TINA FEY & AMY POEHLER IN SISTERS

year: 2015
Let's go back to LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY. One wild girl keeping the neurotic good one sane while the good girl tries keeping the bad one out of trouble. Well in SISTERS these ladies are related, middle-aged, and... supposedly polar opposites, promised in the trailer itself: showing big bright words THE PERFECT SISTER as we catch glimpses of Amy Poeler's hardworking nurse, Maura Ellis, and THE OTHER SISTER, meaning basically, the black sheep as Tina Fey plays Kate Ellis, with an estranged daughter and no occupation or motivation: So here we have Poeler and Fey as a potential female ODD COUPLE yet both are just as wild, conflicted, stubborn, irritated and... completely unfunny... At least in the present time, where everything really matters despite random conversations about the past, when their differences probably meant something...

The plot involves both yearning to spend one last night at their childhood home, just-sold in secret by retired parents, while everything leads to a wild-turned-wilder party that takes up the entire second half, making up for a complete lack of character-development or any sign the siblings have reasons to resolve problems for that crazy night... as equally bland as the daytime one-liners... to mean anything. Leaving the best compliment for the producers: having guts to go up against STAR WARS. And kudos to nostalgic nods to RISKY BUSINESS and PEE WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE, caught by yours truly but already noted in the IMDB trivia section, so that's that.

RATING: *1/2
