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.

User Reviews

Not everyone will like it as much as I did, but some might.
24 January 2016 | by ga_xSee all my reviews

Let's start by saying, you can't take the title as an accurate representation of this movie. It suits it very well though, just not in a literal sense. Some people didn't like it because they expected an original comedy about open relationships and got a romantic comedy about two emotionally messed up individuals. And if you aren't expecting it to be something else, this movie absolutely nails it.

I know not everyone wants to see a movie about those kind of characters, but I'm really sick of rom-coms about people who have a healthy relationship with sex unless they're a bad guy or someone whose not mean to find love. I thought it was really refreshing to see characters with these issues and the movie was well done. Sure it's a romantic comedy with all the right clichés and cheeky music, and sure the characters aren't relatable to everyone, but for me, it was just perfect.
