  • Chris Barsanti @ PopMatters
    • Excerpt: A deconstructive sweet-and-sourball of a romantic comedy.
  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: While it’s nice to see Sudeikis stretch from his usual comedic roles into something more heartfelt and real, the film frequently makes no sense. Even worse, it’s not funny.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Sleeping with Other People may take a long and winding road to get to its destination, but the destination is as conventional as we expect and fear it will be.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Sleeping with Other People is certainly more frank and fizzy than the majority of romantic comedies to come down the pike, but it’s not as radically fresh as it thinks it is, either.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Carson Lund @ Slant Magazine
    • Excerpt: Aside from a gratuitous sight gag where a character’s water breaks in public, and a scene where Jake picks apart a girlfriend’s insecurities a bit too ruthlessly, the mean-spiritedness of Headland’s Bachelorette is mercifully gone. In its place is the bubbly chemistry of Sudeikis and Brie, who energize Headland’s mechanical shot/reverse-shot cutting patterns and rise above the script’s awkward attempts at hipness.
  • Jared Mobarak @ BuffaloVibe
    • Excerpt: The plot isn’t groundbreaking, reconnecting two people twelve or so years after losing their virginity together for platonic shenanigans masking an underlying romance, but it does it with as much care for their tumultuous psyches as it does the inherent humor.

    • Excerpt: Simple but Funny

    • Excerpt: Like one of Jake or Lainey’s many conquests, this one will be forgotten by morning.
