Watch: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Plan a Party in First 'Sisters' Trailer

"We need to say goodbye to this house." Universal has debuted the first trailer for the comedy Sisters, starring Amy Poehler & Tina Fey as wild sisters who throw a raging party at their family house before it's gone. Let's be honest here - this isn't really our kind of movie. For one reason being that this is opening the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens (the other reason being it's just not our brand of comedy). That's either a brilliant counter-programming move, or a disaster in the making once Force Awakens takes over, only time will tell. While it's always fun to see Poehler and Fey, this just doesn't look that good at all.

Here's the first official trailer for Jason Moore's Sisters, direct from Universal:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for Sisters, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need. Fey also produced the comedy alongside Jay Roach and John S. Lyons, and Poehler executive produces alongside Jeff Richmond and Brian Bell from a script by Paula Pell (SNL, "30 Rock"). Universal will release Moore's Sisters in theaters everywhere starting December 18th - the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Why is it that these two ladies are so freaking incredible on TV, but just can't seem to connect to film? I can't really say that neither Poehler or Fey have had movies that made me laugh a quarter as much as Leslie Knope or Liz Lemon, respectively.

I giggle at the mere mention of Leslie Knope....

I think their style of comedy works best when skirting the edge of late night television, with innuendos, pushing the boundaries and reeling it back in just in time, leaving the viewer knowing what they meant without spelling it out in crayon.. When they are turned loose with an R rated raunchy style comedy, they loose their edge. Just my opinion, but I like them better pushing the envelope vs. ripping it apart.

Slayer I agree completely. Having the boundary for these two makes their performances funny. Without that boundary I don't think they connect right. The perfect example is Howard Stern. Very funny on terrestrial radio. After the move to satellite it was very ho hum.

I agree with your Howard Stern comparison. People tuned in to see just what he could or could not get away close he could get to the edge without jumping off. Now his show is just R or even X rated comedy, which is fine, just not as good or fun to me anyway.

Worth remembering that The Mummy made a shed load of money by coming out at the same time as The Phantom Menace.

The Mummy? I love that movie! Like I said, could be brilliant counter-programming. Depends if SW7 takes up every last theater.

What crazy person would go up against Star Wars 7?

I actually thinks this looks pretty funny.
