Really proves that the media was far too quick to dub Amy Schumer "the queen of comedy," not only because of the existence of Greta Gerwig for the indie crowd, but the existence of the dynamic and incredibly charismatic duo of Amy Poehler/Tina Fey. These two work wonders here, and the laughs are consistent and hearty. Also, don't sleep on Bobby Moynihan, who does some electric physical comedy here, as well.
Overlong and frequently unfunny, it's not hard to be disappointed by how flat Sisters is, especially considering the quality of all those involved. You know your movie is in trouble when John Cena is the best of what you have to offer.
So they are 50 years old and they think the best way of dealing with a problem is throwing a party? I guess they are not the brighest diamond on the shell - hun? Like an impossible trip to stand for more than 15 minutes... If you think about women having to play these awful dumb characters in comedy to fill they wallets with movie money, it's more like a drama. Sad really.
While I do love both Tina and Amy and the work that each have done, "Sisters", I feel, is sort of a desperate attempt to pair the two together as in a failed SNL-era sketch, but much longer. There's the typical characters that have a conflict and need figure it out by the end. Also, I'm fairly certain that this film cements that Amy will never play a dramatic role in her life, or is not capable. Just ... ehh.
I realized I have a big respect for comedians, because it sure is difficult to make people laugh out loud. Though I am not easily humored, but I found myself cracking up with the random funny bits that happened all through out this movie. The dynamic between Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is what only two perfectly in sync comedians can do. Sure it is far from being the perfect comedy, but it does the job.
Lewd, crude and decidedly funny! I did not expect much from this but gave it a shot since Fey and Poehler was in it. The story has been done many times before (but with guys in the lead roles) but the gender flip pays off. The jokes come fast and hard and while some of them miss I found myself laughing more than I thought I would.
