Having both coincidentally cheated death on the same day, estranged twins reunite with the possibility of mending their relationship. (IMDb)
The screenplay here is fairly formulaic in structure as far as indie dramedys go, with cycles of music-video scenes of personal reflection or vague comedic resolve following those of conflict. That said, its execution is excellent (thanks to wonderfully genuine performances from Hader, Wiig, and Wilson), its central relationship unique (i.e. non-romantic), and its subject matter darker (albeit resolved in a disappointingly easy ending) which set it a step above many of its genre counterparts.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
I just watched this yesterday and yeah, the “execution is excellent” is the perfect way to describe this movie. Lesser filmmakers could have really botched this, but it’s actually quite good!
here’s my take:
