Consensus: Sleeping with Other People has likable leads and flashes of inspiration, but seems unwilling or unable to surround them with the truly subversive rom-com they deserve.

Brad Wheeler

"Sleeping With Other People" is one of the best and funniest recent attempts to update the rom-com - but the container feels too antiquated for the world it captures, which is so furiously alive.

...funny, sexy and wonderfully free of reflexive irony. It's exactly what a romantic comedy ought to be.

A lot happens way too quickly in the final act but Sudeikis and Brie are utterly irresistible.

A great modern rom com that rejects cliches set by the genre while exploring the complexities of platonic love and what sex does, or doesn't mean in a… More
