COS|Review by Justin Gerber
The best part of Sleeping with Other People sadly arrives during its closing credits. Xander (Jason Mantzoukas) and his wife Naomi (Andrea Savage) are waiting at a location for friends to arrive, and as the credits roll on the right side of the screen, the couple engages in amusing conversation to the left.

Way Too Indie|Review by Ananda Dillon
You won’t catch me complaining about rom-coms or decrying the genre as lifeless, well-worn, or ready for bed. One cannot blame a film genre for the laziness of writers, directors, and narrow-minded studios.
