Boring and inappropriate

This movie was boring throughout. Lots of sexual material including a scene of a man sticking his penis into a paint. I could not watch the whole thing but from what I did see it was supposed to be a comedy. I do not recommend. The main reason I watched this movie was because both main characters were in ‘Mean Girls’ 3/10 — What’s in this movie? Language - Frequent use of every expletive you can imagine, from "f--k" and "sh-t" to "ass," "d--k," "c--t," and more. Sex - Lots of crude gestures and innuendo, and in some scenes characters openly discuss their sexual exploits. Many references to male genitalia, and one character, while on drugs, dips his penis into a bucket of paint and uses it to paint a portrait of said penis on the wall; the painting is shown throughout the movie. One character reads a high school diary out loud, detailing the many guys she bedded. Two adult sisters walk into their parents' apartment and nearly catch them in the act. Their mother is seen in a robe and heels, and the father appears to be hiding in a corner, seemingly nude, though viewers don't see more than his bare chest. Drinking, Drugs & Smoking - Lots of drinking; some drug use. The sisters throw a party and offer booze to their guests, who proceed to get pretty drunk pretty quickly. Pot use, and one character, a drug dealer, opens a bag to reveal his extensive inventory, which he then describes in detail, mentioning drugs like Molly, OxyContin, and heroin. A character appears to have snorted way too much of a substance called Cloud 10, a Molly/Adderall blend. Violence - A rowdy party gets out of hand, and windows, doors, and other things get broken. Long scene in which a character falls onto a child's toy, which results in two other characters trying to remove it from his rectum. Sisters tussle when an argument escalates. Yelling between family members.

Sisters is a profane, moderately crass comedy with some funny elements to it. It has scenes of moderate sexual content including a graphic sex scene and a man using his penis to paint a wall. A woman pretend to put a baton up her vagina and her bottom. Only nudity in the film is when a man’s bottom is visible while he skinnydips. There is some moderate comic violence presented in a lighthearted manner throughout the film, including scenes of comic peril. However, sisters’ profanity is on a whole other level from the sex and violence, with lots and lots of frequent f-words and s-words. One use of the most graphic word, c**t, and two uses of c********r. Marijuana and cocaine are taken in the film a few times each (seen in graphic detail), and a man lists lots of drugs such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, weed, etcetera. Sisters is a profane comedy filled with drug use, crude sexual content and language. It is appropriate for teens 15 and up.
