Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and other cast members of their new film Sisters visited Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday, touting the merits of their film. In fact, they hoped to convince Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans to see Sisters in addition to or in place of the latest installment.

In keeping with their theme, Seth Meyers presented each of them with a Star Wars action figure, with which they were to make their case for seeing Sisters.

Ike Barinholtz went first, holding up his Kylo Ren figurine, played by Adam Driver in the film.

”Why would you see a movie with the guy from Girls when you could see a movie with the guy from The Mindy Project?” he asked.

“I am a creature. I don’t have any relatives, but if I did, I wish I could have two sisters," Tina Fey said in a really bad attempt at impersonating PZ-4CO, the new droid in Star Wars.

Amy Poehler's action figure was that of Constable Zuvio. After attempting--and failing--at pronouncing his name a total of three times, she gave up and spoke candidly about the new Star Wars film.

“I don’t care! I don’t care about Star Wars and I never f—ing did. I’m tired of pretending; I don't care about it,” she exclaimed.

Amy Poehler came around, however, and attempted to make Zuvio talk. She hid his face, saying he's embarrassed that he's seeing Star Wars.

Rachel Dratch did a Wookie impersonation that wasn't half bad, after which Maya Rudolph tried helping redeem Amy Poehler.

“I will never know the touch of a real woman. Please go see Sisters," she said in the voice of her figurine, BB-8.

Did you catch Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and the rest of their Sisters cronies on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday? Did they convince you to skip Star Wars and see Sisters instead? Will you at the very least see Sisters in addition to Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
