Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette, Shirley MacLaine, Mark Feuerstein, Richard Burgi

"Friends. Rivals. Sisters."

Chick Lit flick

Based on Jennifer Weiner's chick lit novel, which I never read, this movie is about two sisters who are complete opposite. One is a party gal type who is fancy free and just goes from one job to another while her older sister, Rose is a successful lawyer. Soon the two of them have a falling out after Rose catches Maggie in bed with a guy she dated briefly. Younger sister hies off to their grandmother in a retired seniors community, finds job and mends her partying ways. Older sister takes leave of absense from her firm, becomes a dogwalker, meets a nice Jewish guy, he proposes, she accepts. The two sisters reconcile, Rose gets married, end of story. Heh.
That simple, no major plot, no crime to solve, no brainer, just a feel good picture. Toni Collette and Shirley Maclaine are good as usual, I won't comment much on Cameron Diaz's acting abilities (I'm not her biggest fan) but this role really fits her, ditzy and flirtatious party animal. I enjoyed the movie because it relates this special bond between sisters, no matter what happens in life, she will always be your sister. Sisters rulez!
