Sisters

From the desk of The Movie Snob.

Sisters  (D).  Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (both from Baby Mama) reteam for a lewd, crude comedy about two sisters who throw a party at their childhood home after their parents (James Brolin, Catch Me If You Can, and Dianne Wiest, Dan in Real Life) announce that they’re selling the place.  They pack the house with all their old high-school friends, now in their 40s, and hilarious, R-rated, drug-and-alcohol-fueled hijinks ensue.  Or at least that was the plan.  The movie is mostly unfunny, often painfully so, and there is so much vulgarity splayed across the screen that I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone.  The thing is almost 2 hours long and feels much, much longer.  Do not reward bad behavior.  Please skip it.
