Even though both women have been able to tackle diverse roles, Tina Fey usually plays the more straight and narrow type while Poehler will be the ditzy and dorky comic relief. This was the dynamic for Baby Mama. It looks to be a switch here and both seem to be happily embracing their roles.
The cast is really promising here, with Maya Rudolph always an asset to any movie she is in and I like that Ike Barinholtz seems to be playing a very different character than his one on The Mindy Project. John Cena's non-wrestling thing now is to play the cameo love interest in female-led comedies as he appears in this and this weekend's Trainwreck. Obviously this trailer got dropped now, because it will be premiering on the big screen before Amy Schumer's movie.
The release date of this actual movie is rather intriguing as it shares opening with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. At first glance seems like a major miscalculations since Star Wars is the event movie of the year and likely to make an obscene amount of money. Except there is a history of smaller counter-programming movies to do really well sharing the weekend against the monster blockbuster. Sisters should be the soothing and tantalizing lotion to those not interested in a journey to a galaxy far, far away.
