Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the same way that "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" redefined Jim Carrey, this affecting and poignant drama-with-laughs shatters your expectations of Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"It may not always work as a drama but The Skeleton Twins proves to be a fine showcase for Wiig and Hader, showing they are both capable of dramatic material."
‑ Cory Everett, The Playlist
"A brief, grounded, entertaining comedy with a few rich characters, a few thin ones and some unachieved ambitions."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Hader and Wiig's comedy credentials are well established and a scene in which they bond while miming Starship's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now is a tour de force - but they're equally adept with the weightier material."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Daily Telegraph
"How can you hate a movie that has a giggly Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig making fart noises at each other?"
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"The rapport between Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig is obvious from their first moment together in The Skeleton Twins, and why shouldn't it be?"
‑ Travis Hopson,
"It is rare to see a film as tonally balanced as The Skeleton Twins. It is both a tearjerker and a crowdpleaser, often in the same scene."
‑ Brian Tallerico, Film Threat
"Caustically wry and cloyingly sentimental, The Skeleton Twins is a crowdpleaser."
‑ David D'Arcy, Screen International
"If Hader has the benefit of slightly more screen time, Wiig is no less impressive as a woman quietly falling completely apart."
‑ Geoffrey Berkshire, Variety
"One of the best films to emerge from this year's Sundance, with an unexpectedly great performance by Bill Hader."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"The Skeleton Twins is a wonderful comedy-drama made with heart and filled with plenty of broken ones."
‑ Dominic Mill, We Got This Covered
