Directed by Wallace Wolodarsky, Seeing Other People features Jay Mohr and Julianne Nicholson as Ed and Alice, a soon-to-be married couple with one rather significant problem facing them: Alice doesn't think she's had enough sex to excuse settling down with one man for the rest of her life. Though reluctant, Ed agrees, at Alice's insistence, to have a premarital free-for-all of sorts; a period in which both Alice and Ed are allowed to explore sexual and emotional relationships with other people. Complications ensue when it turns out that fooling around with multiple partners as a… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's a lost-and-found innocence in their characters which Ms. Nicholson and Mr. Mohr express beautifully."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"A premise that is equal parts silly and cynical is stretched over 90 uncomfortable minutes, hitting just about every relationship cliché imaginable with incongruous spurts of graphic sex talk spiking the mostly ho-hum dialogue."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"...possesses the feel and tone of a typical sitcom, albeit a sitcom with several distinctly R-rated quirks."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The great cast should work together again on a project that aspires to be more than just pleasent. Not a bad movie, just a little too obvious."
‑ Collin Souter,
"A genial, harmless, uneventful little film that will have you smiling while you're also thinking about what to get for dinner after it ends."
‑ Larry Carroll,
"... sharp, sometimes nasty and truly funny ..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"It lacks the wit and depth to make it anything more than a mediocre tale of Hollywood malcontents."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"Silly sex farce involving self-absorbed people."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"The snappy one-liners, stereotypical characters, and labored narrative contrivances are all here in this episodic romantic comedy -- all that's missing are commercial breaks."
‑ Timothy Knight,
"It's not only sexy, clever and well-acted by a fine cast of mostly TV actors, but it's also a grown-up comedy about honest-to-God grown ups."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Premise sounds implausible, but Nicholson's thorough rendering of Alice as a willowy, intelligent and more than a bit self-deluded naif puts it over."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"This whiny, unpleasant comedy of infidelity makes a good case for staying celibate with the phone unplugged."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"dwells on the realistic effects of a fairly ridiculous idea - one that is clearly better suited to farce"
‑ Jesse Hassenger,
"It's a credit to that talent that this film, with it's completely implausible plot, never loses the audience, delving cleverly into male and female nature for some good belly laughs and, dare I say it, some thought-provoking insights as well."
‑ D.W. Smith, Film Threat
"A hit-and-miss sex farce that, though recognizably independent and refreshingly raunchy, could've benefited from less sitcomy slickness."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
