The Skeleton Twins: Why this title?????
Comic actors long to be taken seriously. As if being successfully funny isn't enough.
The Movie Slut suspects that's why Bill Hader and Kritsen Wiig signed on to this dud in which they play twins, who've been separated for ten years and unite under sad circumstances only learn how much they have in common.
Too bad what they have in common are "coping" mechanisms that include getting drunk out of their minds though they're not averse to a little weed now and then. And just so we know these guys can still be funny, some fart jokes are thrown in for good measure. And a vomiting scene, too. So been there, seen that.
Yes, they grew up in a dysfunctional family, but, hey, does that give them license to bore us on the big screen?
