Joe, You Should Have Made It More Filling: “Drinking Buddies”

The dialogue in the movie Drinking Buddies (2013) is so natural it is eminently dull and banal.  At least it’s a romantic drama that doesn’t care about the conventions of American romantic flicks, but it is pretty thin.  Also, why the women in the film are so fond of the bearded, uninteresting schlub named Luke (Jake Johnson) I don’t know.  Man, is Olivia Wilde a friendly tease to him. 

It’s very well acted, this Joe Swanberg film, but other people liked it better than I did.
