Sundance 2015: You should abstain from ‘Sleeping with Other People’

Sleeping with Other People

Written & Directed by Leslye Headland

USA, 2015

With each new inferior romantic-comedy, you come to appreciate the delicate brilliance of When Harry Met Sally just a little bit more.  Sleeping with Other People is a particularly egregious offender because it borrows so heavily from the classic.  Though it tries very hard (too hard) to please, it can’t overcome its faulty premise, miscast leads, and ill-conceived gags.  This is a rom-com with very few laughs and even fewer romantic sparks.

From the first frames, it’s evident that Sleeping with Other People is saddled with a deeply flawed premise.  Lainey (Alison Brie) is an uber-fox who remained sexless because she “wanted to be chosen” by a complete zero named Matthew Sobvechik (Adam Scott).  Lainey’s virginal counterpart is Jake (Jason Sudeikis); an uncouth douchebag who “wanted his first time to be special.”  Okay, that’s utter nonsense, »
