Now that Community has ended, I need to get my fix of
Annie’s Boobs Alison Brie somewhere else and luckily Hollywood is happy to provide. This time around, it’s with Sleeping With Other People, a new romantic-dramedy from director Leslye Hedland (Bachelorette) that sees the plucky Brie teaming up with funnyman Jason Sudeikis as a couple of sex addicts who decide to try and just be friends.
Which admittedly sounds like the cliched central concept of so many other movies I’ve heard of or seen before, but which is apparently – at least according to all the highly superlative testimonials found in this charming first trailer – handled with a surprising amount of heart and maturity. Also, there’s Alison Brie in a crop top. What? I’m a man of simple pleasures!
Check out the trailer below.
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.
Sleeping With Other People also stars Amanda Peet, Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Mantzoukas. It is scheduled for limited release on September 11.
