Anna Kendrick is actually drunk in the drinking game scene that takes place in the cabin. This particular scene was the last thing that needed to be filmed that day, so Kendrick and Jake Johnson decided to use real alcohol instead of the prop alcohol provided. Because the movie is entirely improvised, this gave the actors more control over the scenes - in this case, Johnson's character is in charge of the game, so Johnson decided to make Kendrick drink more.

I just needed a smaller place because my place is meant for two, and I am meant for one, so I am moving to a little place. It's good; it's got just enough room for me and my imaginary cat.

We just watched Drinking Buddies and we are still perplexed. I cannot agree with the reviews that rate this movie a 9 or even a 10 out of ten. I didn't know until I read one of the reviews that the dialogs were improvised. I should have known, because most of them were just awful. There is a reason that people like Hitchcock spent up to 5 months to create the script and the dialog, because without proper words the interactions seems to be totally useless. I still think that all the main characters were played by good actors, but a good actor is not necessarily a good improviser. I like independent movies and will continue to watch them, but next time I will read some reviews first. I give 3 out of ten, because the basic idea for the movie was good, just the realization was very amateurish.
