We all know you can’t go back in time, but Fey and Poehler give it their best shot in “Sisters”.
With the unexpected sale of their family home, sisters Kate (Fey) and Maura (Poehler) head home when mum and dad (Dianne West and James Brolin) give the girls the weekend to clear out their stuff, but Kate (Fey) convinces Maura (Poehler) that they should hold a monster party instead, inviting all their old school friends.
Chaos ensues with drugs, booze, rock ‘n roll and total destruction of the house. Cringe worthy in parts, but some good laughs. Look out for the performance by Maya Rudolph as she hits the mark as the ostracised schoolmate, Brinda, who is now a real estate agent. Kate hated her in school and now decides to let her have it with both barrels. We all had someone like Brinda at school and the laughs as she dances alone outside watching the party through the window have more than a hint of empathy with the audience.
3/5 stars, with the lack-lustre choice of movies for adults this holiday season this one is worth the price of the ticket.
