Could've been better, but not too bad.

First off, it does contain a lot of substance abuse and sexual content (hence, the R rating). Second: the movie felt lackluster, rushed, overly vulgar (to the point of being a tad unbearable at times) and the humor was very hit or miss. I can see the appeal of you're one to find crude humor funny, but for everyone else it feels overdone and overworked. Certain scenes played out for slightly too long (such as the music box scene), some jokes were vulgar just for the purpose of being vulgar ("What am I supposed to do with this [USB drive]? Stick it up my vagina?") and the ending was a discombobulated mess. Some lines were honestly laugh-worthy, but others were more so laughable. Like I said, very hit or miss. Plot-wise, it was shoddy at best. One of the most glaring flaws was the entire timeline of the party. If it began at 8:30 and had been going for a few hours (as evidenced by the amount of time it took to get the actual partying started), what time was it when Kate's daughter arrives at the house with her grandparents? It's most likely the wee hours of the morning. Why not wait until the next day to visit her mom and aunt at the house? Why is everyone wearing actual clothing and looking alert rather than wearing pajamas and being tired? How was this overlooked? TL;DR: Lots of vulgarity, drugs, sex, and poor writing. Don't watch this with your 12 year old.

BORING!!

The trailers you see on TV may be funny, but in real life, Sisters is boring. Well, I wouldn´t say boring. The movie seems to include the F-bomb 90% of the time ,drug and sexual references just to be rated R. Considering that Tina Fey and Amy poehler are in this movie together, you would think it was funny, but itś just really disappointing. Dont waste your money buying this movie. You´re not really missing much.

Mature but hilarious and entertaining comedy has lots of sex, drugs, language.

This mature and racy but hilarious comedy is about a woman named Kate, she is living with her daughter in her friends house because Kate is loosing money, as she was fired from her job. She is a salty, weird, but very funny. Kate has a sister, and her name is Maura, she is a kind and sweet, but also weird lady who does work for seniors. Maura lives in Orlando, where her and Kate's grandparents live, and when their grandparents tell Maura that they're selling their childhood hoom. Maura knows that Kate doesn't take bad news lightly, so to tell her in a "fun" way, Maura buys Kate and her daughter two airplane tickets to Orlando. Once Kate gets there, her daughter goes off with some friends in Orlando, and Maura takes her out, and then eventually tells her that the grandparents are selling the house. Kate gets mad, and goes to the house with Maura, but then Kate has an idea. Kate wants to throw a huge party before the house goes, and tried to get Maura to be a bad girl and to get out with a boy from down the street. This party includes drugs, other inappropriate content, and more. How will this party turn out? Violence 1/5: A character falls down a sink hole, a brief fight includes kicking. Sexual content and nudity 5/5: Constant, graphic innuendo, references, and conversations. In one scene, a woman talks about how a man had sex with her, and how she can barely walk, and then the woman says that the man she had sex with has an STD. A brief scene shows a man graphically giving a woman anal sex, and is quietly heard ejaculating and moaning with his wife. A man removes his underwear, and draws his genitals on the wall graphically, and his when his underwear comes off, his genitals ar seen. A woman reads something from a highschool book she wrote, and it is filled with sexual images and references. A man and a woman are seen tounge-making out, and fall into the roof onto a bed, start to have sex, until the mans bottom is poked with a toy, his bottom and his genitals are briefly seen. A bit of implied sex. A woman is seen topless in a chair briefly. Lots of crude references. Two woman are seen taking a bath together (nonsexual) and lots of skin is shown. A woman preforms many different sex acts, including oral sex on a painting of genitals. Graphic references to anal sex and hand jobs. A man character walks around naked frequently, his bottom is shown. A woman talks about having anal intercourse with a man. In a store, a man with an erection comes up behind a woman and thrusts into her through the back, and she is shocked because she didn't know he was there, and says that she wishes it was his wallet, the two are friends and haven't seen each other in a while. In one brief but graphic scene, two woman walk in on their grandparents having sex, and the grandfather is seen standing in the corner completely naked, and the woman is in her bra and underwear, the man's genitals are barely visible, but glimpsed for under a second. Brief graphic reference to porn. Language 4/5: Strong, very frequent offensive language throughout including f--k, motherf--ker, f--klicker, p---y, d--ksucker, c--t, c--tlicker, c--ksucker, w----e, and tons of other rude, crude language throughout. Drugs and drinking 4/5: Many party scenes show many different characters smoking bongs, drinking vodka and wine, one scene shows a man snorting Cloud 9 and meth, dozens of characters get very drunk on alcohol. A drug specialist comes to the party and does shots, and sells thousands of different kinds of drugs. Although this movie is entertaining and great, it can be very silly, and it's filled with sex, drugs, and constant swearing. My rating:R for strong crude sexual content throughout including some graphic nudity, pervasive language, and drug and alcohol use.

