A Worthy Showcase of Hader and Wiig’s Dramatic Chops
Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader are such comedy wunderkinds that a dramatic role sounds like a waste. We can picture Wiig screwing around a room with the pizazz of Carol Burnett, with Hader, alongside her, spitting out wicked lines in a wacky voice. Though The Skeleton Twins has a handful of funny moments, it is first and foremost a gloomy drama; we may all love Wiig and Hader’s antics on Saturday Night Live, but they are blessed with some serious acting talent. It’s the Double Indemnity to their Ball of Fire, the War and Peace to their Sabrina.

Twins Maggie (Wiig) and Milo (Hader) have been estranged for 10 years. They’re reacquainted, however, when Maggie receives a call from an unknown number; she is informed that Milo has attempted suicide. In one hand, she holds the phone. In the other is a smattering of pills. It’s a coincidence that seems as though God set it up just for them. Maggie immediately invites Milo to stay with her and her picture perfect husband, Lance (Luke Wilson), in their suburban New York home; but just as they begin to reconnect, they are forced to face their innermost demons.

Milo has been living in Los Angeles for a decade, desperate to become a famous actor. He’s seen little success, his life marred with constant disappointment. Maggie knows that she has married a good man, but she is bored with her comfortable, predictable marriage; she’s partaken in several affairs and has purposely destroyed any chances of having a baby, something Lance dreams of.

The people in The Skeleton Twins aren’t unstable in a melodramatic fashion. They are disappointed with their lives, ready to do something drastic just to inject meaning into their veins. Milo thought he’d be the bullied outsider that could, one day, come to a class reunion and laugh at his balding, middling tormentors. Maggie thought that she could live in domestic bliss and stay within that bliss. But it doesn’t happen.

The film explores several relationships, going back and forth between Milo and Maggie, Milo and his ex-lover, Rich (Ty Burrell), who destroyed his teenage years, and the siblings and their flighty mother (Joanna Gleason). The conversations glide over and under sheer wit and blood- letting, the characters are written with hundreds of layers. They hit close to home, making us question our own self-confidence and achievements.

But it’s one of those films in which the biggest successes come from the actors. If they didn’t have chemistry, The Skeleton Twins would never work. Yet the emotional bonds (good or bad) between the actors in the film are so instantaneously genuine that there is a fluidity that makes the anguish all the more real. The laughs are quick, but they are consistently overtaken by the somber sequences that follow them. Because, in real life, a joke can be thrown off a roof if you open up an old wound.

Review By: blakiepeterson
life is good as long as there is a firm helping-hand whenever it is needed
In viewing of its title, this dark comedy features Saturday NIGHT LIVE alumni Hader and Wigg doesn’t look like a gag-packed farce as one may preconceive, THE SKELETON TWINS is director Craig Johnson’s second film, it became a Sundance darling in 2014, and surges onto the top-tier of USA’s indie output last year, so I am tempted to check whether or not it deserves the merits.

In general terms, the film can be encapsulated as follows: two siblings whose father committed suicide in their early age and when they grow up, their neglectful mother tries too hard to overcompensate with mental cleansing process (“a purity emerges from your crown chakra”!); a wife who has an incorrigible compulsion to have sex with other men and a shirker who takes birth control while agreeing on making a baby with her husband; a man full of gay clichés suffers from incessant depression, who is also a victim of child molestation, but worst of all, years later he is still lingering on with the perpetrator, yet in his defense it was just a normal love affair between an underage student and his professor. And spoilers alert, the film begins and ends with (multiple) suicidal attempts. Doesn’t sound like a comedy, right? Credits must be munificently given to Johnson and his co-writer Mark Heyman, who briskly spike humour and enlightenment (peaked-in-highschool revelation) into the cliché-ridden storyline, and never wear out viewers to tedium.

Wigg is the said wife Maggie and Bader is her twin gay brother Milo, who has distanced themselves through years and basically haven’t seen each other for a decade, as the synopsis on the movie’s IMDb page intriguingly put “having both coincidentally cheated death on the same day…”, my initial response is that there must be some mysterious twins telepathy involved, but surprisingly (in a good way), it turns out to be a sheer coincidence roots in a plausible ground, and the plot doesn’t cling too much to it either, the re-bonding process between Maggie and Milo is the best part of this indie fare since Wigg and Hader is so unbelievably adroit in improvisation due to their years-long co-acting experience and tacit understanding, despite that the fart gag still pungently re-affirms that homespun American comedy haven’t evolved much from their toilet fixations, even in low-budget productions. And among the comical parts, the highlight belongs to their impeccable lip- syncing battle of Starship’s NOTHING IS GONNA STOP US NOW, definitely an official invitation to the new variety show LIP SYNC BATTLE.

Kristen Wigg’s box-office alpha-comedienne crown may be unexpectedly upstaged by Melissa McCarthy after the huge success of BRIDESMAIDS (2011, 7/10), but she steadfastly steers her non-mainstream career path with interesting projects like this where she unleashes incredible chops both in comic timing and wry drama scenes, as she can pull off a captivating brooding when silence trumps words. Bill Hader is equally admirable, who minces his manner to give Milo the effeminate touch which doesn’t incline to be offensive, and sculpts a life-affirming revelation in the end. Ty Burrell plays against the grain as a weak-minded closet gay man and Luke Wilson plays the stereotype of a perfect husband material, each respectively embodies the extremities of the misery of a secretive life and the sadness of being a all-too-good duck soup without any secrets, after all, we are more at ease dwelling in between, just like Maggie and Milo, life is good as long as there is a firm helping-hand whenever it is needed.
