Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Two sisters, one very loose and childish (Tina Fey), and the other uptight and divorced (Amy Poehler), decide to throw one last party at their childhood home, which their parents are about to sell.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for ‘Sisters,’ a new film from ‘Pitch Perfect’ director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters 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. Fey produced the comedy alongside Jay Roach (‘Meet the Parents’ series), and Poehler executive produced from a script by Paula Pell (TV’s ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘30 Rock’).

This comedy is based on the childhood diaries of the screenwriter, Paula Pell.”

Movie Critics

…is not as funny as it looks… The film would like to fashion itself as a tale of rediscovery and rebirth, allowing that at any age one can still start fresh, yet it repeatedly bogs itself down. …
—Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

…what amounts to an “Animal House” for libidinous females crossed with “Risky Business” for ostensible adults. “Sisters” is strenuously vulgar, as well as studiously raunchy… it’s really bad fun that’s badly directed… badly written… badly performed and bad news for anyone who cares about the quality of big-screen comedy. …
—Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

…It’s a shame then, that with all these fine creators, this scattershot comedy just doesn’t gel in the way that it should. …The party takes up much of the film’s duration, which at nearly two hours is far too long for a project this lightweight. …[2/4]
—Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service

…“Sisters” is a raunchy, movie-length SNL skit that gets old in about five minutes. Maybe faster than that, actually. And with every sick, sad reference to sexual anatomy Fey and Poehler make, it just drags out longer and longer. …
—Adam R. Holz, Plugged In

…“Sisters,” the latest in an increasingly long line of female-centric gross-out comedies, isn’t as bad as Horrible [Bosses 2]… but it definitely carries a vibe that says you’d be better off being cast in the movie than paying to see it. …“Sisters” never really manages to rise above the party-out-of-control genre… [2/4]
—Chris Knight, National Post

…Tina Fey, Amy Poehler are “Sisters” behaving badly… Though the party initially resembles a wake, things quickly spin out of control with the addition of drugs, alcohol, lesbians with dance music and young Asian party girls. …feels a tad overlong.
—Kevin C. Johnson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

…The movie occasionally delivers on its promise of outright silliness… yet they can’t quite keep “Sisters” afloat. …
—Stephanie Zacharek, Time

…“Sisters” hilariously and unapologetically belongs to the middle-aged woman… The laughs don’t shy away from the vulgar, but instead go right for it with a quick and dirty thirst. … [3/4]
—Julia Cooper, The Globe and Mail

…there are moments when its good-natured raunch turns rancid, like Barinholtz’s unfortunate tumble onto a phallic-shaped music box. At its heart, though, “Sisters” is a witty and occasionally wise take on sibling bonds and adulthood — even if the latter only arrives kicking and screaming.
—Sara Stewart, New York Post

…it’s uneven, generally enjoyable, self-consciously naughty and also, despite drug use and jokes about anal sex, more concerned with reassurance than transgression. …
—A.O. Scott, The New York Times

…predictable, repetitious and the sheer volume of penis jokes shows that there’s no gender difference when it comes to this comedy style. You’ve seen it all before. And in some cases, wish you hadn’t. …[2½/4]
—Linda Barnard, The Toronto Star

…too much vulgar, immoral content, including many obscenities. …
