Sisters

January 9, 2016

I need to start by confessing that I think that I’m in love with Tina
 Fey and Amy Poehler. This afternoon I went up to Bellingham for a girls
 day with my BFF. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings, which is probably one 
of my all time favorite restaurants. Who knew wings could be so yummy?! 
After we headed over to the the theatre and watched Sisters. How
 many of you out there have a sister? I can’t help but know that, in 
particular, girls with sisters will be nodding their head along in utter
 agreement because, they themselves have had many of those moments. 
Those who are only children or don’t have one might not find it as 
believable or simply might not get the ‘sister’ aspect of it all. As 
someone with sisters, I was not only nodding my head along but I know 
for fact when my sister (the one who is closer in age with me) watches 
this movie she will loose it in agreement. There
 is something to be said for having a sister who you can bond over the 
silliest things with. While this movie had a few over the top moments, 
it didn’t take away from what was one of the funniest movies I’ve seen 
in a long time. I’m sure that somehow this movie has fallen through the 
cracks given all the Star Wars mania. Or maybe it hasn’t and I just live
 in a bubble. Which let’s face it, it’s probably the later of the two. Amy Poehler plays Maura, who is always
 putting other people first. She’s the responsible sister, a nurse, who 
owns a house, has a good savings account, generally plays the party mom.
 I’ve been there.  Tina Fey plays Kate, who
 is the far more irresponsible party sister. She’s a hair stylist, who 
can’t hold a job, or track her daughter, without a place to live. She’s 
laid back but has a bit of a temper.  Ike Barinholtz plays
 the love interest of Maura, James. I love Ike from The Mindy Project 
and it was nice to see him in a bit of a more intelligent roll.   The
 three of them make a down right hysterical movie.  I even found myself 
crying from laughing too much, something I really needed right now given
 everything that’s been going on in my life. It was a nice escape and I 
recommend it to those who enjoy movies like Bridesmaid, Pitch Perfect, and anything that Tina, Amy or Ike have been in.

Maura and Kate’s parents are selling their childhood home and the girls have to clean out all their old crap. Maura realizes that she didn’t really have classic ‘fun’ growing up and so the two decide to throw a party with all their old friends. They switch rolls, leaving Kate in the party mom roll while Maura lets it rip.

The three of them make a down right hysterical movie.  I even found myself crying from laughing too much, something I really needed right now given everything that’s been going on in my life.
