At some point, I’m hoping to build an educated opinion on Drinking Buddies that is significantly better than GEE, OLIVIA WILDE U R VRY PRETTY! But I’m still having no luck with that and will continue stabbing my Jason Sudeikis voodoo doll in the genitals on my coffee breaks.
As for the plot:
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.
And Luke, played by New Girl’s Jake Johnson, has the difficult life of being in a serious relationship with Anna Kendrick but in love with Wilde. It’s exactly what would happen to me if I found myself alone on an island with Kendrick and Wilde and still didn’t look anything like me.
