Not everyone will like it as much as I did, but some might. (by ga_x)
Let's start by saying, you can't take the title as an accurate representation of this movie. It suits it very well though, just not in a literal sense. Some people didn't like it because they expected an original comedy about open relationships and got a romantic comedy about two emotionally messed up individuals. And if you aren't expecting it to be something else, this movie absolutely nails it.I know not everyone wants to see a movie about those kind of characters, but I'm really sick of rom-coms about people who have a healthy relationship with sex unless they're a <more>
bad guy or someone whose not mean to find love. I thought it was really refreshing to see characters with these issues and the movie was well done. Sure it's a romantic comedy with all the right clichés and cheeky music, and sure the characters aren't relatable to everyone, but for me, it was just perfect.
A film filled with Depth, Excitement and "Free Love" (by thilakshan-112-360775)
I don't usually write reviews unless I feel compelled... and I almost missed out on this film because of so many bad reviews criticizing the screenplay, claiming that it just 'meanders' about. Absolutely not! The screenplay is simply perfection... it is capturing how the characters are 'meandering' in their own lives while being drawn to something of real VALUE, something that makes life WORTH LIVING, and this the film captures with majestic beauty.Sure, this film might not be everyone's cup of tea, especially for those who have emotional issues create a distaste for <more>
anything that isn't sexual monogamy... but this film is REAL in the way it captures the sexual issues of the modern age.The dialogues are incredibly witty, spirited, and never out-of-place... the story is original - and originality is a rare thing to come by these days. This is not a regular-fare movie, not mediocre in any sense, not a usual rom-com... the characters are treated with great respect, and space is given for them to discover themselves on their own terms. Very few films do that.If you are looking for the usual kind of plot-line, the usual kind of screenplay, then you won't understand this film. But if you open up, suspend all personal judgements, and just feel what the characters are going through, the way the story develops will be truly moving and breathtaking to behold.
By-The-Numbers, Yet Completely Original (by tomatdotcom)
This movie first snatched my attention as an obscure trailer, something that popped up while I was habitually browsing the web. From that moment I absolutely fell in love with it, it's light humour and perfect chemistry between all of the cast. It still remains to this day one of my favourite trailers of all time, and one I would routinely check in on every now and then leading up to the movie's release, so that I could remind myself why I was excited to see the actual film, and not a two minute summary. Yet I obviously had reservations. Too many of us have been betrayed by trailers, <more>
advertising movies that don't exist or are completely different to the one actually presented and payed for . "Don't get your hopes up", I would say to myself. "There's every chance this movie will be one of the worst of the year." Then I heard reports of standing ovations at Sundance and as the generally favourable reviews began to trickle in my hopes defiantly rose. And I'm so immensely happy they did, because this movie, and it's subsequent trailer, absolutely nailed it. The humour was refreshingly real and hilarious, as were the relationships, with the two leads Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie absolutely deserving a mention for being particularly amazing together. A shout out to Jason Mantzoukas and Andrea Savage also - thanks to them, if you turn this movie off the moment you see the credits you're missing one of its funniest and most heartwarming parts. However, as my title probably suggested, this movie is still a pretty by-the-numbers romcom, and is semi-predictable plot-wise wow, I used a lot of dashes in that sentence, please forgive me . That cliché that just ran through your head when I mentioned the word romcom - yeah, it is probably in this movie. Except for kissing in the rain, surprisingly. Actually, now that I think about it, the only scene that comes to mind with rain even in it is the one where Sudeikis is pushed in front of and hit by a car. Okay let me revise that; only *most* of the normal romcom clichés are in this movie. But there's a reason that movie genres can become so formulaic - sometimes the formula truly does work. With the fantastic writing and directing, the brilliant acting and helpful injection of fresh ideas into a generally stale formula, this movie manages to be truly entertaining from start to finish. I found myself intoxicated by the relationship of two wholly fictional people, engrossed in their journey both towards and away from one another. I thought the ending could have been a little more poignant and in theme with the rest of the movie, but it was still a supremely satisfying conclusion to a story I'm amazed managed to exceed my hopes and expectations. Truly, a fantastic film.
