Deterred by serial cheating and sex addiction in their past, the pair decide to keep their relationship strictly platonic – but can they really avoid temptation?
Sleeping with Other People opens on September 11 in the Us. A UK release is yet to be set. »
Director Leslye Headland’s comedy is about two ex-lovers and now platonic friends who remain “just friends” because of their exhaustive sex addictions, fearing that sex might ruin the relationship they have. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the titular couple who in the film’s first trailer can be seen getting stoned at a children’s birthday party and sleeping around in destructive fashion. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.

The first trailer has arrived online for writer/director Leslye Headland’s upcoming romantic comedy Sleeping With Other People, which stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
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. »

It’s about time that Community‘s Alison Brie got her big break. I was appalled to see how under-utilized (and despicably objectified) she was in this spring’s Get Hard, but this fall’s Sleeping with Other People should finally introduce cinephiles to her real comic gifts. Pairing the actress with Jason Sudeikis seems like a thoroughly winning prospect, and based on the first trailer for the irreverent pic, romantic-comedy fans might be about to get a much-needed kick in the teeth.
Brie stars as Lainey, a long-time sex addict who reconnects with an old, also sex-addicted friend (Jason Sudeikis) to whom she lost her virginity in college. Determined to break their respective cycles, the two vow to be platonic friends and never sleep together, which only gets trickier when the cynical pair develop unexpected affection for one another.

Brie plays a serial cheater, while Sudeikis is a womanizer in the romantic comedy. The characters first have a fling in college, then rekindle their relationship when they run into each other more than a decade later at a 12-step program for sex addicts.
“The guy I lost my virginity to was at my sex addicts meeting,” Brie admits to a friend.
Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette”) directs from her own script. IFC bought North American rights to the movie following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Sidney Kimmel and Jessica Elbaum are producing, while Jim Tauber, Carla Hacken and Matt Berenson are exec producing.

Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis star as relationship phobics in the indie comedy Sleeping with Other People. The pair play Lainey and Jake, serial cheaters who reconnect twelve years after they last hooked up. Acknowledging their failure at monogamy, the two make a pact to be just friends, but their increasing attraction to one another throws a wrench into their plans to keep it out of the bedroom.
The comedy was a hit when it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival with comparisons to a modern-day When Harry Met Sally… popping up in the film’s buzz. A romcom for the Tinder age, the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People shows us that sharp-witted dialogue and some heartfelt humour are in store for the cast which also includes Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Amanda Peet.
The comedy pedigree doesn’t stop with the cast. Will Ferrell is a producer »

Sleeping With Other People Trailer Has Been Released. Leslye Headland‘s Sleeping With Other People (2015) movie trailer stars Natasha Lyonne, Alison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, and Jason Mantzoukas. Sleeping With Other People‘s plot synopsis: “A good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in.”
I’m pretty shocked that I still fall for these films. I watch most romantic comedies, even those not worthy of watching when you’re bored on an airplane. I suppose its the basic structure of the genre, the familiar plot points, character traits, the somewhat heightened version of reality. Everything seems easier in these films. New York looks cleaner and more romantic than it sometimes does when you’re living here. Everyone looks handsome or beautiful, and life is light. Things are bearable.
So, then, I’m quite sold on this, »

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie are the stars of Sleeping With Other People, an unconventional romantic comedy from Bachelorette director Leslye Headland. The two play old flames who run into each other after 12 years . . . at a Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous meeting. Acknowledging they both have some pretty series relationship issues, they pledge to stay friends. Obviously, it wouldn't be a romantic comedy if that was the end of the story. Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, and Amanda Peet all costar in the film, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. It's opening in limited release on Aug. 21! »
"For the first time, I'm a little bit optimistic you might not become that creepy guy." IFC Films has debuted the first trailer for Sleeping with Other People, a Sundance comedy that was one of our favorites of this festival earlier this year. Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as two compulsive cheaters who end up in a relationship, but will it work out from them? This actually looks really good, don't skip it. Sleeping with Other People is the follow-up from Bachelorette filmmaker Leslye Headland, and it seems to be a very big improvement. Adam Scott, Amanda Peet & Natasha Lyonne also star. Ethan wrote in his review from Sundance that it's "one of the most entertaining and honest love stories of the past 10 years." Check it out. Here's the first trailer for Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People, direct from IFC's YouTube: Synopsis: Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? »

