Aviously

Because, aviously…

Step Sisters is a Netflix original comedy movie about a sorority in despair that needs a little help from their sisters.

I did not know what to expect out of this movie, but it didn’t disappoint, along the lines of Step Up.

The movie focuses on Theta member Jamilah (Megalyn Echikunwoke), who is trying to get into Harvard, without the help of her parents giving their Legacy endorsements. She has a white boyfriend (Matt McGorry, Bennett from OITNB) who is majoring in African-American studies, and her white best friend Beth, played by the whitest girl on TV (Eden Sher from The Middle), who is a part of Sigma Beta Beta (SBB).

After an SBB party goes off the rails, ending up in a viral video, the Dean (Robert Curtis Brown) threatens to pull their charter if they can’t get their act together. He offers his assistant, Jamilah, an endorsement to Harvard in return for cleaning their image up. His suggestion? She should teach them to do that “stepping thingy”, which has always been a “black Greek thing”. Will she be able to get these white girls to step in time for the big competition?

You think white girls can’t struggle? The struggle is real.

Other SBB members include their President, Danielle (Lyndon Smith), Southern belle Libby (Gabe Golightly, from Red Oaks (Seasons 1, 2, or 3), and Amber (Alessandra Torresani).

This is a solid movie, getting an 8.5 out of 10.

Btw, if you are looking for other Netflix original comedy movies, try out Special Correspondents, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, or The Do-Over, but maybe stay away from Girlfriend’s Day?
