Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Sleeping with Other People is a romcom that's heavy on sexual content. It centers on a man (Jason Sudeikis) and a woman (Alison Brie) who struggle with monogamy and end up becoming platonic friends, even though they're very open about their mutual attraction. Characters talk a lot about sex, and there are several long, suggestive sex scenes -- and plenty of women in their underwear -- but no actual graphic nudity. Expect frequent swearing (especially "f--k," "s--t," and "d--k"), and scenes in which characters drink, smoke cigarettes, and -- in one long sequence -- take Ecstasy while at a child's birthday party.

Sexual Content

The whole plot revolves around serial infidelity (and ultimately breaking that pattern). The main characters agree not to sleep together, despite their obvious attraction, but both engage in plenty of sex with others; several scenes show them in bed (and other locations), moving, grunting, and eventually falling down exhausted. Several woman are seen in their underwear, but no graphic nudity is shown. Several graphic verbal descriptions of various sexual activities. While high, a character takes off her shirt, revealing a red bikini top, and tries to get children to join her in an uninhibited dance.


A fist fight involves punches, wrestling, and grappling on the ground; the fighters end up with disheveled clothes and a bloody nose, respectively.


Frequent swearing includes "f--k," "s--t," "d--k" and "a--hole," in addition to many sexual references.

Social Behavior

Sex is easy, but love requires commitment and a willingness to be vulnerable. Taking the time to develop a real relationship can help you form a deep connection.


A newly rich character talks about buying a Tesla. A person who's moving to another city loads her stuff in a U-Haul truck .

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Several scenes set at bars show people drinking beer, shots, and stronger drinks. Adults drink wine at meals and parties; a few characters smoke cigarettes. One long sequence involves two characters who are high on Ecstasy during a 7-year-old's birthday party.
