[Hader] resists the temptation to go for easy laughs and broad strokes and delivers something darker and deeper. It's a shockingly vulnerable performance… -- Grade: B+
Rating: 4/5 -- The laughs are here, but they are tempered by bruising regrets and simmering grudges in this elegant study of a sibling relationship in crisis. Full Review
THE SKELETON TWINS is a well-written and acted movie about contemporary life that doesn’t strain for melodrama….A small, precise, character-driven vignette…
New York Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- Hader and Wiig dig deepest and strike the truest chords when the twins' defenses are down....It hits you where it hurts.
4 stars out of 5 -- Like Jason Reitman's YOUNG ADULT, this is a film cosy in scale but leaking pain, its bent-out-of-shape inhabitants performing stock takes on life.
Hader and Wiig really do seem related. And both actors handle the balance between drama and comedy with aplomb. -- Grade: B-
Despite occasional charming moments and a generally solid ensemble, The Skeleton Twins doesn't distinguish itself in any memorable way. Full Review
