Milo Dean (Hader), a gay, failed L.A. actor, and Maggie (Wiig), a married, discontented New York dental hygienist, are twins who haven't talked in the decade since their father died. Watch American Sniper Online

What brings them together is suicide. She's thinking about swallowing pills. He takes more drastic action. When Milo slits his wrists, Maggie flies cross-country to his bedside. Watch The Boy Next Door Online

Milo calls himself "another tragic gay cliché." She looks askance as he reads Marley and Me. "What, does the dog die?" he reacts, mock-appalled. Watch Paddington Online

Brother-and-sister stuff. Uplifting banter. Underneath, they're hurting. The result is that Maggie invites Milo to return to their upstate New York hometown and move in with her and her loyal puppy-dog husband, Lance (Luke Wilson, nicely blending swagger and nuance). Watch The Wedding Ringer Online

Lance brags about how he and Maggie are eager to have a baby. "I can't wait to be the creepy gay uncle," deadpans Milo. The kidding is forced, but, hey, everyone is trying. Watch Taken 3 Online

So far, so formulaic. And then the script gets tricky. Maggie sluts around with her Aussie scuba instructor (Boyd Holbrook), the most recent in a line of hookups, and secretly takes birth-control pills. Watch The Imitation Game Online

Milo stalks Rich (Ty Burrell), the English teacher who seduced him in high school. The scandalous affair with Rich, who now has a girlfriend and a son, helped widen the chasm between the twins. Watch Strange Magic Online

Burrell, who just picked up his second deserved Emmy for Modern Family, does wonders with a deeply compromised character willing to compromise again when he thinks a lying Milo can help him sell a script to Hollywood. Watch Selma Online

There's enough plot here to float a flotilla of daytime dramas, especially when the twins' New Age mom (Joanna Gleason, spewing perky contempt) flies in from Sedona to show her children "the light." Watch Mortdecai Online

What raises the movie above the herd and rocks our settled ideas of pop entertainment is the way Hader and Wiig resist the script's pull to tidy things up. Of course, they're a hoot inhaling nitrous oxide in Maggie's dental office. Watch Into the Woods Online

Watch The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Online

But clues arrive in the form of their self-involved New Age mother (Joanna Gleason, ideally cast in an unfortunately underexplored role) and an older man (Ty Burrell) from Milo’s past with whom he appears to have a romantic connection. Watch Unbroken Online
