Last weekend’s release of Because I Said So reminded me of the rich (read: hot) and varied (read: still hot) history of cinematic sister acts. Whether on the big or small screen, saucy siblings have provided a seemingly endless source of comedy, drama and eye candy.
Sure, there have been the bad seeds (hello, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?) and the disturbing seeds (I still carry the scars from an unsuspecting viewing of Sister My Sister). But it seems that, when it comes to sisters, three is the charm. Must be something to that power of three after all. Here’s a breakdown of the most formidable sisterly trios:
Hanging Up — The Mozell sisters
Inventing the Abbotts — The Abbott sisters
Because I Said So — The Wilder sisters
The Powerpuff Girls — Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup
