Tara, Tia, and Diamond are cousins raised as sisters by their grandmother Pat. At 33, Tara, a cop, is the first to move out while her younger sisters, Tia and Diamond, still live at home, with Tia working in cosmetology part-time and Diamond training to be a fighter with one of her close friends, Kevin. But, while things were originally stable and quiet, the drama starts.

To begin, there is Trae, Diamond’s boyfriend, who is a thug of some kind, that is insecure about her friendship with Kevin – albeit for a good reason. However, the big issue is Pat hiding that she is deeply in debt and that she has cancer. The cancer was a surprise since Pat has been avoiding seeing a doctor, partly due to not having insurance. Then, to make matters worse, the cost of everything is $800,000, and the family has nowhere near that kind of money.

So, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Tara is the eldest of the three sisters and has recently become a cop after getting help from a friend to get on the force.

Diamond is the youngest of the sisters and also the one Pat has reason to worry about the most. Mainly since she has never held a full-time job, and while she is training to be a fighter, she hasn’t had a notable match yet.


Pat (Cocoa Brown)

Pat is the matriarch of the family who has taken care of not only her grandkids, but many in the neighborhood.

Our Rating: Mixed (Divisive)

Who Is This For?

For those who like simple heist films that don’t go into excessive detail and mainly are about the drama between people and the consequences of their actions.


Engaging Performances

While the dialog or performances won’t win anyone a reward, there is no denying that you’ll know everyone’s name, what is going on, and will wonder about their lives outside of what’s going on with Pat. The best way to put it is, there is something so raw about these characters that the lack of polish opens the door for you to think anything is possible since there doesn’t appear to be a commitment to any trope or generic arc.

Tara is a cop, but with how things are going at home, with Diamond thinking of robbing people, will she put the badge down and join the cause? Tia, who isn’t doing the best financially and apparently is dating someone in law enforcement, far outranking Tara, will he choose work over her? Diamond has Kevin chasing her tail and Trae, with neither man respecting the other. So how will that be resolved?

Add in a slew of underdeveloped supporting characters, and you got what feels like an extended TV pilot teasing you about what could come next.

Low Points

It Rushes Through Anything Worth Noting – Or Doesn’t Address It

A lot of information is just not gone into when it comes to “Sisters.” If all three girls are cousins, who and where are their parents? We know at least two lose their mother in the beginning, but where are their fathers and that side of the family? Why is Diamond, who has to be at least in her mid-twenties, someone who has never had a job? Also, how did she meet Trae, and considering how bad Kevin seems to have it for her, why aren’t they together?

Throw in why Tara became a cop and what did Pat do for a living, and you find yourself going from basic get-to-know-you questions to feeling like there are so many plot holes all over the place and an utter lack of development of these characters – if not information dropped with so little care that it can easily fly by the audience. The combination takes away from the quality of the film, and as things ramp up, and you, assumingly, are supposed to care about the characters as much as the action – sometimes, it is hard to.

But, here is the thing with the action: the planning for any and all heists barely happens. Everything operates on someone getting riled up, trusting another person to plan things off-screen, we watch a minute or two of the robbery, and the results are often the ladies being in over their heads and the planning we don’t see seemingly being how much planning that was done. It’s as if, to keep the pacing up, anything that would require exploring, establishing who is who, how they got the money, etc, is set aside.

On The Fence

How It Ends

Throughout “Sisters,” there are multiple heists, and I’d submit, sometimes you want to get excited as Tia talks tough, Diamond is desperate, and Tara feels, as the oldest among them, she has to be supportive. However, the ending leaves you in a place where, if you weren’t the type to watch credits or check for post-credit scenes, you’d feel left on a cliffhanger.

Now, this isn’t to say the ending, after the credits, provides an epilogue and idea of what happened to everyone, but at least you can attempt to fill in the blanks with your own imagination.

Sisters (2023) - Review Summary


When it comes to “Sisters,” it is reminiscent of movies in the past that were in the bargain bin at Walmart, Blockbuster, and other stores. But, I wouldn’t say it qualifies as being so bad it is good, but rather having potential that doesn’t get realized, for it doesn’t trust that its audience won’t get bored.
