Marjorie Turner is suffocating. Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her eight year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), of whom he is also competing for the affections. One day, she snaps while food shopping, and beds a mysterious man, who dies during the moment of passion. When she forgets her wallet, a vertical-blinds salesman finds it, and things get complicated from there.Written by

A Carl Reiner Classic?
Starring Kirstie Alley at her funniest, this comedy has what it takes to be a future classic. The cast alone makes this a perfect comedy which includes Scott Bakula, Ed O'Neill, Bill Pullman, Sam Elliott and Carrie Fisher. Not your typical female "chick flick" movie, Sibling Rivalry is the story about a housewife who has an unlikely affair with her husbands brother. Sounds like a Greek tragedy, but it is not. Sibling Rivalry plays on the coincidence factor and does it successfully. The cast of characters are as funny a the lines they say. Taking place in a small community, the events all take place in a number of days and in a small number of locations. With the feel of an independent, low budget movie, Sibling Rivalry is also a typical Carl Reiner film where everything blends together by the end. Not your typical romantic comedy like When Harry Met Sally, this is one of Carl's classic and it is just as good if not better.
