DRINKING BUDDIES (2013) (dir. Swanberg) (Anna Kendrick, Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston)

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

I can't watch the trailer at work but the synopsis isn't exactly getting me excited. But I'm hard pressed to miss a movie starring Anna Kendrick's boobs.

I thought this was another film in the long line of Air Buddies movies.

Anybody else seen this yet? I was kind of hoping to read some serious feedback or review other than Kendrick's boobs.

I thought the ensemble was great. You can actually feel the cast had great chemistry with each other. The story as little as it is, held the film together pretty well. It didn't feel like it was dragging on. I had trouble processing this one. Mostly because I can't understand how Luke is this such a wonderful guy that these two gals are dying to be with. I thought Luke was a douche-bag. Guys like that are a dime a dozen. They should have dealt with the story plot a little more serious, instead of cop out just when the confrontation is getting serious and real. It could have been a great movie, instead it felt hallow.

I watched it this morning and liked it up until the end. Not a big fan of
Spoiler:
ambiguous endings. Come on, just set Luke and Kate up, they obviously want each other!
That said I thought the cast was great. Worth a watch if you like similar movies like Cyrus, Jeff Who Lives At Home, Cyrus, Safety Not Guaranteed, etc.

Also for anyone wondering, you do not see Anna Kendricks' tits in this. You do see Olivia Wilde's though.
