A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Everything you need to be happy is inside yourself. Family isn't just the people you're related to. It's also the people you love and trust, and who care about you. When you've done something wrong it's best to come forward, admit it, learn from your mistakes.
Positive Role Models
All characters are comic exaggerations and not realistic role models. Almost all of them occasionally do things they shouldn't, but by the end things are set right.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some light kissing, caressing, light sexual innuendo played for comedy. A couple in bed imply they've just had sex with "that was great" type of dialogue (under covers but man's bare chest is visible). A man talks about his love for another man. Two men accidentally kiss, have exaggerated, negative reactions. One plot element involves an extramarital affair.

"A--holes," "goddamn," and some sexual innuendo like "horny" and "well sprung."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Characters frequently depicted with wine or champagne glasses. One character asks for a White Russian cocktail. One musical number is about a flask. A minor character called a freeloading hippie is briefly shown slowly exhaling smoke and lighting a pipe.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Sisters Plotz is a feature-length musical comedy by the creative team behind a popular web TV series of the same name. Just about everything and everyone in it are highly exaggerated for comedy reasons. Positive messages come across as an afterthought but emphasize tropes like "money won't make you happy," "crime doesn't pay," "family is the people you love and who love you," etc. Characters frequently drink wine and cocktails. Sexy stuff is light and played for comedy, including some kissing, caressing, innuendo, and implied sex from a couple in bed under covers. A man talks about his love for another man. Strong language is rare, including "a--holes," "goddamn," and sexual innuendo like being "well sprung." A minor character slowly exhales smoke and is shown lighting a small pipe. Best for teens who are already fans of the web TV series. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Strictly for fans of the web TV series who enjoy big slabs of ham slathered with cheese and lots of corn on the side. The Sisters Plotz tries for good-humored fun but plays like random webisodes strung together on a whim and a shoestring budget. If watching hammy actors purposely overworking sophomoric jokes and singing slightly off-key is your kind of humor, you'll find it in spades here. But even for the right fan in the right mood, the segments drag on too long, or are too repetitive, to sustain genuine laughs. The frequent drinking and mild sexuality make it appropriate for teens and up.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
