Drinking Buddies (2013)

It's way too fun watching Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson together. Borderline stalker-ish. They have loads of chemistry, LOADS.

Johnson has perfected the role of an "average guy," and he's crafted it in a way that makes it completely entertaining. His work on New Girl proves that he's able to deliver "relatable" and funny on a weekly basis, and Drinking Buddies amplifies that charming everyman persona. And let's not forget Olivia Wilde... fans of House knew back then she deserved a true starring role. This is it. Her character gets to be messy, complicated, three-dimensional, smart, witty, and an overall a well-rounded female lead. These kind of starring roles are rare to come along in Hollywood, especially for women. Wilde needs more projects of this caliber, quick and pronto.

I'd be remiss to not mention Joe Swanberg, and the finely tuned cast he assembled as director. Everything about this movie screamed Swanberg's touch, but in the most subtle ways.  For those familiar with his early work (Hannah Takes the Stairs) and his mumblecore beginnings you'll find yourself saying, "Wait, is this a Swanberg film?" Why, yes, it is indeed.



Available on Netflix.
