“SISTERS” TINA FEY AND AMY POEHLER ARE TOO SMART TO LOOK THIS DUMB
We REALLY wanted to love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s new comedy “Sisters” but we ended up feeling embarrassed for them. Generally the girls are snappy and entertaining, but this movie script (they didn’t write it) dumbed them down considerably. You’d THINK the script was originally written for a pair of man-children on the Adam Sandler level of comedy. Lots of bathroom and tampon jokes, penis jokes and gross-out humor. The writer took a perfectly good idea – one sister is organized and prissy and the other is a raunchy disaster and they get together to have one last blow-out party before their parents sell their childhood home. There are a few funny moments but it never rises above slapstick and these girls deserve better.
