Editorial Reviews

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.

there are givens in movies: the big star never dies, action heroes shoot guns, femme fatales have long hair, there must be a scene in a toilet or bathroom, and you can't show a baby crying for more than 15 seconds. this is a mumblecore movie about four twentysomething people (two couples) so the givens are: they're confused about relationships, friendship matters as much or more than love, they can't complete a sentence without a slaw of particles ("uh", "um", "well", "really", "like", "so", etc.), and they're not full grown adults. they still have the egg tooth they used to hatch out of adolescence. they wear caps to bed, ride bikes to work, stay in other people's houses on the weekend and need friends to move to a new apartment. they flirt around without acknowledging they flirt around. they are good people partly because they don't know how to be bad people. there isn't any real drama, because drugs and guns are not involved and they fight by saying things like "you need to get real with this moment."

so, do you want to watch this movie or not? personally, and i'm medicare age, this took me back to my bartending days in the 70's and how messed up and confused sex and friendship really were. i thought the film was insightful and empathic, mixed humor and honesty, and brought four clever actors together, clever especially in their deadpan comic timing. the story shows you decent ordinary young people struggling with basic adult stuff, which is like watching eight year olds play scrabble. you smile, you want to help them out, but you can't. it's their game, and they have to work it all out for themselves.

My husband and I watched Drinking Buddies via Amazon stream last night and are still talking about it this morning. First, it is not the "hilarious comedy" noted in the description. In fact, whoever inserted those two words in the summary had either not seen the movie or thought tacking on "hilarious comedy" would boost sales. Reading some of the comments below indicates there are several people who were looking for hilarious comedy, didn't find it, and now dismiss the entire film. This is really too bad because Drinking Buddies is brilliant.

The story begins with two couples who appear woefully ill-suited to each other. Jake Johnson and Anna Kendrick? Really? The viewer cringes. Olivia Wilde and Ron Livingston . . boring. And then the 90 minutes unspool and the characters reveal themselves. By the end we know and understand more about these people, and perhaps ourselves, than we ever thought we would.

This movie is extremely realistic! I don't want to give anything away but the relationships in this movie function just like ones that I've had in real life.

This is not your typical, predictable romantic comedy but rather an almost documentary style film that shows the various intricacies of human relationships. It covers a broad spectrum that includes working, friends, and romantic relationships and how they all can coexist. There are many underlying themes here that anybody who's been in the single or "wish I was single again" world will easily relate to.

Don't let the title mislead you at all. The movie has the backdrop of a few characters who work at a brewery together, but it could be any workplace. This movie could have just been called "Good Friends" or something, but "Drink Buddies" is a much better title and plays to the setting.

I've seen a lot of negative reviews of this film. Don't believe them! If you are looking for something REAL without the super predictable outcomes of every other movie out there then watch Drinking Buddies ASAP! I hope you'll be as drawn into the characters as I was!

This movie is very honest in its portrayal of friendship, love and heartache. The characters are relatable and lovable. It can be predictable at times, but maybe that's because we've been through this personally.

If you want a romantic comedy with closure at the end this is not the movie for you. I read the rating ahead of time and thought people were lying when they said it had a bad ending but they were in fact telling the truth. I would recommend saving your time and not seeing this.

If you like beer, hanging with the dudes, or even exploring relationship circles told in an effortless way, you’re bound to love “Drinking Buddies.” This quiet little “mumblecore” film packed with all-too-familiar actors is something that epitomizes life as we know it now–as 20 to 30-something year olds in the year 2013. This could be titled a romantic-comedy, though its cool Chicago booziness and hipster-laden culture is too slick and real to mark off into some cliché genre. It’s charming and shaggy at the same time, giving you the feeling that you’re watching your own buddies interact unaware of a film reel going on; it explores some real territories of friendships and relationships you’ve probably witnessed in your own life.

I’m a huge Olivia Wilde fan and this role is definitely a treat to see her in. You get the sense that she’s being her all-natural self with hilarious sense of humor, and the whole cast seems to bask in that territory as well. Director Joe Swanberg, known for his effortlessness in allowing his characters to improvise and seem as natural as possible, doesn’t fail here. This movie perfects in the comic timing and cleverness we can’t get in real life. And Wilde definitely reveals a lot more depth and ambition than mainstream Hollywood would normally permit; we get a real glimpse into any everywoman living under her circumstances.

This is an easy and fun movie to watch, though, with that comes its easiness to neglect the subtle value inherent in it. The characters are written with ease and placed under circumstances familiar to us. It refuses to preach or hit you on the head with ideas or thoughts about relationships, as much more is said about how things would play out as they would in real life–without any of the extra drama or dragged emotions.
