      Audience Member I'm not sure what it is but I liked this little gem of a film. The humour is dark and a little strange but it somehow works. Great collection of actors involved in something which no one appears to have seen. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought it was pretty good... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Dark comedies are a tricky thing. I'm used to seeing films where you're supposed to laugh as people get murdered or a comedic moment will suddenly lead into something really twisted. I'm never quite sure how to introduce people that aren't used to that brand of humor to the genre, and if you suffer from the same predicament, maybe "Siblings" is the answer. It's a dark comedy that doesn't go too far into the twisted type of humor that you may be used to so it's a decent introduction into the genre. I wouldn't say the movie is great, but it's not terrible either (what a glowing recommendation!) Considering it's a story about four children that want to murder their parents it's never very violent or gruesome. The film offers some interesting characters and it's too bad that it never really feels like they all get fleshed out as much as they should because I think that most people will be left wanting more. The film has its share of laughs, not many but if you're looking for something funny and twisted at the same time, it's worth taking a look into It if you're paying a dollar to rent it, or it happens to be playing on TV kind of thing. (Dvd, November 6, 2012) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoyed the plot of this movie, it is straight forward although keeps the movie interesting. Seemed more realistic then most movies about kids killing their parents. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member not enough SR in this film.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Watchable, but ultimately forgettable dramedy. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
