The gifted entertainer has mostly partaken in comedic works throughout her career, with her first meaningful film role in the 2004 flick Mean Girls. Let’s dive into three funniest Tina Fey’s films:
Date Night (2010)
Phil (Steve Carrell) and Claire Foster (Tina Fey) are an average couple living in suburban New Jersey with their kids. After deciding to take a break from their hectic lives, the two head to New York City to eat dinner at a fancy restaurant in hopes of some excitement for their date night.
Nevertheless, the NYC restaurant is jam-packed, leading the sneaky Phil to just take someone else’s table. Big mistake. Now known as the Tripplehorns, the couple is confronted by two crooked detectives (Common and Jimmi Simpson) demanding for a flash drive that is connected to a major mob boss (Ray Liotta).
Looks like date night has been injected with excitement as this clueless couple must scramble around NYC to get their fake identities cleared from whatever it is they are involved in!
As they become more immersed in this case, they realize there is no choice but to find the coveted flash drive and track down the leader of the operation who needs it. In between, they get caught up in a car chase, dead ends, and receive some help from an unlikely source.
This film also stars Mark Wahlberg, J.B. Smoove, Mila Kunis, James Franco, and Taraji P. Henson.
Baby Mama (2008)
Businesswoman Kate Holbrook (Tina Fey) is approaching the big 4-0, and realizes now is a better time than any to have a child. However, the circumstances for the single lady result in needing a surrogate. Enter Angie Ostrowski (Amy Poehler), a woman who could use the cash that comes with being a surrogate. The two decide to go forth with the process, and Angie needs to end up living with Kate too.
As the two different women clash, they realize dealing with each other is a must at least until the baby is born. However, the cunning Angie is only after the cash that comes with being a surrogate mother, and is not pregnant at all!
The “surrogate” tries to keep Kate in the dark, but in a major twist of events, Angie discovers she is pregnant for real with a child that’s hers! How will Angie break the news to Kate? How will Kate take the news? Will this mess be assorted in the right way?!
This film also stars Steve Martin, Dax Shepard, Sigourney Weaver, and Greg Kinnear.
Two of the funniest actresses in entertainment work alongside each other in this film as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler star as sisters in Sisters.
Maura (Poehler) and Kate Ellis (Fey) are two grown-up siblings who are told that their childhood home is being sold by their parents. Now, the two Ellis sisters must travel to their old house and pack up their old things while basking in the memories from their early days.
Wanting to go out in style, the sisters scheme and decide to host a moving-away shindig in the old house with their high school buddies before they leave for good. The epic rager, in turn, ends up escalating in rowdiness and threatens to significantly damage the house. Thus, the sisters must be prepared to deal with the consequences that ensue!