Sleeping with Other People is a fine rom-com starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis (by tavm)
Just watched this indie rom-com with my movie theatre-working friend starring Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis. The film begins in college in 2002 when Jason's character was helping Alison go through something that I don't feel like revealing here. Fast forward 12 years later and they meet again though since they both have other entanglements on hand, they're just friends for now. I'll just say this was both funny and touching for both me and my friend. Yes, this is a very adult comedy with many sexual references throughout though there's also a sweetness that makes this <more>
more than a romp. Both Ms. Brie and Sudeikis have enough chemistry that when they're together on screen, it's time well spent for both of them. So on that note, both me and my friend highly recommend Sleeping with Other People.
'Sleeping with other People' is a breath of fresh air. Now keep in mind that it is still a romantic comedy at its base, but layered on top of that base is a warm story about friendship, and what it truly means to love someone when you're scared to, and when you're the only obstacle in the way of your happiness.Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie have a fantastic chemistry, but more than their relationship with each other, their relationship with themselves is what helps to make the movie so lovable. Each character is holding onto a dream that won't be fulfilled and they <more>
aren't afraid to know it. To say it out loud. To look for a solution. The movie doesn't spend time trying to solve character traits or conveniently having the characters not know that they would be perfect together. The characters know and wait until they are 100% ready to accept it or move on. There is no crisis of character here. Happiness is happiness in any form that their friendship wants to take and they know it. The story is written to show that love manifests in many ways. And you don't sit there hoping they get together. You're content with the two whether they're romantic or not. Great film. 9/10
Filled with surprisingly touching moments, of intimacy and insight! (by Hellmant)
'SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five Romantic comedy flick, about two sex addicts; who try to maintain a good platonic relationship, while fighting off strong feelings for each other of course . The film stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie, as the leads, and it costars Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas, Andrea Savage and Natasha Lyonne. It was written and directed by Leslye Headland who also performed both duties on the 2012 sex comedy flick 'BACHELORETTE' , and it was made on a budget of just $1 million! I found it to be a somewhat <more>
routine, and predictable, romcom; but it's also filled with surprisingly touching moments, of intimacy and insight.Jake Sudeikis and Lainey Brie met in college, as virgins, and lost their virginity to each other. Several years later they're both sex addicts, and run into each other at rehab. Jake now has a problem, committing to any serious relationships while sleeping with every woman he finds attractive , and Lainey can't stay faithful to any guy she commits to. The two decide to form a friendship, and help each other out; with both sexual and romantic issues the other one has . They also, of course, become strongly attracted to each other in the process. The movie runs a pretty familiar path, at first, but then it becomes really interesting, involving and unpredictable; I thought it was going to end long before it actually did. All of the performances are good, and very funny; especially Sudeikis Mantzoukas is a scene-stealer as well . I'm not a big fan of Brie and I don't especially find her attractive either , but I still cared about her character. I wasn't a fan of 'BACHELORETTE', but I think Headland did an excellent job helming this film. It's very raunchy like 'BACHELORETTE' and extremely witty and hilarious at times , but it's also emotional and very touching. By the end of the film, it had definitely won me over!Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://youtu.be/2GU4GdpLvIk
A film that really speaks its target audience's language about what really matters (by StevePulaski)
"Pretend this empty bottle of green tea is your vagina." - Jake, Jason Sudeikis "Looks just like it." - Lainey, Alison Brie nearly interrupting her "Great, let's move on." - Jake, Jason Sudeikis"Early on-set chemistry between actors in movies is a seriously beautiful thing, especially when it's a chemistry you can see develop from the very first frame in the film. Sleeping with Other People features two delightful performers that I would've never thought have been so charismatic and fun together. The performers in question are Alison Brie and <more>
