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
Globe and Mail

Writer-director Leslye Headland has made a film that is saucy and sweet, for the boys and for the girls -- an R-rated Seinfeld, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Matthew Lickona
San Diego Reader

Sudeikis' smooth charisma and Brie's wide-eyed charm almost carry the film, but while Headland bravely chooses to skip certain expected rom-com beats, she also fails to earn certain rom-com payoffs.

Matthew Bond
The Mail on Sunday (UK)

This seems smug and overindulged, with several scenes feeling like they've been improvised way past a point when that's a good thing.

Bruce Demara
Toronto Star

Screenwriter-director Leslye Headland has an ear for dialogue and offbeat characters, but the film never feels fresh or engaging.

Molly Eichel
Philadelphia Inquirer

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

M. Faust
The Public (Buffalo)

Sleeping revives romantic comedy by populating it with fully fleshed-out characters. The stars are both sympathetic and charming, especially Sudeikis-who knew he had it in him after years of post-SNL comedies?

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

Andrew O'Hehir

"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.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

If anything, the film works best as a showcase for [Allison] Brie, who can turn on a dime from silly to serious.

I feel like I wasted my time on this one. Extremely b grade, and not in a good way.
