    Synopsis


    Drinking Buddies
    Indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg wrote and directed this romantic comedy drama centering on the sexual tension between craft-brewery employees Luke (Jake Johnson) and Kate (Olivia Wilde), who wrestle with their growing attraction to one another due to the fact that they're already both in committed relationships. With Luke's marriage-minded girlfriend Jill (Anna Kendrick) and Kate's boyfriend Chris (Ron Livingston) out of the picture for a weekend, the flirtatious co-workers learn there is no denying what the heart really wants. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A touching dramedy cast in authenticity

      Drinking Buddies defies expectations of movie romance and comedy with a little harsh reality mixed with its sincere portrayals of friendship and courtship. At a lean ninety minutes it doesn't overstay its welcome; as a romance, it doesn't overplay its drama; and as a comedy, it doesn't overstretch itself to make a joke. And thanks in no small part to a lack of manipulative tropes, it is a more authentic storytelling experience, thus more involving than the average or even above-average romantic comedy.

      Hilarious movie about beer, friends, life

      The DVD costs $14.99, but the blu-ray is only $9.99; when you can find it. A combo would have been nice but I understand that these small budgeted, independent films are in need of recouping their costs. I loved it and I think if you like late 20's-early 30's films about beer, friendship, relationships, etc. this is the film for you.

      Great Little Indie

      This is a great subtle look at a relationship between a man and a woman trying to just be friends in a culture that pushes them to be romantic. All the performances are great and everything feels very natural. A slight letdown when compared to the director's masterpiece, Nights and Weekends.

      This movie arrived quickly, and packaged well with no damage. This movie is such a great combination of awkwardness and chemistry. It feels as though you are peeking in on someone else's life. Anna Kendrick and Olivia Wilde really steal the show.

      Didn't know this was an improvised movie til after I watched it. Definitely made more sense then because some of the conversations were weird and the lines were not that great. Enjoyed it because it was something different.

      I watched this because I like movies about drinking beer, and I liked the cast. It was a good movie and is worth watching. I probably did not need to buy it though.

      I enjoyed Drinking Buddies. I watched it with someone who doesn't know how to appreciate independent films though. Don't make my mistake.
