While many may look at Sisters as pure counter-programming for Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December, I'm guessing there will be plenty of people who want to see a new sci-fi adventure and two of the funniest women in comedy headlining a film together. I know I do.
In this film, directed by Pitch Perfect helmer Jason Moore, Fey and Poehler play sisters who return to their childhood home only to discover that their parents have put it up for sale. So they have one last party to send it off, and the crazy result looks like what you'd get if you mashed together Step Brothers and Neighbors.
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 produces the comedy alongside Jay Roach (Meet the Parents series) and John S. Lyons (Austin Powers in Goldmember), and Poehler executive produces alongside Jeff Richmond and Brian Bell from a script by Paula Pell (TV’s Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock).
