Sleeping with Other People

Sort-of-platonic rom-com from the writer and director of Bachelorette, following a womaniser (Jason Sudeikis, Horrible Bosses) and a serial cheater (Alison Brie, Community) who form a mutual friendship that threatens to become something more. Co-stars Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black).

From the implication of its title onwards, Sleeping With Other People is very eager to let us know what a modern film it is. As befitting a comedy for grown-ups in 2015, it contains endless one-liners dissecting the sex act in vivid detail, counting on audiences to still find words like “balls” inherently side-splitting. What distinguishes it from the crop of post-Apatow raunch-fests is the amount of jokes that manage to be genuinely perceptive about relationships in 2015.

Headland demonstrated little interest in playing it safe with her previous film... But here she reins in that impulse almost too much...

Headland refuses to milk easy laughs by winking at genre clichés, but her decision to play things straight helps clarify a truth at the heart of movies like this.

Why Lainey would be enamored by such a dud remains a mystery...

Doesn't have the jokes or the emotionally textured characters that can fill in that conceit.

Though the leads lend charm and comic timing to the unpersuasive material, it would take a ground-up rewrite to make the fate of their characters matter.

A brittle, bawdy, frequently funny romcom that might be too smart for its own good.

A smart, flawed movie about smart, flawed people.
