Don't Miss: Tina Fey & Amy Poehler’s Epic House Party in Sisters

The Saturday Night Live alums are back in a new comedy just in time for the holidays.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler could stand mute behind a curtain and still be funny. The fact that the SNL veterans are starring as siblings in a new film called Sisters is almost too much to bear. But give it a try. The scenarios in which the actors are placed -- when their parents announce they're selling their childhood home, two adult daughters throw one last high school bash that goes epically wrong -- do not disappoint. (A ballerina music box, Ike Barinholtz's rectum, and wrestler John Cena uttering safe words all factor into the equation.)

This is gay director Jason Moore's second recent movie to highlight hilarious female friendships, after Pitch Perfect. "The women who wrote these movies have observant, intellectual, but lowbrow comic voices," says Moore, who grew up idolizing the 1980s comedies 9 to 5 and Ruthless People. "Generally speaking, the best female characters are the ones who can be really strong but really vulnerable at the same time. Tina and Amy can do that -- light up the humanity of the characters, but also make them really funny." We concur.

Sisters is in theaters December 18. Watch the trailer below:
