Storyline

Marjorie Turner is suffocating. Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her 8 year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), whom he is also competing for the affections of. One day, she snaps while food shopping, and beds a mysterious man, who die during the moment of passion. When she forgets her wallet, a vertical-blinds salesman finds it, and things get complicated from there... Written by Allison L. Venezio <YankeeSNL01@aol.com>

Sibling Rivalry is one of those typical late 80´s early 90´s movie that came along. Some people saw it in the theater and some people rented it but never came a cult hit or a box-office smash and has now been forgotten.

This does not mean that this movie is bad or movies of this sort are bad. On the contorary these films are actually quite entertaining and help you to get into good mood and this film falls into that category.

It is short, funny, exciting and has some great acting. Jamie Gertz and Kirstie Alley are great as the sisters and the supporting actors and actresses to a good job.

One of the things that bothers me is that they don´t show the cover that was used on the tape where I live where you see Kirstie Alley covering up her face with a blanket or a sheet. It is one of the all time greatest movie posters I have seen.
