Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reflect back on their duo work since SNL - from the Golden Globes, to their brand new movie Sisters.
Aren’t Amy Poehler and Tina Fey a pleasure to watch? The duo met in 1993 in an improv class. Together they made their mark on American television in their sketches where they co-anchored ‘Weekend Updates’ and did impersonations of Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin. The duo turned the tide of television and pioneered or re-pioneered some of the latest trends with their comedic sense.

The actresses have both been friends over the years and share their passion for comedy and good humor. Their chemistry is as natural now as it can be between two co-stars. Like Amy Poehler said in an interview with Glamour where both the stars sat down to answer questions about their new movie Sisters. Poehler said that the co-actors usually have to meet up and have dinner and sometimes have sex.
For her and Tina, it is like that dinner went on forever. When asked what the women admired about each other, they both appreciated each other’s life endeavors. Amy appreciated that Tina left the cusp of SNL to create a show like 30 Rock and sway a whole generation with the show. Tina appreciated Amy’s character and work in Parks and Recreation and applauded her strong characterization for a great feminist role.
Talking about being co-hosts on the Golden Globes, the actresses admitted that it had been great developing the format of the show. They said that working with each other made it all the more easier for each other. Reminiscing on jokes they had delivered over the course of three consecutive years of hosting the awards, they said that they admit that men can be funny.
Speaking of funny, they both star in the new comedy Sisters where both of them play sisters. The movie is about two sisters who find out that their parents have sold their childhood home and return one last time to throw a rager.
Tina’s character is the wild, partying high school sweetheart stuck in her ways at a much later age while Amy’s character is the more responsible, worrying sister of the pair. The sisters connect and rediscover themselves while on their journey delving into the past. Tina reflected on playing a ‘woman-child’ and dressing up sexy. She said that if ‘man-child’ was a word, then women were also entitled to be called as such.
She said that dressing up sexy is subjective. She said that what might seem sexy to her might not to anyone else so sexy was a term relevant to the person perceiving it. When Tina asked Amy what she would like to say to make people go see Sisters, the actress replied that if people love her and they loved Tina and if they liked to see them both playing sisters, then they should go see Sisters.
The stars probably realized that their film will be releasing on the same day as this year’s most anticipated Star Wars movie. They have hence created a social media campaign with #YouCanSeeThemBoth". The actresses emphasized that the fans can go and see both the movies on the opening weekend.
