SISTERS

**1/2

DIRECTED BY Jason Moore

STARS Tina Fey, Amy Poehler

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are fine actresses as well as superb comediennes, yet they never quite pull off the sister act in Sisters. As with everything they do together, they are such the BFFs – and respond to each other accordingly – it’s impossible to accept them as related by blood.

That’s mentioned only as an aside and certainly not as a knock on them – indeed, they do far more for this film than the film does for them.

Discovering that their childhood home is being sold, sensible Maura (Poehler) and reckless Kate (Fey) elect to send it off with a raucous house party. The late-inning moralizing is as clumsy as that from any Will Ferrell or Vince Vaughn outing, and the hilarious bits are tempered by many that barely merit a wan smile.

But the ladies are in good form, and post-Trainwreck Jon Cena is again on hand to unexpectedly flex his comedic side.
