There have been some great comedies from both Will Ferrell (Daddy’s Home) and Amy Poehler (Sisters). However, the film that brings them together didn’t provide the same laughs as their successors. Both Ferrell and Poehler are two of the funniest actors in the biz right now but that doesn’t make them bullet proof when it comes to their work. Every person has the potential of having a hit or miss. Sadly, The House is one of those misses as it provided mediocre comedy that even some of the actors themselves knew wasn’t up to par with their potential.
The dynamic funny duo are back with their latest comedy that proves that 80’s still RULE, women actors need to get paid more, and a comedy even a raunchy one can still be charming with a lot of heart.
This updated Can’t Hardly Wait brings two sisters, Maura and Kate Ellis together played by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey respectively, who throw the party of the year in their childhood home before its sold to new owners.
Can I just say that this movie is one of the funniest comedies I have seen this year. I was laughing from beginning to end. It was a much needed laugh as well. These two are funny women and funnier when they are together. Their chemistry together are so good that playing sisters is second nature to them.
