Review: I quite enjoyed this witty drama about a brother and sister who both have troubled issues in there personal life's. The brother, who suffers from depression, tries to commit suicide and the only point of contact that the hospital have, is his sister who he hasn't seen in 10 years. She decides to take him in to make sure that he doesn't attempt suicide again, and they soon get back there close relationship that they both have truly missed. The brother finds out that his sister also has some personal issues to deal with so they both help each other through there troubled times. I found it to be a sweet movie about a brother and sisters love for each other. There are a few funny scenes, like when there miming to each other and when they go out for Halloween but there issues in there life's are still not resolved so they are quickly brought back to reality. I really liked the chemistry between Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig and storyline seemed real and well written. I honestly thought that it was going to be a straight out comedy, so I was surprised to see a suicide attempt, right at the beginning of the movie. Anyway, I personally enjoyed the film and it really does show that you don't have to have a massive budget to make a decent movie. Enjoyable!
Round-Up: Since the Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig has become a top name in her genre. With movies like the Anchorman 2, Her and The Secret Life Of Walter Witty, which all came out last year, you can tell that her unique subtle comedy style is in demand at the moment. The same goes for Bill Hader who was also in Her and also starred in 22 Jump Street and Superbad. He has voiced quite a few animated movies as well so he's also in demand at the moment. Luke Wilson was great and the girls boyfriend and Ty Burrell also played his part well. In all, it's a good movie with a great mixture of drama and comedy.
Budget: $1million Worldwide Gross: $6million
I recommend this movie to people who are into their drama/comedies about a brother and sister who help each other through there personal problems. 6/10
