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.

When the heartfelt professions of love and soul-unloading declarations of betterment are emulsified down to mush, all that remains is a swiftly evaporating run-of-the-mill residue.

The sisters are merely agents in Jack's maturation in what is ultimately a Judd Apatow film on a microbudget.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

An improvised pseudo-farce that tumbles into melodrama -- in between all the long, LOOOOoonng heart-to-heart talks.

It's pleasant as far as it goes. For all the blithe interaction among the central three performers, however, the material's conventional and predictable.

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.

The setup is intriguing, but just as Shelton gets her hands dirty with the mess her characters have made, it's winding down to a seemingly improbable conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Thrives on awkward moments.

Shelton is too much in thrall to improvisation, and letting the actors "find" their 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.

"Your Sister's Sister" follows the indie-cinema blueprint to the letter with one exception: One of the film's characters is a lesbian.

Lynn Shelton's fourth feature after her well-received "Humpday" demands more patience than understanding.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

...chick flick city...a ménage à trois-lite...agonizing to watch poor Emily Blunt laugh uproariously at contrived, slice of life conversation made with her sister
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Even amidst the excessive chatter, Emily Blunt shines most of all.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Expertly makes us squirm for about half its running time only to soothe us with empty pop-psych declarations.
June 19, 2012
The low-budget film relies on character authenticity but ultimately requires too much suspension of disbelief.
September 28, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

This time out, Shelton seems to be playing the part of someone who doesn't know how to finish what she started.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 14, 2012
Places too much external pressure on the characters; the conflict is already there.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The jabber is maddening, but with all due respect, the actors are wonderful, the performances as natural as inhaling. Still, in Emily Blunt's case, there is such a thing as too natural.
