Review rate : B+

“..though the script by Johnson and Mark Heyman doesn't break new ground, Johnson directs the film with a confident coolness that elevates the material in concert with the essential lead performances..”
by Adam Chitwood [Collider]
Review rate : B

“..the movie has a conventional heartstrings-pulling approach embedded in its bones, and the finale arrives with an obvious and fairly unbelievable climax that reeks of forced sentimentalism..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]
“..the biggest surprise for audiences expecting plenty of laughs will be just how effectively both thesps handle the weightier dramatic material in the screenplay co-written by college pals Johnson and Mark Heyman..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
4 of 5

“..nothing can completely overcome Hader and Wiig's excellence in exploring the joys and pains of such a close familial bond. If there was a film that truly puts their SNL past in the rear view mirror, The Skeleton Twins is it..”
by Travis Hopson [Examiner.com]
“..a bittersweet but refreshing tonic that will leave audiences with a big, dopey smile on their faces..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
