Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Chase Whale,
"Romantic, funny, surprising and thoroughly involving, Your Sister's Sister is the rare film you give yourself over to completely."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"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."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"There is some witty banter and some interesting developments. The acting is solid by the three leads."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"It's in the completely natural interactions between this gifted cast that the film really hits its groove."
‑ Cara Nash, FILMINK (Australia)
"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."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"There's a nice, loose-limbed improvisatory feeling to "Your Sister's Sister," a quality that identifies it as the work of artisans, not assembly-line professionals."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"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."
‑ Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
"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."
‑ Stephen Silver, EntertainmentTell
"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."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"It certainly shows that fine films don't need big budgets, capturing some sweet lightning in an arresting bottle indeed."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"This is a smart, moving film that's also very, very funny."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"It's not rollicking summertime fare, and it won't offer easy answers. But it's an entertaining failure -- just like its characters."
‑ Charles Ealy, Austin American-Statesman
"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."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"This lo-fi comedy is big on charm but was a little too shaggy for my taste."
‑ Adam Ross, The Aristocrat
