Drinking Buddies (15)

Comedy, Drama, Romance

Luke and Kate are co-workers at a Chicago brewery, where they spend their days drinking and flirting. Read more …

They're perfect for each other, except that they're both in relationships. Luke is in the midst of marriage talks with his girlfriend of six years, Kate is playing it cool with her music producer boyfriend Chris. But you know what makes the line between "friends" and "more than friends" really blurry? Beer.

The critical consensus

After Smashed and The World’s End, the run of drinking movies stays for one more round – a romcom that refreshes the parts others don’t reach, with Olivia Wilde on stellar form.

****(*)Stephen Kelly, Total Film, 28/10/2013

As in Rohmer's movies, the protagonists are young, good-looking and prone to negotiating themselves into a huge romantic pickle.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey macnab, The Independent, 31/10/2013

It's an intriguing and distinctive story, soberly told.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 31/10/2013

Always nice to see what Swanberg's up to, but this one didn't work for us.

**(*)(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 31/10/2013

This ensemble flick feels more like a one-woman show. Seemingly effortlessly, Wilde steals the film from her co-stars, in a role where she's finally given room to breathe as an actress.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 01/11/2013

It’s a fine example of funny, truthful filmmaking.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 02/11/2013

More mature than its plot, premise and even its ancestry suggest. There are emotional razors amid the wooziness.
