Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Where restraint might have raised up My Sister's Keeper, a heavy hand has brought it down.
Rotten: My Sister's Keeper targets tear ducts so ruthlessly, it might as well be sponsored by Kleenex.
Fresh: I found the movie to be really tough and challenging and enjoyable.
Fresh: As manufactured Disease of the Week weepies go, Nick Cassavetes's drama based on a Jodi Picoult bestseller, is surprisingly moving.
if i had not read the book, i would give a 5 star review...however...the ending of the book was why i loved the story so much...the director should've stuck with the book's ending...
The Best Movie Ever!!!
This was the best movie I have seen in a long time. Having cancer myself, I really thought this movie got to the point of how kids with cancer have to deal with some of the deciions their parents make. I regret not reading the book first (I didn't know about the book until I saw the movie), but I did not regret buying this movie!!! I also recommend the soundtrack.
My Sister's Keeper (2009)
This movie was so wonderful and true to life. Having cancer myself as a child, it helped me realize how hard it is for parents to make life or death decisions for their children! Go see it!