Okay, but forgettable comedy.

Sisters is a comedy that was released on Christmas Day with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I think this film is okay at best. When the film started, I barely laughed, but as soon as it gets to the party, it is fun. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the perfect duo as they have comedic chemistry together, James Brolin and Dianne West are hilarious as they were also in Life In Pieces and the other cast members are good. I'm going to quickly talk about Ike Barinholtz and John Cena. Ike is likable as he has good chemistry with Amy while John Cena may be the scene stealer. Of course, you know what is gonna happen and the film sometimes have unfunny scenes, but it's passable. Grade: C.

" Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Dazzle On The Big Screen "

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler "the female duo most fun on the world" return in a sisters comedy, dissolving their attitudes to perfection in their different characters. Recently, in the cinematographic world, much is had speculated and decreed against the few opportunities in this big world of cinema for women in terms of roles, directors, producers and other jobs in the production of a film. The averages are alarming: 30,9% characters with lines of dialogue are women.19,7% are screenwriters, 22,7% producers and 6,8% are directors. The reality is disturbing inequality of the feminine gender in this topic. Slowly, This fades with celebrities as striking as Melissa McCarthy ('Spy' - 'Ghostbusters (2016) '), Amy Schumer that breaks the stereotypes in any film or the same Tina Fey and Amy Phoeler ('Sisters') this project written by a woman. The impact of this discrimination is imminent, programming ideas with women everywhere, something similar with what you want to achieve with the race of color after problems with the Academy Awards (#OscarSoWhite). This work ('Sisters') demonstrates the domain and extreme capacity that may have a woman in the world of the cinema comedy or any other genre. These two women come into their comfort zone to give us a story written by Paula Pell ('SNL'), centered at a crazy party carried out by last time in their childhood home. Despite the poor and immature script, Amy and Tina manage to offer the best of them through a childish material. "Sisters" possesses a very striking face for marketing, stimulating to give a chance, said marketing worked relatively outstanding, reflected at the box office against its strong imposing (18, December, 2015), "Sisters" premiere without fear of his powerful enemy "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" providing a good alternative to (strange beings) who don't like lightsaber battles or the trio of Chipmunks doing mischief "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip". The characters which turns the story is Kate (Tina Fey) a girl disorganized, insurgent, unable to keep a job and totally promiscuous, while Maura (Amy Poehler) is a nurse, divorced, wanting to live a crazy night and with a personality that is radically different from that of her sister. Parents of them, (Dianne Wiest and James Brolin) strangely, do not form essential part of the project, instead of this, they spend has be secondary characters due to the low integration within the film. Without a doubt, the film takes shape as soon as start "Ellis Island", a development lasting mostly throughout the film, an interesting preamble for an interesting progress. With some reminiscences of the Judd Apatow's comedies (Trainwreck) but better quality, Fey throws her best powers during the two long hours, much more than in her entire career, while Amy in the same way that gives its most eccentric touch to this story full of humour. The cast is completely fun and exciting, as a surprising John Cena already had seen in "Daddy's Home", Rachel Dratch, Bobby Moynihan, Kate McKinnon and others. Personally, I emphasize the interpretation of my friend John Leguizamo, seeing that a Latino - American has a chance at the American Film Company, and what better way that making his "Ellis Sandwich" with so famous, beautiful and talented Phoeler and Fey. All the comedy is so fun and caricature, which even more beyond the scenes loaded with oral elements (phrases and others) the face film is a simple and inexpressive funny scene from a complication of pronunciation that it not only shakes the audience, but up to the own cast. The introductory parts are well known, guests of the past, find people that environmental party, buy the necessary elements for the meeting, and a funny scene at the clothing store that burst of laughter even to the more serious (This scene, a key point of its classification R) As seen in the film's behind of scenes, the fun and excitement that the actors and actresses felt tremendously reflection on the product that the public saw. The stars duo performed one of their best work to date on the big screen but overcoming never done on small screen.

Being the great comics that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are, this movie is filled with clever jokes, however raunchy. Many include sexual innuendos and references to past experiences. Frequent swearing occurs throughout the majority of the movie, arguably to excess. Since it follows two sisters reliving the parties they used to throw when they were in high school, the use of drugs and alcohol is commonplace. Everyone at the party is drinking and most are also doing drugs, such as marijuana. While it has been dramatized for the sake of the movie, it shows how out of hand people can get while under the influence. We feel as if if kids have not been exposed to these things before and they don’t feel comfortable with them, then this is not a good movie for them to see.
