A coming-of-age familial comedy and a somewhat interesting spin on the house party movie, Sisters sees Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in great form together but is nonetheless fairly forgettable. The duo have a contagiously fun onscreen chemistry, clearly enjoying being more crass than we normally see them. They're obviously real-life pals and as they drop dozens of F-bombs, make poo jokes and generally behave badly, they add a lot of heart to what is otherwise only a mildly entertaining film.

Beneath the film’s entertainingly crude hijinks, there are actual human stakes here, as the two sisters recognize in each other the growing up they themselves need to do...

Laugh-out-loud in places. Frustratingly flat in others. Sporadic giggles guaranteed.

Too strained for a comedy starring two of the funniest people alive.

Entertaining as far as it goes, but it only occasionally feels like it’s going far enough.

Vulgar, violent and only fitfully funny.

Although the film directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) mostly concentrates on over-the-top comic mayhem, it's actually funniest in its quieter, subtler moments.
