A mediocre story, with silly characters make for a silly comedy.
Sisters, Maura (Amy Poehler) and Kate (Tina Fey), find that their parents have sold their childhood home. When asked to clean up their room, Kate instead persuades Maura to have one last party there. Maura invites the neighbor next door, James (Ike Barinholtz), along with some old school friends. They bump into, Brinda (Maya Rudolph), who was not invited, and makes for an awkward conversation. Also in this is John Cena as Pazuzu, and John Leguizamo as Dave. Directed by Jason Moore.
This film has many awkward scenes, with the characters being quite immature and childlike. While this can make you laugh by its absurdity, don’t expect a good comedy from it.
Fey and Poehler’s characters are equally as silly and their characters are the center point of the film. There’ll always be one or the other engaging in some questionably weird act or conversation. Though this film can be considered quite funny, laughs are generated not from jokes, but by how unbelievable it is.
I don’t really know what to say about this film. It can be enjoyable as a casual comedy, without having to pay attention too closely to what’s going on. You could even leave it in the background and carry on doing other things.
While it is funny at times, there is no substantial material delivered. It’s one of those shallow comedies that are fun to watch once in a while.
PROS: Funny at times
CONS: Awkward, weird/silly
I give this a 6/10.
