Tina Fey and Amy Poehler playing siblings. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler playing siblings who throw the rowdiest house party on the planet. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler - period. Sisters looks like it's going to be a total blast, pairing our two favorite real-life BFFs (and your own imaginary BFFs) in a movie about two sisters who throw one last partayyyy before they have to say goodbye to their childhood home.
And in a fun reversal from their Baby Mama roles, Fey plays the fuck-up sister, while Poehler gets to be the responsible one. But neither of them are being very responsible in this trailer, and I love it. Fey is hitting on John Cena, who is quickly becoming our next great wrestler-turned-comedic-actor (he's no Rock, but he'll do), and Poehler is hitting on Ike Barinholtz, and everyone is getting super white girl wasted.
The supporting cast is just as great: James Brolin and Dianne Wiest play the girls' parents, with appearances from Bobby Moynihan (THE BEST), Maya Rudolph (ALSO THE BEST), Kate McKinnon (YOU GET IT NOW), and Rachel Dratch (SERIOUSLY). This trailer is basically the antidote for that trailer for David O. Russell's Joy. Actually, can they retitle Sisters as Joy? Because this movie looks downright joyful.
Anyway, Sisters hits theaters on December 25, and a new Tina Fey and Amy Poehler movie truly is the best gift to us all.
