Sisters – sometimes inseparable, sometimes tearing at each others’ throats, and sometimes stealing each others’ clothes. Right? Yep, any sister worth her salt would have at least one item in her wardrobe worth stealing. Otherwise, what’s the point? (Hey, at least it’s just clothes and accessories, not men.)

Dynamics for sisters can be tricky. But if you have one, you know that they’re indispensable. From calling your bluff (you are not making rent even though you say you are fine), telling you truths no-one else would ever dare (that clingy dress which you think is sexy actually emphasises your wobbly bits), to cleaning up messes (emotional ones or literal chaos), your sister is truly a rock you know you can depend on.

Which is what happens in Sisters. It stars the indefatigable Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two award-winning comedians whose chemistry is so solid, they could very well be biological sisters. In the film, Fey and Poehler play sisters who are summoned home to clean out their bedroom when their parents put up the property for sale. Do they do exactly what they’re told? Of course not. But you definitely want to be invited to their party!

Here they are, as well as four other sister pairings you’d want to party with, too.

Fey and Poehler go way back. They first met in 1993 at Chicago’s ImprovOlympic, when both were in their early 20s, and went on to start an improv team. Fey moved to New York to write on Saturday Night Live in 1997 and Poehler finally followed in 2001, after repeated invitations from Fey. Their legendary friendship came to public knowledge in 2004, when both ladies co-anchored a segment on Saturday Night Live. They went on to star in their own respective television series, 30 Rock (Tina Fey) and Parks and Rec (Amy Poehler), before finally being united in Sisters.

2. Kate & Pippa Middleton

We have this odd fascination with royalty, where we want to be as close to them as possible. Calling them Kate (real name: Catherine) and Pippa (real name: Philipa) makes it sound like we’re best buddies with them! And in a way, we are – we went through a wedding with Kate and Prince William (albeit through multiple television screens) and we’re constantly scrutinising them to figure out what’s the latest fashion trend to be following.

We all love princesses, don’t we? (Though Kate is technically a Duchess).

3. Da S & Xiao S

These spunky Taiwanese sisters prove to us that sometimes, showbiz can really be in the blood. Da S’s real name is Barbie Hsu, while younger sister Xiao S is named Dee Hsu. The two spunky sisters have their own niches, with Da S conquering the drama scene (remember her in Meteor Garden?) and Xiao S dominating the hosting scene. They work just as well together though, having put out an album together (S.O.S.) which later became A.S.O.S. due to copyright issues.

Guess they really put the S in Sisters!

4. Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen

Despite looking identical, they’re actually fraternal twins, according to a New York Times article. That’s pretty unbelievable, given that both of them took turns playing their very first role, Michelle Tanner, on television! But after a successful screen career, they eventually quit in 2012 to focus on their fashion line. We’ve seen these child stars grow up, and while they’ve had their fair share of scandals in the media, ultimately they’ve been a pair of the rare few child stars who’ve enjoyed continued success in adulthood.

5. Dakota & Elle Fanning

These are the two youngest girls on the list, with Dakota Fanning barely being over 21 (she just turned 22 in February). They’re among the most talented actresses for their age groups, having snagged acting roles even before attending Primary (Elementary in the US) school! Unlike most other child actresses, they’re known for their dedication and talent at their craft, rather than being cute and chirpy. That makes them even more amazing – can you imagine being so focused at the age of six?

Whichever sister pair you can best identify with, the two (or more) of you would enjoy laughing at Fey and Poehler’s shenanigans in Sisters!
