Consensus: Superbly acted and satisfyingly engaging, Your Sister's Sister subverts rom-com conventions with sensitive direction, an unconventional screenplay, and a big heart.

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.

Romantic, funny, surprising and thoroughly involving, Your Sister's Sister is the rare film you give yourself over to completely.

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.

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.

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.

The Patriot Ledger

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.

It certainly shows that fine films don't need big budgets, capturing some sweet lightning in an arresting bottle indeed.

This is a smart, moving film that's also very, very funny.

It's not rollicking summertime fare, and it won't offer easy answers. But it's an entertaining failure -- just like its characters.

A good low budget movie, but the little twist at the end really annoyed me, as did Iris's acceptance of it. To me, what Hannah did was really wrong and… More
