"Sleeping with Other People" is going to be compared to the classic "When Harry When Sally" as it has the same message in that can a man and a woman ever be just friends.

In place of Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan we now have Jason Sudeikas and Alison Brie. who play Jake and Lainey. After a one night stand where the pair lose their virginity to each other Jake (Sudeikas) and Lainey (Brie) go their own ways and it’s not until many years later that the pair meet at a sex addicts meeting.

As well as being sex addicts both have commitment issues, Lainey is infatuated by horrible and sleazy soon-to-be-married lover whilst Jake is a commitment-phobic who sleeps and then dumps every woman that he meets. Despite being sexually attracted to everyone that they meet the pair agree to embark on a platonic relationship.

What follows as the pair mutually support each other as each of their various relationships hit the skids is not very hard to guess however there's a lot of fun to be had in the journey. Sudeikis is good however it's Brie who shines and gives the standout performance of the two.

"Sleeping with Other People" is nothing other than a dirtier version of "When Harry Met Sally" but then again that's no bad thing.

Recommended.
