Sleeping revives romantic comedy by populating it with fully fleshed-out characters. The stars are both sympathetic and charming, especially Sudeikis-who knew he had it in him after years of post-SNL comedies?

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.
October 15, 2015
Screenwriter-director Leslye Headland has an ear for dialogue and offbeat characters, but the film never feels fresh or engaging.

It's obvious where "Sleeping with Other People" is going; the fun is in getting there.

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.
September 25, 2015
Headland refuses to redeem her characters, which is what makes "Sleeping With Other People" ultimately more interesting than other rom-coms.
September 23, 2015
"Sleeping With Other People" is one of the best and funniest recent attempts to update the rom-com - but the container feels too antiquated for the world it captures, which is so furiously alive.

The desperation to overdo everything ruins what might otherwise have been a charming little rom-com, with likable stars, great co-stars, and some sharp bits of dialogue.
September 17, 2015
If there's a way to charm us with the approach, Headland (writer of 2014's "About Last Night" update) never really finds it, squandering the appeal of leads Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie.

The movie deftly navigates the tricky geography and timing of romance and heartbreak.

Just might be the most romantic and touching film about sex addiction ever.
September 14, 2015
The premise prompts much talk about sex, most of which is written in screenwriter-ese, awaiting punctuation by a laugh track.
