Sleeping with Other People

Critics Consensus

Sleeping with Other People has likable leads and flashes of inspiration, but seems unwilling or unable to surround them with the truly subversive rom-com they deserve.

But can love still bloom while you're sleeping with other people? Writer/director Leslye Headland's (Bachelorette) sexy romantic comedy co-stars Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, and Natasha Lyonne. (C) IFC

  • Sleeping With Other People is an updated -- and raunchier -- take on the When Harry Met Sally rom-com premise: can a man and a woman ever be best friends, or will there always be just a troublesome frisson of attraction?

  • Inevitably, it pretends to be edgier than it actually is, and doesn't create a sustained character development in the way Nora Ephron managed, but it's watchable for all that.

  • [Sudeikis is] fast and funny and Headland's willingness to tackle the unromantic aspects of the rom-com lends a sophistication you don't find in more anodyne examples.

  • Smart, funny, sexy and very frank.

  • Writer-director Leslye Headland has made a film that is saucy and sweet, for the boys and for the girls -- an R-rated Seinfeld, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Oct 16, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Screenwriter-director Leslye Headland has an ear for dialogue and offbeat characters, but the film never feels fresh or engaging.

    Breezy romcom with loads of snappy dialogue exchanges as well as two engaging leads. "I don't want to dance," they both say dramatically, over and over again but then there'd be no film. The problem is that everything can be seen coming from a mile away.

    A funny and sexy rom-com with a sweet message and some nice performances from Sudeikis and the now-I-see-why-people-think-she's-hot Alison Brie.

    I feel like I wasted my time on this one. Extremely b grade, and not in a good way.

    Jason Sudekis and Alison Brie are a nice pairing for this rom-com but it's not enough to lift it past it's extremely clichéd narrative.
