Film Review: ‘The Skeleton Twins’

A friend recently shared with me, intended as a gentle admonishment, I’m sure, the following bit of wisdom: “You only make a mistake once.  After that, the same mistake becomes a choice.” Such is the nature of the dilemma Maggie (Kristen Wiig) and her twin brother Milo (Bill Hader) face in Craig Johnson’s fine new [...]
