Tina and Amy are better than this.
What went wrong? Tina and Amy were so funny together on SNL and the
Golden Globes. You would think another movie starring the both of them
would be another hit.This was just painful. Nothing happened. It's basically a
gender-swapped Step Brothers. It's people, on the verge of 50, acting
like children. In Step Brothers, it was hilarious because it showed the
baffled reactions of everyone around the two main characters as they
acted like buffoons. In this movie, nobody seems to react to how
ridiculous these two are. In fact, everyone around them is equally
immature. All these over-the-top characters kept popping up. Maya
Rudolph plays a bitter "mean" girl, John Leguizamo plays a STD ridden
sex freak, and Bobby Moynihan plays the former class clown that nobody
thought was funny. Moynihan actually, quite barely, saves this movie
from being absolutely unbearable, because his character was basically a
walking non-sequitur (ala Brick Tamland, Ralph Wiggum).It's just an odd set of really, unfunny jokes. That's it. Gags that
don't set up and lead to nowhere. The only shred of a story that exists
is hastily established and wrapped up within the final 20 minutes of
the movie. They just weren't thinking while making this.

Teenage boy penis/boobs/anus movie
This one is truly awful.I'm not so sure when I've seen a movie that I disliked more. The only
reason I didn't walk out within ten minutes was because I was with two
other people. In the end, they hated it just as much as I. All of us,
BTW, work in film and publishing. We saw the film at a WGA screening in
Beverly Hills 12/27/15....Where to begin? The characters are insipid. No one on the screen (I'm
speaking here of the characters, not the actors) whom I/we could like.
The language was self-consciously profane,meant to be funny but only
repetitively offensive. The plot, a big party that destroys a family
house, lowbrow and irrational. The more I watched these characters the
more I disliked them, their friends and their families.There's such a thing as a "smart dumb comedy" (e.g., The Wedding
Crashers, but this was not it. Toward the end of the film there is a massive sinkhole on the family
property. If only this whole project had gone down there. Works like
this are the problem with the American film industry. They seek the
lowest element of audience stupidity and occasionally, as in this case,
achieve it.To be AVOIDED! A mess!

One Last Party
Really, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and this is as good as they can do,
this movie is for teenage boys, young pubescent kids. What a
disappointment. I expected so much more from two comediennes, but this
is a low low. Drugs, penises, boobs, and more f- words than necessary.
Come on, comedy doesn't need to smack you in the face, again and again
and again and again. James Brolin and Dianne Weist and the young
actress playing Tina's daughter, showed just enough restraint, much
needed by everyone else, to be the only bright spots in this movie.
Raise the bar, Tina and Amy!!! They could have offered more reasons to
root for either sister, but did not. Amy and Tina, please, I know you
can do better, because I've seen you do better. Don't settle for making
the lowest common denominator laugh. Elevate your efforts
