Angelica Schuyler makes a cameo too! In the film she's married to Jimmy Jam from Parks & Rec.
(Renee Elise Goldsberry and Jon Glaser)

The 'moral' and overall plot didn't do much for me. The jokes did. A lot.

DigDoug, I totally spotted that and had to keep from singing "Angelica!" to myself every time she was on screen.

Also agree about the plot. The stakes were extremely low and I didn't care - it was all about the jokes, and watching more than a half-dozen amazing comedic actors play off each other.

One thing that I really appreciated was that they started off from a place of the sisters loving each other. (That scene when Maura picks up Kate at the airport and they can't stop touching each other - it was a small touch but I loved it.) I expected it to be about two sisters who hate each other because they're so different, but then have to learn to love each other, so it was refreshing that they went the other way with it: they love each other but don't always understand each other, which felt a lot more real.
