We live in a world, known commonly as "the Internet," where everyone has an opinion and always thinks you're wrong, but there's one thing that unites us: we all think Meryl Streep and Tina Fey are awesome. The two queens of their respective domains-- Streep doing drama and comedy and whatever else she wants in the movies, Fey being hilarious on TV-- are probably the two people you'd most want to invite to Thanksgiving, but who actually dreamed until now that they'd ever team up onscreen?

Believe it or not, that's precisely what we're about to get. THR is reporting that Streep and Fey will play a mother and daughter pair in Mommy & Me, a comedy that-- oh, now this is just too good-- will be directed by Stanley Tucci for Sony. Not only did Tucci and Streep make a bang-up team in both The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia, but Tucci is fresh off directing the Broadway revival of Lend Me A Tenor, which won near universal critical acclaim. He may or may not actually have a role in the movie, but his comedic gifts behind the camera may be eve more important at this point.

Sorry to sound like a ridiculously uncritical fangirl right now, but let me put this in superhero terms you can understand: this is like if The Avengers and the Justice League teamed up together to fight Kim Jong-Il and Hitler at the same time. This is the best collaboration imaginable, and something I'll have a hard time not demanding to see, like, this instant. No, Fey's on-screen track record has not been that great since Mean Girls, but Tucci is doubtlessly a better director than Date Night's Shawn Levy and Baby Mama's Michael McCullers. At least, he'd better be. I can't handle another disappointment like that.
