Giovanni Ribisi could be his generation's Dustin Hoffman... he could also be his generation's Richard Benjamin...

For what is supposed to be a poignant love story, The Other Sister fails to show much spark.

The film pushes the outer limits of just how long anyone with a normal I.Q. can watch what should be a TV sitcom.

Grotesquely sentimental, shamelessly manipulative and fundamentally bad.

Never manages more than a glib, TV movie-of- the-week glance at their lives.

Everything is reduced to a transparent formula. And everyone plays their schematic part.

Warm-hearted but ultimately soft!

The surprises are interesting, but not enough to save the film from itself.

This movie offers itself to us like a cow with too many udders.

It's as dull as a butter knife and slowed to interminable mediocrity, and inadvertently brings to mind the title of Marshall's autobiography: "Wake Me When It's Funny."

It has all the right cast members...but it cripples them with the screenplay.

The press notes describe The Other Sister as 'uplifting' and 'bittersweet'; a more accurate description would be 'insulting.'

Kalamazoo Gazette

instead of frank talk about real issues, "Sister" stubbornly accentuates the positive, offering up gorgeous houses and a sweeping pop soundtrack instead of any sort of insight into the problems a woman in Carla's situation might face.
