(2015) (Tina Fey, Amy Poehler) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: Upset that their retired parents are going to sell their childhood home, two adult sisters decide to throw one last blow-out party there.
- Kate Ellis (TINA FEY) was once one of the most popular girls in her high school, but since then things haven't panned out that well. She can't hold down a job as a hairdresser, doesn't have her own place, and even her teenage daughter, Hayley (MADISON DAVENPORT), doesn't want to live with her. Kate's sister, Maura (AMY POEHLER), on the other hand, has a good nursing job in Atlanta, but has been divorced for two years. When Maura learns that their parents -- Deana (DIANNE WIEST) and Bucky (JAMES BROLIN) -- are planning on selling the sisters' childhood home, she convinces Kate to travel to Orlando with her where they learn that the house has already sold and the only thing left to do is for the women to clean out their bedroom that's been left pretty much the way it was since they were in high school.
Not happy about this news, the sisters decide to throw one last big-blow out party there, with Kate telling Maura the latter should invite a handsome and single neighbor, James (IKE BARINHOLTZ). While disliked former classmate Brinda (MAYA RUDOLPH) is definitely not invited, the sisters invite others, ranging from married couple Liz (SAMANTHA BEE) and Rob (MATT OBERG) to Sam (KATE MCKINNON) and her lesbian partner and friends. Also invited is local nail salon worker Hae-Won (GRETA LEE) and her friends, sad sack Kelly (RACHEL DRATCH), former class clown Alex (BOBBY MOYNIHAN), and partier Dave (JOHN LEGUIZAMO) who connects the sisters with local drug dealer Pazuzu (JOHN CENA) for product to spice up the party.
When the latter finally shows up, the party kicks in to high gear, with the sisters trading their usual roles as Kate plays house mom while Maura lets her hair down and tries to bed James. As the party continues and more booze and drugs are consumed, things start to get out of control.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Teens might show interest due to the hard R rating and presence of Fey and Poehler (among others in the cast).
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For crude sexual content and language throughout, and for drug use.
