Tina Fey and Amy Poehler team up again (“Baby Mama”), but the character types are reversed. Fey is the wild failure, while Poehler plays the stable do-gooder. When their parents decide to sell their home, the girls travel back to clean out their rooms, but not before one final blowout. The flick is all about the snappy banter that bounces effortlessly between them, thanks to SNL writer Paula Pell, who manages to capture their style with sassy ease. There are some cheap shots and obvious gags, but the witty comments make them amusing. It’s fun until about half way thru the big bash, when the mayhem stops building and just gets silly. Still, if you like these women and their comic chemistry (plus a healthy helping of enjoyable supporting characters), you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I left in the middle of the party. How predictable, how inane, how not funny. Earlier bits were hysterically funny — how to pronounce the Korean salon girl’s name, for instance — but they were bits that were worthy only of a TV show, not a whole movie. Talented girls. I love their stuff but they really lowered themselves to perform this drek.
