I’ve liked Amy Poehler ever since her hit TV series “Parks & Rec”. So whenever I hear she’s in a big screen comedy, it sounds like a good bet. In “Sisters”, she’s teamed up with fellow comedienne Tina Fey as a pair of siblings who never quite outgrew their teen years. The studio must have some serious confidence in this, as its opening on the same weekend as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. As a counter-programming measure, this just might find an audience.
Here’s a summary: “From Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore, Sisters follows two disconnected siblings who are 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.”
“Sisters” also stars Maya Rudolph, Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin. It premieres 18th December in the US.