The first Sleeping with Other People trailer has gone online, and you can already tell it’s hiding the good stuff. The premise revolves around two old friends Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) who have become sex addicts, and decide to rely on each other by keeping their relationship platonic. Their plan becomes more difficult as their affection for each other grows. That’s the sweetness the trailer presents with only a couple hints at the raunchy, abrasive humor director Leslye Headland delivered with her first film, Bachelorette. At Sundance, she described the movie as “When Harry Met Sally with assholes,” and that’s the film I want to see, especially after checking out Adam’s positive review. I don’t mind that that the trailer is burying the dirty jokes; they’ll be even more surprising when I end up checking out the film later this year. »

It's the age-old question: Can men and women just be friends? In "Sleeping With Other People," the question gets a twist: Can a man and a woman, both addicted to sex, just be friends?
The trailer for the romantic comedy, which debuted at Sundance, shows that the answer is: It's very, very difficult. "Sleeping With Other People" seems to be an updated version of "When Harry Met Sally." As Lainey (Alison Brie) observes of her relationship with Jake (Jason Sudeikis), "We're not a couple, but we act like one."
Lainey and Jake are old friends who hooked up years ago, and run into each other at a sex addicts meeting. They decide to keep things platonic, even though sparks are flying. Judging by the trailer, the movie looks to be a sweet and funny good time, and Brie and Sudeikis have great chemistry. And the rest of the cast is awesome: Adam Scott, »

After only viewing the third season premier of "Orange is the New Black", I had smug notions of anticipating how this season would play out. Most of these notions were about how the show would bring the focus back to Piper (Taylor Schilling) after sprawling out to explore the lives of the other inmates last season. I jumped to this conclusion based on one of the final scenes of that first episode - Piper nearly admits to Alex (Laura Prepon) the real reason they've been reunited but holds back. How could a secret like that not fester over several episodes only to explode around the halfway point of the season while the remaining episodes deal with the falloutc Part of the appeal "Orange is the New Black" has had for me since the beginning was in its ability to showcase a group of people that aren't typically a part of »

We're continuing this weekly trip through "Orange Is the New Black" season 3, two episodes at a time. Thoughts on episodes 3 & 4 coming up just as soon as I can smell Trey Anastasio's Bo... "But guess what? We all think we're good guys." -Alex "Orange" is made with the assumption that most of its audience is going to race through the season in a short period of time, and me reviewing two episodes a week is more of a concession to the realities of my job (and my desire to write more about a show I love) than it's meant to be a reflection of how the show is designed or consumed. But I still appreciate it when I wind up with a pair of episodes that tie together as nicely as "Empathy Is a Boner Killer" and "Finger in the Dyke" do. It's not just that our two flashback subjects, »

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when plots are bad. I didn’t notice how much I loved you, until you took my Natasha Lyonne away. Seriously what is up with the backstories this year? It’s more of a curse than a blessing. Last episode we learned what a coward Bennett was in Iraq, and it turns out he’s an even bigger coward than we imagined. Not only did he leave Daya’s old crib on the side of the road, he’s taken off for good and left his “fiance” and child in the lurch. I bet Annalise Keating is real happy about that.Now we got another Nicki backstory, one of the few characters to get a second helping, and she was carted off to maximum-security prison when her plot to smuggle heroin out of the prison with Luschek went south. »

Going to the "max" isn't always a good thing, despite what your extreme sports-lovin' friend may say. Just ask Orange Is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne. Lyonne, who has played inmate Nicky Nichols on the Netflix dramedy, has left the cast as a series regular...if opening credits are to believed. The But I'm a Cheerleader star appeared in the opening credits for episodes one-three of the new season, but after her character—Spoiler Alert—was sent to the maximum security facility after hiding drugs in the electrical office in episode three, her name was removed in subsequent episodes. Sending Nicky to max devastated fans and characters including Red (Kate Mulgrew) and Morello (Yael »
"Orange is the New Black" begins its third season outside of the prison. The environment of Litchfield Penitentiary can feel heightened, like the characters have to be outrageous to come up to the level of their surroundings. Taking an inmate out from time to time and putting them in the real world goes to show that, no, in fact these characters are naturally outrageous and Litchfield is the only location that contain it. The things Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) says, and believes, while she and the guards shop for Mother's Day supplies remind us this show isn't interested in being politically correct. It isn't even interested in being in good taste. The main goal of the show and series creator Jenji Kohan has been to showcase a group of people who have been marginalized or completely omitted from depiction in popular culture - and damn if the end result isn't incredibly entertaining. »
