Your Sister's Sister Reviews

It's comforting to watching dramatic and comic fiction regarding the things some of us actually have to deal with in life. When done right, those kinds of films are worth your time. YOUR SISTER'S SISTER happens to be one of them.

Deadspin

Even when the story line tries to wrench the characters in a certain direction, they keep returning to something real and honest. I want these people to be my friends.

The Patriot Ledger

Don't be surprised if you find yourself nodding off mid-movie, bored silly by a trio of good actors stuck in a dull scenario about a young man caught in a highly implausible kerfuffle involving two sisters and a leaky condom.

Austin American-Statesman

It's not rollicking summertime fare, and it won't offer easy answers. But it's an entertaining failure -- just like its characters.

Movies that start well and end badly occur often enough, and yet even knowing that is no preparation for what happens to Your Sister's Sister.

Laramie Movie Scope

There is some witty banter and some interesting developments. The acting is solid by the three leads.

I think I need a break from Mark Duplass for awhile. At least, from the Mark Duplass who isn't arguing about fantasy football with Ruxin and Taco.

Rob Humanick
Projection Booth

What could have been trite male wish-fulfillment is instead beholden to genuinely messy revelations: life as a tattered, living quilt we sew and wear as one.

FILMINK (Australia)

It's in the completely natural interactions between this gifted cast that the film really hits its groove.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

For a film that relies on conversation and connection, it's awfully plot-heavy, full of "Aha!" dramatic revelations that feel more suited to a soap opera than an indie dramedy.

The Aristocrat

This lo-fi comedy is big on charm but was a little too shaggy for my taste.

Mary Clare Waireri
Fan The Fire

Although the action of Your Sister's Sister soars to an ultimately implausible conclusion, solid performances from Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt keep the overall piece afloat.

We Got This Covered

Your Sister's Sister is a fine piece of character observation. It's low-key, casual, and tremendously insightful. It won't be for everybody, but that's a good thing. It's a strong, focused piece of work.

One of the most purely pleasurable 'grown-up' films I've seen this year.

A trident of terrifically earthy performances grounds this sharp, twist-laden romantic comedy.

Trespass

A wonderfully funny and uncharacteristically easy take on a genre that has been in disrepair for some time.

The Age (Australia)

Deceptively meandering and unexpectedly complex, Your Sister's Sister combines a poignant, funny directness with a teasing incompleteness.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

Right from the get-go, this indie American talkfest exudes a confidence, a composure and, dare I say it, a cool that extinguishes any cynicism in the room.

Structured more as a comedy than a drama, Your Sister's Sister is easy to like.

Cinema Autopsy

Everything that takes place on screen feels convincing as Shelton is more concerned with representing her characters truthfully rather than pushing an agenda.
