to say about the family unit but luckily doesn't preach to its audience. Sisters occasionally feels like an extended sketch comedy show, albeit raunchy in nature. Jason Moore is the director and his only other directing credit is Pitch Perfect, which is tame compared to the humour in Sisters. Paula Pell is the writer who has mainly written gags for SNL so this is probably the main reason why it feels like sketch comedy at times. It might frustrate some viewers to see some overacting from several cast members to extend the life of a particular joke but that can sometimes be representative of comedy sketches. When the jokes do fire, the overstated gestures, expressions and voices actually help. Maya Rudolph is one of the actresses who fits in this category of overacting at times but when she pulls it off, she is absolutely hilarious. She plays Brinda, the childhood enemy of the Ellis girls who hasn't been invited to their party but gatecrashes it anyway. Another larger than life character is Alex (Bobby Moynihan), the nerd who runs rampant when he takes some drugs supplied by drug dealer, Pazuzu (John Cena). Watch out for Greta Lee who plays Hae- Won, the Korean beauty consultant who steals some of the laughs from her more illustrious co-stars. Poehler, Fey and Rudolph are the ex-cast members of SNL and they seem to be having a riotous time, with their antics pleasing viewers who enjoy this type of comedy. Don't take it seriously, open your mind and go along for the ride, you're bound to experience more than a few laughs and even more so if you're a fan of gutter humour

    Non-stop laughs

    I love both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I think they're comical geniuses, and work really well together, especially in this much needed comedy. I feel like I haven't laughed so frequently throughout a movie in a long time! Their timing and delivery of certain lines are priceless... I typically buy movies I feel will have some replay value, and after I rented and watched "Sisters" for the first time, I practically could have watched the whole thing again the next day, so it was a no brainer purchase for me, especially with all the bonus features like the gag reel and deleted scenes. Plus, this edition provides the blu-ray, DVD, and access to a digital HD copy, so you get your bang for your buck along with all the laughs. If you like these two talented and funny people, you'll enjoy this movie, hopefully as much as I did! I'm not good at describing what movies are about, but hopefully by sharing my reaction to "Sisters" in terms of enjoyment, it may supplement any other info you read about the movie.

    A fun comedy reuniting Fey and Poehler

    Sisters brings together a large cast of current and former SNL cast members for a surprisingly sharp comedy that finds success in its lead actresses undeniable chemistry making this coming of age story more memorable than what its simple premise would lead to believe, Many guest appearances (Bobby Moynihan, Maya Rudolph, and Kate McKinnon) adds to stellar cast and fun cameos from the likes of John Cena help to add pep into what is largely a character driven story. The laughs are witty and vulgar and driven home by "Sisters" leads and while the added attempt to place family togetherness and morality may seem a bit unnecessary, ( with some of the antics and ending being a bit of a stretch in terms of believably) it does not detract from the overall experience. The Blue ray itself is full of extra features and the included dvd and digital copy give you everything you could want. Fans of Fey and Poehler definitely should watch as well as anyone looking for a biting and raunchy good time.

    The movie starts out a bit slow and I feel at certain times I have already seen these characters before from Tina Fey and Amy Pohler but they do a great job as the movie picks up. This is for pure entertainment and even a bit nostalgic. There are times I feel I'm watching a SNL skit. The laughs are good laughs and not just crude humor that we seem to see more of these days. I would recommend at least watching this movie once and judge for yourself. There's a slew of SNL alumni throughout but it's just what you expect. The appearance of John Cena is awesome and makes a few scenes that much more so. All in all the movie is good for a laugh and will leave a smile on your face. But once the movie is done then your done. There's no after feeling, just a comedic buddy flick to laugh with the girls or even guys. Enjoy.

    SISTERS staring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is absolutely HILARIOUS!! This is the funniest movie I have seen in a very long time! I wasn’t able to go see this in theater, so I was excited to be able to buy the Blu Ray. There is a LOT of explicit language, but it’s freaking hilarious! I would recommend this movie 100% It reminded me of the parties I use to throw when I was in high school when my parents went away. I had the whole house to myself and huge parties. This movie was so much like my life. So if you like movies with lots of laughs and that is one big party this one is for you.

    I wasn't sure if this movie would be good or not as most movies now adays just show trailers of all the funny stuff and the rest of the movie lacks. That is NOT the case with this movie at all. Tiny & Amy are just a great comedy combination and this movie was so funny, I caught myself laugh hysterically out loud, so loud that others in my house were staring at me. This definitely took me back to when I was a kid and I could relate to a lot of the stuff when they show them as teens. If you love Amy or Tina, you will fall in love with this movie. This is one I can watch over & over again!

    Tina Fey and and Amy Poehler are two of the funniest ladies on this planet. The Unrated version is extremely raunchy. They play sisters who fight constantly. Underneath all the antics there is heart. Both sisters discover their parents are selling the home they grow up in. They decide to have one last party in the house without their parents knowledge. This is a party to beat all parties. Most of their SNL friends show up. Don"t miss it and ignore the critics.

    Sisters probably won't go down as a genre classic -- its burdensome and uneven first half all but ensures that -- but it's a lot of fun once it gets rolling. A terrific lead tandem and a strong supporting cast accentuate the movie's finest qualities and story themes. Universal's Blu-ray release comes packed to the gills with featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, and an audio commentary. Picture quality is great and sound is fine. Recommended.
