The R-rated romantic comedy is not among my go-to genres. But Sleeping With Other People was written and directed by Leslye Headland who is one of the creators of my favorite piece of 2019 media so far, Russian Doll. So I rolled the dice on this one and I'm glad I did. It's stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie as two serial philanderers with commitment issues who meet cute-ish at a sex addicts meeting years after their first encounter in college. It's a romantic comedy, so you know where it's headed, but it manages to be charming along the way. The leads have believable chemistry and the supporting cast (especially Jason Mantzoukas and Andrea Savage) are uniformly good.
Recommended, if you like the genre.
