The team of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler has become a force to be reckoned with in recent years, strengthened by their real life friendship (and the public spillover that has ingratiated the duo even more with fans). They’re banking on their natural comedic chemistry with one another to empower their upcoming film, Sisters, teamed together with another rising comedic voice in Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore.
Fey and Poehler star as polar opposite sisters who have to clean out their childhood bedroom before their family sells the house. Wanting to re-live the glory days of their youth, they decide to throw one final house party. The script is writer Paula Pell’s first feature screenplay, but she has also written for Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, Bridesmaids, and This is 40.
The trailer has its ups and downs, but the real highlights are when Fey and Poehler can build off of one another’s jokes, the kind of chemistry we’ve grown to love in Apatow films. Plus, the more we can get out of Fey and Poehler sharing screen time, the better.
Sisters will be out in theaters on December 18th.
