Sleeping with Other People Reviews

An unfortunately hideous affair. Toplined by two skilled comedic actors who both deserve more than the trite script awards them, the crudity builds throughout, resulting in a film that's deeply unpleasant.

This seems smug and overindulged, with several scenes feeling like they've been improvised way past a point when that's a good thing.

Romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, and there are some pretty good ones out there. Sleeping With Other People, while it has some entertaining elements, is not one of them.

A retrograde romantic comedy that disguises itself as a transgressive movie. [Full review in Spanish]
November 22, 2016
A film that stays in a level that isn't neither annoying nor memorable, almost like its own protagonists, Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. [Full review in Spanish]

Somewhere along the line, somebody sanded down Headland's rough edges.
January 4, 2016
Perhaps Headland is afraid of her films being too unlikable for audiences, or this an attempt to legitimise herself within the mainstream. Because, ultimately, why sacrifice all this smart, perceptive modernity for a finale hewn of Hollywood cliché?

Of course we all know how it's going to end and the film's crushing predictability could be ignored if it raised more laughs -- but this is all over the place.
January 1, 2016
It's all so self-consciously metropolitan, so determinedly up-to-the-minute, that even at a fairly concise hour and 41 minutes it seems too long.

The guy sat directly in front of me stood up, loudly declared to everyone that "This is the worst film I have ever seen in my entire life" and just walked out.

I wanted to really like this movie, but the laughs largely weren't there and the ultimate spiral of the movie attempted to rely on "shocking" dialogue and situations rather than actually pushing the envelope.

The strong chemistry between Brie and Sudeikis makes this feel more cohesive than it actually is, but without a consistent tone underlying the jokes, it's hard to know how to react.

Another misfire from Bachelorette filmmaker Leslye Headland...
October 15, 2015
I love pretty much everything in Sleeping With Other People: Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, Alison Brie, Jason Mantzoukas, Amanda Peet, Andrea Savage, New York City, all of it. And yet this is a contrived, witless, utterly infuriating movie.
October 15, 2015
Screenwriter-director Leslye Headland has an ear for dialogue and offbeat characters, but the film never feels fresh or engaging.
October 5, 2015
It's hard to shake the notion that Leslye Headland wants soooo badly to make the 21st-century version of When Harry Met Sally..., but there's not nearly the same unique chemistry and relationship insight to match the raunchy jokes.

Diablo Cody on steroids

The more honest depictions of modern love are welcome, but you can tell where this is heading early and often.
September 25, 2015
As the film strains to be hip and clever, the fate of the characters becomes inconsequential along the way.
September 25, 2015
Sudeikis' smooth charisma and Brie's wide-eyed charm almost carry the film, but while Headland bravely chooses to skip certain expected rom-com beats, she also fails to earn certain rom-com payoffs.
