Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If a movie with suicide as a central theme can be deemed funny, then writer/director Craig Johnson has pulled it off, mixing heartache and humor and giving Wiig, especially, the opportunity to shine. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sep 26, 2014

Fresh: "The Skeleton Twins" is a lovingly calibrated mix of heartbreak and hopefulness, guilt and the will to do better. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Sep 26, 2014

Fresh: The Skeleton Twins is all the better for keeping us guessing as to its intentions, because that makes it more true to life. Sometimes you have to smile through the tears, and vice-versa. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Sep 26, 2014

Fresh: Johnson's unfussy direction serves as a fine showcase for the two SNL veterans to demonstrate how their comic shorthand plays equally well in a slightly darker register. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Sep 26, 2014

Customer Reviews

Pretty dreary

Definitely misadvertized. They put every funny scene in the trailer, and the rest of the movie is dark and somewhat dreary. There is certainly a novelty of taking two great comedians and asking them not to be funny, and they show some decent acting chops. Ultimately do not watch if you in any way want to watch a comedy. If you feel like a ponderous reflection on suicide and a life filled with unfulfilled longing then go right ahead.

Love this movie! Had to own it!

Skeleton Twins is a touching story of siblings in need of each other's forgiveness and acceptance. I laughed and I cried. A triumphant film in my opinion!

Love, Love, Love

I have already seen this movie three times in the theaters and am so thrilled that I was able to already pre-order the movie via iTunes. This sensitive and comedic telling of two depressed siblings after the death of their father is one of the best movies I have seen in years. I can’t recommend it enough.
