Well, I had read both positive and negative reviews of this movie, so I decided to check it out. While it might have some appeal to the under-25 crowd (although I doubt even that), I found it almost unbearably boring. The biggest problem was that I simply didn't care about any of the characters.

Swanberg once again shows a capacity for capturing small moments that exist outside the direction of the plot. At the same time, the effective fragments of "Drinking Buddies" take his oeuvre in a new direction by accumulating into a reworking big picture. Full Review
