Eight Life Lessons From the New Sisters Movie Trailer

I, like most of my generation, am obsessed with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey because they are the dream-team of females in comedy. Poehler/Fey are the bestie goals of every single teenager, so obviously I’m super STOKED for there new movie “Sisters” premiering this Christmas. With all of my excitement I have culminated my list of the top eight life lessons I learned from the “Sisters” trailer:


1. Family will always be there for you

It doesn’t matter if you feel like your brother/ sister is from a different planet they are blood and you are going to have to deal with them your entire life. You might as well suck it up and deal with it.

2. “A little party never killed nobody” (Fergie)

Just like Fergie croons in her swing/ techno anthem “All we got” (you know that song from the Great Gatsby, yes, THAT song) “A little party never killed nobody”. So get out there and let loose its not going to kill you.


3. It is okay to get angry

Anger is an important emotion, it reminds us of our morals and it helps us consider others feelings. It is also a way to convey to others that you don’t like what they’re doing. It is a sort of release, without anger we would explode, probably.


4. “Let your freak flag fly”

YOU ARE UNIQUE! No seriously it doesn’t matter if you like My Little Pony/Star Trek crossover FanFiction, you do you. Here is a little secret: there’s no “normal”, we are all different and idiosyncratic. There is no chart out there measuring your normality so don’t be afraid to be yourself.


5. Sometimes parents suck (but that’s okay)

Remember that time when you were a kid and your mum/dad refused to buy you that toy that you absolutely needed. Or the time you were going to die if you didn’t go to THE party of the year and your parents made you stay home. Sometimes parents SUCK, but its okay that’s the way they show their love. For all you know that shirt could of looked horrible on you and the party, it was a total bust.

6. You can totally rock ANY outfit

Who cares if its not “fashionable” if it makes you feel sexy and confident then go ahead and ROCK it.

7. “Sometimes you need to go back before you can move on”

We have memories for a reason, they are there to help us grow and develop into better human beings. Remember in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” how Dumbledore had to use the pensieve to relieve his memories, without those memories they may have never found Barty Crouch Jr.


8. Everybody’s safe word should be keep going

Okay I’ll admit this one sounds a little weird but stick with me (because I’m not talking BDSM). I’m not talking “safe” as in mortal danger, I’m talking being afraid to go sky diving. When you feel like you can’t do something, keep going.
