Director Jason Moore’s Sisters is an uproarious gross-out laugh fest.

Star/Producer Tina Fey and Amy Poehler play siblings, one a wild cat and the other a pussy cat, who throw a final party in their childhood home, when their parents (James Brolin and Dianne Wiest) decide to move into a condo.

Obviously, chaos ensues, but with Writer Paula Pell’s hilarious script and Cinematographer Barry Peterson’s sense of capturing comedy from the right angles, Moore creates the most laughs I’ve had since Melissa McCarthy’s Spy, earlier this year.

Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, John Cena, Samantha Bee, Ike Barinholtz and John Leguizamo add to the fun.

The interesting thing about this experience was the fact the women in the audience laughed louder at some lines than the men.  (I’ll admit that some of those times, I didn’t fully understand the joke.)  But, there were times when the men had the louder laughs.  However, most of the time, there was mutual enjoyment of the humor.  (Though some of the humor may not be appropriate for those who have led too sheltered a life.)

If you need some big belly laughs, and who doesn’t, go and enjoy Sisters.

I give it a 4.5 out of 5.
