Look, it had nothing to do with you.
That is bullshit. You're my brother. And we're supposed to be there for each other. And if you don't get that by now, then, I don't know, I guess I'll talk to you in another ten years.

An amazing mix of comedy and drama from two Saturnday Night Live alums
Laughing at the pain of two siblings who unknowingly attempt to kill themselves at the same time, reunite due to this tragedy after ten years of non-communication.
With Kristen Wig in the movie, I was expecting to laugh, but I think the best laughs came from Bill Hader. His role as Milo, A gay actor who's life is know where near what he expected in high school, sets us on a whirlwind of emotions as he tries to cope with being back home after being away for so long.
Luke Wilson's supporting role as a the likable husband to Kristen Wig's character also gave me a big chuckle as well.
Rounding out the cast is Ty Burrell, best known for his role on Modern Family. It was cool to see him do something out of Type.
It was weird laughing at people with such messed up lives but some say this is the secret to great comedy, that it comes from a dark place. The filmmakers were able to show light coming from this darkness and it was well played in a way that made the twin's issues relateable to us.
It was a great drama with a lot of comedy in it, A must see.
