Sleeping With Other People – The Review

1 October 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Sleeping With Other People is a forgettable, by-the-numbers romantic comedy that relies on tiresome clichés and unfunny sex jokes. The newest from writer/director Leslye Headland opens at Columbia University in 2002 where students Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) lose their virginity to each other one night. Jump ahead 13 years and horndog Jake is reintroduced having an angry confrontation with his current girlfriend over his serial inability to stay committed. Meanwhile, Lainey is having an affair with Matt Sovochek (Adam Scott), now a gynecologist married to pregnant Emma (Katherine Waterston). After over a decade of not having contact with one another, Jake and Lainey reconnect at a sex addiction support group meetings. They suddenly become platonic best friends, venting their  frustrations over their sexual and romantic lives while falling for each other in the process.

I suppose the audience is expected to laugh at the assumed outrageousness of all the explicit dialog about sex, »