Jason Sudeikis, both proved assets to nearly every film they are in, Brie for her constant, easy-going charisma and her strengths at situational and conversational humor, and Sudeikis for affable and impressively mature "manchild" roles, if that makes sense.The two make Sleeping with Other People, the sophomore effort from Leslye Headland, who directed Bachelorette in 2012, a delightful romantic comedy, one that speaks to the current generation by use of wit, deadpan sarcasm, technological incorporation, and quick-witted banter. Rather than trying too hard to try and illustrate a new kind of relationship between people like Friends with Benefits, or frustrate with its narrative conventions and compliance with incredulous circumstances like Safe Haven, Sleeping with Other People is so simple and genuine that you may overlook how large its impact is.The film opens in 2002, where a young collegian named Lainey Alison Brie creates a scene outside of Jake's Jason Sudeikis dorm. When she is about to be kicked out by security, Jake vouches that she is indeed his guest, and the two spend most of the night in his dorm as she states that her plan was to lose her virginity to her teaching assistant Matt Adam Scott . Jake, who is also a virgin, slams Matt as one of the most boring people on the faces of the Earth, and both him and Lainey end up hitting it off so well that they wind up having sex.In the present day, we see Lainey break up with her long-term boyfriend after telling him she has been cheating on him. Per her therapist's request, Lainey decides to visit a "love addicts" meeting where she runs into Jake, who is there for his inability to commit. The two wind up reconnecting just in time for Lainey to realize that Matt, who she was cheating with, is getting engaged; both Lainey and Jake decide to serve as one another's personal therapist as they carry out a strictly platonic relationship revolving around discussing sex and learning the process and perks of commitment.As stated, the bulk of this film relies on the charming and nonchalant chemistry of both Sudeikis and Brie, which is something that consistently works in the film's favor. Both are comedians well-versed and trained in the field of modern comedies, so it's no surprise that when the two get together, Headland's script has them zealously spouting off quick-witted lines filled with subtle humor and sarcastic undertones. Furthermore, this is the kind of language that the target audience speaks in, especially when the subject revolves around love and romantic commitment.We're approaching a day and age where more and more young people are rejecting the idea of committing to another person or even formally dating. Positives and negatives of that aside, films like Sleeping with Other People are what we need to document such a shift in mindset. This is a film that doesn't condescend the already disenfranchised demographic when it comes to assertions of them "getting serious" with one another, or the lack of ability to do so, nor does it feel like this was a film made by outsiders looking in, thinking they know how the newer generations operate without really knowing how they operate. Headland does a wonderful job at conveying a sense of maturity and restraint in her script, even when situations call for Jake showing Lainey how to masturbate using an empty bottle of green tea.Quoted above is a line that perfectly summarizes the humor in this film, not in terms of content, but in terms of zealous energy and conversational wit. Sudeikis and Brie are so used to commanding the screen in their films, regardless of whether or not they have a starring or supporting role, that it's almost as if they cannot help but exhaust all their comedic abilities in this particular film. The result, coupled with the recurring themes of this generation's approach to love and relationships, is refreshing and uncommonly fun, especially given how laidback this film constantly feels.Starring: Alison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, and Adam Scott. Directed by: Leslye Headland.
Smart Rom Com, two things that don't often go together (by ekeby)
I'm a little surprised at all the negative reviews here. It's hard to imagine what the reviewers found missing. Romance? Comedy? Or both? Because I found plenty of each. I will say that I can see how you need to be able to relate to the lifestyles depicted to appreciate the film. Because if you can't, this might as well be about life on Mars.This is a smart movie. And the concept is pretty original, considering the difficulty of deviating from the restrictions of the genre. The leads are immensely likable and each able to toss off complex comedic riffs with ease. And I very much <more>
enjoyed seeing Adam Scott play the heavy. Not easy to portray a dull-as-donuts bad guy, but he pulled it off.Despite the "truthiness" of the dialog, the movie does share one thing with all romantic comedies: it's a wet dream for the love hungry. Especially for those folks who juggle and struggle with the reality of modern relationships. The lead characters wear a veneer of cynical sophistication that many of us use as protective shields. But, as is expected from a rom-com, the veneer cracks. And we're glad when it does.I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, but be warned: it is a movie for grown ups.
Obviously this is not the most original story of all time BUT the script is well done and very funny. Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis are demonstrating they are very good actors with great capacity to enter into their characters back stories and atmosphere.Boy and girl meet, fall in love and... well you probably already know the end result but there is a cast of great supporting characters supporting the two leads. Everyone will appreciate and have a good time watching this movie and getting enthralled by the exchanges between the two leads. Definitely recommended.
