The summer movie season is over, we’re still three months out from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the Oscar bait flicks haven’t begun to trickle out yet. So what movie are you going to go see this weekend? We think we may have one for you. The new film from the director of Bachelorette opens tomorrow, titled Sleeping With Other People, and if that’s not enough of an enticement for you to buy a ticket, here’s Allison Brie in her underwear.
Sleeping With Other People follows Alison Brie and her co-star Jason Sudeikis as old friends, Lainey and Jake (and by "old friends" we mean people who used to sleep together). After years of separation, they find themselves reunited in a self-help group for sex addicts - a recipe for a family friendly comedy if we ever heard one. In this clip from Entertainment Weekly, Brie explains to her buddy that when you sleep with somebody and then don’t call them, you run the risk of releasing their "Khaleesi." This appears to be a thing that all women have. Doing this apparently results in a limited number of options: Massive procreation, genital mutilation... or Alison Brie in her underwear. It’s a fitting name. As we all know from Game of Thrones, Khaleesi is beautiful. Khaleesi is alluring. Khaleesi can feed your ass to dragons if you make her mad.
The film is set to be an enjoyable adult experience. If the clip above is not enough, be sure to check out the red band trailer. It’s sort of an incredibly dirty version of When Harry Met Sally…, as our two characters attempt to stay platonic friends because they know sex will screw up the relationship. It’s just that in this case, it's not because men and women can't be friends - it’s because both people have diagnosed clinical issues regarding sex.
Sleeping With Other People looks to be competing with Trainwreck as the most adult comedy of 2015. While that movie included some incredible comedy, this one looks to be trying to be just as dirty, while keeping the drama intact as well. It will likely be a difficult tightrope to walk, but if they can pull it off it should make for a great movie.
Kirsten Dunst was originally attached to the film in its very early stages, but Alison Brie looks to be a great choice for the film. It also has a number of great co-stars including Adam Scott (who was apparently in talks to play the lead at one point), Amanda Peet, and Natasha Lyonne. It also has some major names behind the camera as well, with Will Ferrell as one of the producers. All of these people working alongside aforementioned writer/director Leslye Headland should be a formula for a great movie that your kids should never ever see.
