Your Sister's Sister Reviews

Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

Will Leitch

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.

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.

Laramie Movie Scope

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

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.

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

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.

Glenn Dunks

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.

The Sunday Age

The rom-com twists don't always work, but it's easy to fall for stars who clearly love acting together - particularly Blunt, who could make a paper bag dazzle.

Urban Cinefile

The pleasures of this rom-com love triangle come from the performances, which beautifully describe the awkwardness, anxiety, sincerity and humour of the situation

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Enjoyable but surprisingly conventional contemporary (i.e., sexually frank) romantic comedy...

The dialogue feels organic and smart - like everyday conversation, only with words you got to try out first.
