Consensus: Sisters' sharp blend of pathos and vulgarity, along with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's effervescent chemistry, are more than enough to make up for the handful of laughs this coming-of-age comedy leaves on the table.

Is Sisters a good movie? No. No, it is not. Its plot manages to be both jarring (so many twists!) and predictable; its supporting characters are thin; it makes gleeful use of tired stereotypes.

It's with no small reluctance I report Sisters is a depressing, overlong, repetitive slapstick disaster in which two of the most appealing stars around wallow in the muck AND the mire, figuratively and literally.

Sisters looks like the kind of family affair that Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen have dominated the box office with, but these Sisters are doing it for themselves.

This hectic and sentimental comedy, though built on a firm foundation of familiar experience and stifled pain, is a sad waste of sparkling talent.

Unfortunately, Sisters just isn't worthy of all the talent involved.

At the screening I attended, a man beside me, horrified, kept shouting, "Oh my GOD!" whenever [Amy] Poehler or [Tina] Fey said anything remotely crude. If that's not a resounding endorsement, I don't know what is.

As has so often been the case when it comes to Fey's movie choices, an opportunity has been lost.

You feel that there is a good and maybe even a meaningful comedy here. But it never gets its act together.

Sisters is a film that is best seen on a plane. That's about all there is to say about it. But I think that women should be able to coast a bit, as we had a pretty good year.

Disappointed with this. I had looked forward to getting this one as I liked Baby Mama and I think both the actresses are quite funny. What seemed like it would… More
