Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Drinking Buddies centers on co-workers at a Chicago brewery who are wondering whether they should be more than "just friends," despite the fact that both are involved with other people. Unsurprisingly (considering the title), there's lots of drinking -- at work, after work, on weekends, at parties, and pretty much any other time -- frequently to the point of drunkenness. There's also plenty of swearing ("f--k," "s--t," and more), a glimpse of a naked woman before she runs into a lake to skinny dip, suggested sex, and some smoking.

Sexual Content

Couples fool around and are soon after seen getting out of bed. A man and a woman flirt overtly, though it's never clear whether either of them will take it any further. A brief scene shows a naked woman running into a lake to go skinny dipping at night; her breasts and back are glimpsed momentarily.


Couples have intense discussions. A guy gets into a brief brawl over parking spaces.


Plenty of casual swearing, including "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," "p---y," "d--k," and more.

Social Behavior

Luke and Kate have a great friendship, but it's clear that they're both thinking about whether it should be more than that. This complicated question is made even more so by the fact that they're both involved with other people, and nobody wants to hurt anyone else.


A few Apple products are visible, including iPhones and a Mac computer. An important scene features a U-Haul truck.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The main characters work at a brewery and drink beer nearly constantly, at all hours of the day; they sometimes get pretty drunk. One man stands out for his preference for wine and scotch. A few scenes have people doing shots. One character smokes cigarettes.
