Critic Reviews for Sibling Rivalry

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

The movie puts its characters into one of the most hilarious predicaments we've seen in a while. But the punch line doesn't deliver.

August 18, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Here is a comedy so lifeless and mechanical that the main diversion is in watching the way the pieces go together.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Pleasant farce comedy with likable characters (and no sibling rivalry).

December 4, 2016 | Full Review…

fast food in movie form for the 90s

June 14, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

Flat, uninspired and even tasteless.

September 9, 2004 | Rating: 2/5

Aimless ensemble farce from a cast (and director) who should know better.

November 4, 2002 | Rating: 2/5

Haven't seen this in a long time, but it had a few laughs, nothing memorable though.
