Tina Fey and Amy Poehler slayed as the hosts of SNL on December 19. We knew they were going to be good, but they blew our minds with just how good they were. One of the most important sketches was “Tina & Amy’s Dope Squad.” And no, it isn’t the basic Taylor Swift kind of squad. The sketch begins with Tina and Amy in a press interview for Sisters, talking to a reporter from Pop News Daily After Show Podcast.JPEG (a fine publication, no doubt), played by Aidy Bryant, about how they do it all.

I’m so excited for tonight’s big film premiere! Of course, I’m talking about Sisters. The Tina Fey/Amy Poehler comedy is finally in theaters after many months of breathless speculation and feminist fantasizing. And the good news is—it’s totally entertaining and definitely worth the wait. The film centers on the Ellis sisters (Fey and Poehler), two 30-something sibs tasked with cleaning out their shared childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family home.
Right about now I’m having some major flashbacks to the 90s—maybe it’s because the holidays always bring childhood memories to the forefront. Really, I’m just thinking about loafing in my grandma’s living room and watching Home Alone on repeat. There was something about Macauly Culkin’s character, a lone eight-year-old struggling to defend himself (Kevin McCallister) in a Chicago suburb that aroused a special breed of elementary school fear in me as I shoveled lukewarm macaroni noodles down my throat.
