Shouldn’t Alison Brie be a movie star by now? I think she should. I’ve been awaiting a breakout for the Community actress for awhile now, especially after a run of strong movie supporting roles. The upcoming “Sleeping With Other People” could be the one.
The film, from “Bachelorette” director Leslye Headland, stars Brie and Jason Sudeikis as a pair of old flames who meet each other in a sex addiction support group and then form something like a coupling.
That looks very funny. The central couple is great together, and it looks like a top-notch supporting cast, led by Jason Mantzoukas, Natasha Lyonne, Amanda Peet andAdam Scott.
The one concern? This looks pretty close to the Apatow/Farrelly template, in which the story is raunchy and naughty as can be, but ultimately the film’s values are in favor of conformity, monogamy and traditional values.
