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.

It's obvious where "Sleeping with Other People" is going; the fun is in getting there.

The desperation to overdo everything ruins what might otherwise have been a charming little rom-com, with likable stars, great co-stars, and some sharp bits of dialogue.

Headland writes the standard-issue surplus of subplots and scene-hogging supporting characters into the script, but a loose vibe and a cast of adept improvisers push it over.

Headland refuses to redeem her characters, which is what makes "Sleeping With Other People" ultimately more interesting than other rom-coms.

If there's a way to charm us with the approach, Headland (writer of 2014's "About Last Night" update) never really finds it, squandering the appeal of leads Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie.

Leslye Headland has a knack for taking familiar rom-com situations and injecting into them a hardcore dose of truth. Truth can be uncomfortable, but as this movie illustrates, it can be riotously exhilarating as well.

"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.

Minneapolis Star Tribune

As we watch changes of conscience emerge and moral comeuppance arrive, this freewheeling alternative to the standard date movie emerges as one of the year's best surprises.

Salt Lake City Weekly

It's hard to shake the notion that Leslye Headland wants soooo badly to make the 21st-century version of When Harry Met Sally..., but there's not nearly the same unique chemistry and relationship insight to match the raunchy jokes.
