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.Written by

I know that you stop breathing when you kiss, that when you lean in to whisper you put your lips right ence the back of my earlobe, that you kiss the back of my neck before you slip my coat over my shoulders. I remember every compliment you ever gave me, everything you ever did to me in bed. And the day you made me yours, the day you said; "Elaine, I wish I could've known you when you were a little girl, so that I could've been...
Could've been your true love. I remember too, you know.

You have already seen it and it was better the first time
I am a huge fan of Jason Sudeikis and I was confident that he would choose material that was original so I decided to invest in this film without researching it. What a disappointment. First of all, it is the exact formulaic premise that we have all watched for the past 40 years. You know the type..."I am in my 30's and life is so complex/Sex makes everything so complicated/I just can't grow up/Nobody understands me". Secondarily, in order to be plausible, you have to believe that Jason Sudeikis can pull of being a womanizer. As I said, I am a huge fan but I think it is too big of a stretch for him to pull that off. The actors all did their jobs bringing mediocre material to almost watchable but in the end, it's just another romantic comedy about a guy and girl who love each other but aren't together for whatever implausible reason. I am not sure how these mediocre scripts continue to get funded.
