More Info:
  • Drew McWeeny

    There is real wisdom and honesty in every moment of the film, and that's refreshing in a genre that is built largely on fantasy every bit as disconnected from our reality as any superhero film.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    Headland doesn’t entirely subvert the romantic comedy genre here, but she certainly has fun twisting up some of its most obvious tropes for a little added pizzazz and some major laughs.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    Sleeping With Other People is a brittle, bawdy, frequently funny romcom that might be too smart for its own good.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Geoff Berkshire

    Headland demonstrated little interest in playing it safe with her previous film... But here she reins in that impulse almost too much, and Sleeping With Other People winds up both looking (with its adequate but unremarkable tech package) and often feeling like a run-of-the-mill studio comedy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The small miracle of Leslye Headland’s second film as writer-director is not that it sidesteps its influences or shuns its genre. It’s that it somehow makes the lusty undercurrents of its male/female friendship unironically romantic and, at times, unapologetically sexy.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Sudeikis and Brie make for one of the most endearing pairings of the year, and Headland has delivered one of my favorite romantic comedies in recent memory.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Rom-coms died because they weren’t very rom and didn’t have enough com. But Sleeping With Other People, which is both hilarious and emotionally alive, is as delightful as a first date that crackles with possibility.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Even if you think you’ve seen this movie before, Headland’s gift for outrageous dialogue... and Sudeikis and Brie’s comic chemistry make Sleeping with Other People a treat from start to finish.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    It’s a smart, flawed movie about smart, flawed people.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    It’s a shrewd last move in a movie that’s uncommonly smart about when to buck convention and when to conform to the warm feels we all want.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Sleeping with Other People turns out to be more entertaining than it sounds. The movie, that is.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Rubenstein

    Jake finally looks like a catch, of all things, and you can hear half the audience whispering that they’ll have what Lainey’s having.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Nick Allen

    Headland defined the movie herself at the Utah festival during its world premiere, Sleeping with Other People is "'When Harry Met Sally' for assholes." Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It makes you laugh till it hurts.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • 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. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Sleeping With Other People is a rare American non-homogenized rom-com, and it’s delightful even when you’re not sure what you’re watching.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The script makes the characters a little too witty and spot-on with cultural references, but what makes it work, to the extent that it does, is the innate liability of Sudeikis and Brie.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Headland's film might have been more engaging if it were about its supporting characters.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    It hurts that most of the jokes fall short of their potential, especially because Headland refuses to milk easy laughs by winking at genre clichés, but her decision to play things straight helps clarify a truth at the heart of movies like this.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The romantic comedy boasts two winning leads in Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie, as well as some sweet, funny moments amid the Aaron Sorkin-esque dialogue — courtesy of writer-director Leslye Headland — that’s a little too clever for its own believability.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Though the leads lend charm and comic timing to the unpersuasive material, it would take a ground-up rewrite to make the fate of their characters matter.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Ms. Headland has a concept for a latter-day screwball comedy — two romantically challenged friends whose hang-ups create a roadblock to coupledom — but she doesn’t have the jokes or the emotionally textured characters that can fill in that conceit.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    You have this movie’s number right from the start: Despite some some name-checks of Malcolm Gladwell and Aaron Sorkin, it’s the same old romantic comedy squeezed into a sexy new outfit.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    The movie grows easier to like in the later, straighter going, as it stops pushing so aggressively to be naughty and lets its characters try on some introspection.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A dismal hack job pretending to be a take on modern relationships.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Carson Lund

    This is exactly the kind of movie at which David Wain took aim with his sublime rom-com parody They Came Together.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Kat Poole

    Luckily, the two leads’ chemistry make it a happy, if not completely satisfying, ending.
