Overview

Lainey (Alison Brie) and Jake (Jason Sudeikis) lost their virginities to each other in college, and they meet again, years later, when they attend the same meeting for sex addiction. Both of their love lives are disasters, and after rekindling their friendship, they vow to keep their relationship platonic so they can help each other with their problems: Jake is a womanizer who can't commit, while Lainey hasn't gotten over a married doctor (Adam Scott) she's been having an affair with. In time, Jake falls for a high-powered businesswoman (Amanda Peet) who buys his start-up company, while Lainey starts dating a financier (Marc Blucas). Yet through it all, they feel closer to each other than to any of their actual partners. Jason Mantzoukas and Andrea Savage co-star as a married couple who are friends with Jake, and who pressure him to settle down to avoid being the weird single guy at their parties (the end credits feature a hilarious sequence in which the two of them banter about the state of their marriage). SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE was written and directed by Leslye Headland.

Reviews:
"[I]t somehow makes the lusty undercurrents of its male/female friendship unironically romantic and, at times, unapologetically sexy." -- Grade: A- - 09/10/2015 A.V. Club


"Sudeikis and Brie, both generally better known for supporting roles and broad comedies, step into their lead spots impressively, giving nuanced, vulnerable performances. The script is also generally much sharper and funnier than your average rom-com bear." -- Grade: B+ - 09/08/2015 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE hits the sweet spot between hot and hilarious because its lovers spit at romcom clichés." - 09/09/2015 Rolling Stone


3 stars out of 4 -- "Headland is in full control of her moral compass. There's not a phrase of judgment or slut-shaming to be found in this film about serial cheaters, nor is any discussion muted about sexual content." - 09/11/2015 RogerEbert.com


"Dryly funny and effortlessly natural as ever, Jason Sudeikis gives one of the best performances of his career as Jake..." - 09/17/2015 Chicago Sun-Times
