Today, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler join forces in Sisters , a movie about familial dynamics, growing up, and one hell of a house party. It shouldnt exactly be a stretch: If weve learned anything from the duos decades-long friendship, depicting such a close dynamic onscreen isnt going to require Daniel Day-Lewis chops from either comedian. Fans know the ins and outs of the Fey-Poehler sisterhood, but their BFF status is just one part of what makes fans love them. There is, of course, the work they sometimes but not too often make together. Read More...
