Comedy films sell big time. It doesn’t matter if the critics trash it and rate it will lesser stars, people love watching these light-hearted films. We all love laughing out loud in an otherwise stressful life. Watching films is a way of seeking entertainment and that is what filmmakers should focus on.

Now the year is almost at the end and another comedy film is all set to release. This one is called Sisters. The movie is directed by Jason Moore, the man who gave us the lovely film, Pitch Perfect. Jason is also known for directing several episodes of Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, Everwood, and Brothers & Sisters.

Sisters has Tina Fey and Amy Poehler playing the leads. The makers obviously couldn’t have gotten a better pair for a movie like this. The two are known to be extremely close and share a great rapport. They have often declared their love for each other and the chemistry between them is absolutely amazing.
