Sisters (2015)

When two 40ish sisters (Tina Fey, Amy Poehler) find out their parents (James Brolin, Dianne Wiest) are selling the family home and moving into a condominium, they decide to throw one last big party and invite all the "kids" from their high school years. Big mistake! The writing is pretty lame and the many of the jokes are dumb but I wasn't expecting Ernst Lubitsch or Preston Sturges! But I still laughed a lot. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are two of the most talented comedy actresses working today and their chemistry and comic timing are second to no one. Maybe you can't squeeze blood out of a stone but they can wring a laugh out of one. You're laughing even as you're groaning and the gags come left, right and so fast that you don't have the time to think about it. They didn't write the movie but it's crammed with a lot of their comic alumni from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE and other comic talents like John Leguizamo. Unexceptionally directed by Jason Moore. With Maya Rudolph, Ike Barinholtz, Kate McKinnon, Bobby Moynihan, Greta Lee, John Cena, Rachel Dratch and Chris Parnell.
