Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, known as queens of comedy who happen to be real life best friends,  starred in a film titled “Sisters.” Jason Moore, the director of “Pitch Perfect” and Paula Pell, a writer of “Saturday Night Live,” created something funny and entertaining with well-known comedians.

Fey plays Kate Ellis, the troublemaker who lived her high school years to the fullest, and Poehler acted as her younger sister, Maura, who wasn’t quite as popular. In adulthood, Kate can’t keep a job and has a weak relationship with her daughter. Maura has a steady career and lives comfortably on her own after a divorce.

The parents of the Ellis sisters decide they want to sell their Florida home where the girls grew up. While cleaning out the house, Kate and Maura decide to host one last bash at what was called “Ellis Island.” They decide to reverse roles so Maura can have a redo on not being popular in high school and Kate will be stuck as “Party Mom.” At times, the movie seemed to be dragging out, but despite the length (1 hour 58 minutes), it is funny with a good cast and worth seeing.
