Though it took me like a week to track down someone who sold this on DVD (in Brazil no less), the money was well spent. Truthfully, I expected a rather so-so movie, you know, the kind you see of SyFy or Lifetime - much to my surprise, this movie was really good. Marley and Samantha Shelton have great chemistry (with each other and others) and play off each other better than many other, better known siblings (looking at you, Olsens) and their performance is rock-solid. While not the funniest comedy out there, it still gives a few laughs: the quirkiness of Melissa (Marley) against straight-man Emily (Samantha) is excellent and the dialogue flows easy. Though he is the titular character, Mark Pellegrino (as Alan) is shown very little but has his trademark menace down, as always. Next there's Misha Collins, whose character is simply outstandingly well-acted and quite hilarious. The jabs his character takes on soap operas are very accurate and very entertaining. The story is quite funny yet has sombre, sad moments that gives it a depth that draws you in and makes you sympathize with the characters - Melissa's and Emily's back-story being the main point. As for the music score, I think most of the song choices are great, though it's a little much on the chick-flick side for me personally, but it is a movie about two sisters, so I get it. I touched upon this earlier, but the writing deserves credit as well: the movie is very dependent on dialogue and it never disappoints: it's witty, sharp and funny yet contains sad moments that adds to the levity.
