Movie Diary 12/16/2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (J.J. Abrams, 2015). For what this movie wants to do, it does just about right. Good fun, terrific new people, and a few genuinely shivery moments. That’s more than good enough.

Sisters (Jason Moore, 2015). Siblings Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take it raunchy for a party masquerading as a movie. It isn’t really a movie, but there are enough funny supporting players – plus the confident rapport of Fey and Poehler – to generate some yoks.
