Rapid Review: Sleeping With Other People

Sleeping With Other People Film Poster

After losing their virginities to each other in College, Lacey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) meet each other again at an addicts meeting. Jake is a sex addict while Lacey is a love addict. They decide to stay friends and not let sex get in the way. But this becomes easier said than done.

Sleeping With Other People is rude and funny. There are several hilarious moments such as  Lacey’s uncomfortable confession to her boyfriend in a public resturant, Jake teaching Lacey how to…er…love herself, and Jake and Lacey’s drug fuelled dancing at a kid’s party. It’s fun seeing Brie as something completely different from her role as uptight Annie in the brilliant Community and she works well with Sudeikis. Adam Scott is also fun as the massive douche that Lacey is obbessed with.

Towards the end the film becomes less subversive and heads more towards traditional rom-com territory. But it’s still a funny and worthwhile movie to see.

Rating 3.5/5 – amusing and surprisingly romantic movie with the wonderfully likeable Alison Brie

  1. Be interesting to see how Brie’s film career takes off.

  2. I’ve been meaning to watch this after I heard some good early buzz about it from some of the online film sites I follow. Basically I’m down for anything with Alison Brie, though rom coms do keep me at distance for sure.
