Sleeping With Other People, the new movie written and directed by Bachelorette's Leslye Hedland, made its debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and our review called it a "f**king brilliant romantic comedy." That's high praise, but with actors as talented as Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis headlining and a supporting cast that includes actors I love like Jason Mantzoukas, Adam Scott, and Natasha Lyonne, I'm hoping I feel the same way when I get to check it out for myself.
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. Fresh, funny, and full of witty insights about modern love, this hilariously heartfelt film “is the rare rom-com that reminds us why we love them so much in the first place” (Time Out New York). Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Mantzoukas co-star.
The film arrives in theaters on September 11th.
