So, it would not have come as a surprise when they both expressed the desire to make a film in which they both play the roles of sisters. Since both women are comedians, if a film has both of them, the film obviously would become twice as funny.
Huffington Post reports, in “Sisters”, Fey plays the part of Kate Ellis who is of short-tempered nature and is an assertive sort of woman. She has a teenage daughter and is unable to retain any job. The role of her daughter in the movie is played by Madison Davenport, 19. Poehler on the other hand plays the role of Maura in the film. Her goal in life seems to be eliminating all the ills present in the world and she handles one grievance at a time.
The publication reports, when the old parents of the ladies, Kate and Maura in “Sisters” make plans to sell the house as expected the two are not happy with the decision. While James Brolin and Dianne Wiest are away, they organize a party at home and it does not bother them that their place would get damaged because it’s such a big party. According to the publication, the movie does not have much of fun element.
Although according to the New York Post, “ ‘Sisters” is a witty and occasionally wise take on sibling bonds and adulthood—even if the latter only arrives kicking and screaming.” The movie features an uncontrollable party and various characters take the center stage one after the another. The coveted feminist twist has been added to the party and eventually viewers are served with a party that is different from a guy-centric party. According to the outlet, the movie is fun to watch.

The star cast includes Ike Barinholtz who plays the role of neighbor and whom Maura wants to attract towards herself. The other actors in the movie are John Cena, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch.
