    Synopsis


    The Skeleton Twins
    Craig Johnson's drama The Skeleton Twins stars Saturday Night Live alumni Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig as suicidal siblings Milo and Maggie. After Milo cuts his wrists, Maggie moves him into her home in New York where she lives with her husband (Luke Wilson). Both brother and sister are dealing with severe emotional issues stemming from their own father's suicide, as well as their absent mother. While back in his hometown, Milo reconnects with a former lover (Ty Burrell) who was also his high-school English teacher. Meanwhile, Maggie has concerns about becoming a mother, and can't keep herself from cheating on her husband with her SCUBA instructor. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      Uneasy at times, but funny when it needs to be

      When I bought this, I thought it would be much funnier than it turned out to be. I like both Hader and Wiig, and I thought the both of them together would make for a funnier movie, but this was too real at times. Worth one watch, but I don't think I would watch it repeated times

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader meld together as incredibly messed up yet, distant siblings, who are incredibly close all at the same time. Some of the side story lines can be a little drawn out, but this does not detract from the quality performance of these two SNL alums.

      The 2 SNL Alum give us a glimpse into modern family life. Sadness, depresion, thoughts of suicide and laughing with your sibling. Movie is not for everyone, but it a nice change of pace to the cookie cutter films being produced these days.

      If you like bill hader you will enjoy this movie. It's a little on the dark side but they managed to find humor in the absurdity of human nature. The Lip sync scene is the best.

      The performances from Bill Hader & Kristen Wiig are worth seeing. While this is a serious drama with some humor, it does contain one of the most joyous scenes of 2014.

      It was a fun subtle melodramatic indie film. It had some great moments and an interesting storyline on the backgrounds of the primary characters.
