Sisters Kate and Maura Ellis are summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house, much to their dismay. 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.

Finally a comedy that is hilarious, re-watchable and doesn't give away all the funny parts in the preview. I loved this movie.

"We need a little less Forever 21 and a little more Suddenly 42." Kate (Fey) and Maura (Poehler) are sisters that are on opposite ends of life's spectrum. Maura seems to have her life together while Kate is floating. When their parents tell them they are selling their childhood home the two sisters decide to throw one last party. What begins as a way to relive their past turns into a way to help their future. I really love Tina and Amy but they seem to always do the same thing. I laugh every time but Weekend Update to Baby Mama they have always been funny but tame. This movie changes everything. The movie is crude, unexpected and absolutely hilarious. I laughed out loud over and over and the level of dialog is so quote worthy that this movie is well on its way to becoming a classic. If you liked Old School you will love this one. This is one of the funniest comedies I have seen in a very long time. Overall, finally a comedy that is hilarious, re-watchable and doesn't give away all the funny parts in the preview. This is a movie I can not recommend enough. I loved this movie. I give this an A+.
