Sleeping With Other People
Sleeping With Other People
Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? After a one-night stand in college, New Yorkers Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet by chance twelve years later and discover they each have the same problem: because of their monogamy-challenged ways, neither can maintain a relationship. Determined to stay friends despite their mutual attraction, they make a pact to keep it platonic, a deal that proves easier said than done.
I normally love these low key rom-coms but for some reason this one just didn't connect for me, usually in these films you have one or even two likeable lead characters but in this case both are mostly unlikeable. It does though have the benefit of Alison Brie spending much of the time in her underwear.
