Tina Fey & Jason Bateman in 'This is Where I Leave You' & 8 More Stars You'll Be Shocked to Learn Haven't Played Siblings Before

Well, it's not like they didn't warn us. After a worrisome trailer and some uninspired promotion, it's no real surprise that the movie adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's This is Where I Leave You was released to mediocre reviews. According to critics, the dysfunctional family film is as predictable as it gets, with half-hearted performances, cringeworthy dialogue, and a plot so familiar you'll be guessing the "twists" by the beginning of act two.

But there is one upside to seeing this movie — well, technically, two. Tina Fey and Jason Bateman play siblings for the first time ever, which is pretty hard to believe, considering how natural they look and act as a brother-sister pair. They're not the first co-stars, though, that you'll be surprised to learn have never before played siblings; read on for eight more.

Between Julia’s struggling marriage on Parenthood and the disaster-prone relationship Stiles had as Kat in 10 Things I Hate About You, let's hope neither “sister” relies too much on the other for relationship advice.
