Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated
Release: Apr 10, 2016 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the Theatrical Version and the Unrated Version. Both versions are available on the US Blu-ray/DVD by Universal.

When the sisters Kate (Tina Fey) and Maura (Amy Poehler) learn that their parents are going to sell their house and that they only have a few days to clear out their former rooms, they decide to party the way they used to back in the day for one last time. Former classmates are invited quickly and it does not take to get a lot of alcohol. The party is pretty easygoing at first. But when manicurist Hae-Won (Greta Lee) shows up with her friends, a group of lesbians show up with the right music and a drug dealer with a lot of drugs, the party gets started and momentum gains. Even the unpopular Brinda (Maya Rudolph) gets influenced and throws herself into the fray of dance-happy Koreans, Scarface references and destroyed walls.

The two leading ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are part of the Saturday Night Live crew and in "Sisters", they are playing two very different sisters who intend to relieve their youth by throwing a party which gets out of control soon. Basically, that sounds like some stuff but it turns out to be a rather boring flick with doubtful humor. One more time, vulgar behavior and fecal humor (e.g. a ballerina up the butt) is supposed to be funny. Until the party gets started at all, there are 45 minutes of torture during which the audience is made aware of a lot of superfluous things such as Kate's difficult relationship with her daughter, Maura's need for sex or details of her parents' sex life. The mandatory love story in which a "cute" guy from the neighborhood is being hit on and becomes the love interest mustn't be missing either. When the party gets finally started, it becomes mildly more entertaining. People are dancing and having fun, several things get destroyed, but somehow, one has seen it all before - only better. Strange plot twists like Kate finds out that she will get half of the money her parents get for selling their house and tries to keep the damage to a minimum come out of nowhere and are put into action half-assed. Furthermore, a conflict (which seems quite artificial) among the two sisters is heating up. But how else should it be? At the end, everything is fine and everyone is happy. But there is a silver lining: Maya Rudolph. She knows how to deliver a punchline are her gags are the best ones by far - like the Game of Thrones references ("Winter is coming, bitches!").

The Unrated Version is approx. 5 minutes longer than the Theatrical Version but it does not contain a lot of new stuff. Every now and then, a few scenes are longer plus another dirty joke here and there and that is basically it. The term "Unrated" turns out to be a marketing trick once again because there is not any more explicit footage which needed to be removed for the theatrical release. Since the US Blu-ray contains both versions, the choice is yours.
