There are few things we like better than a sassy, tell-it-like-it-is duo, except maybe a sassy, you-go-girl trio. (Yep, we're thinking of the Parton-Fonda-Tomlin triumvirate from "9 to 5" -- weren't you?) And when you add gumption to the sassy, paint us pleased.
The full-of-pluck, straight from the Big Apple Apple Sisters have got gumption, buckets of it, and how; this comedy-purveying threesome has a semi-wholesome, retro vibe -- think '40s hairdos and gee-whiz antics -- with a contemporary (read: edgy) sensibility. Can corn really substitute for candy, though? The Apple Sisters says it can, so we believe them.
Funny-loving fans can expect a bright pink Valentine's thread running through the gingham-and-guffaws proceedings; the title is, after all, "Be Mine -- Or Else." Okay, okay already!
