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.

It's a meandering film that prompts the viewer to anticipate characters' actions. Fortunately, they don't take predictable paths. Full Review

Credit Swanberg who served as both director and editor for making a film that feels loose without ever being ponderous or phony. Full Review

The best thing you can say about the movie is that you couldn’t accuse it of being a sellout — nor would you think it was a Joe Swanberg movie. Full Review
Ella Taylor
If Drinking Buddies is meant to be his ticket into mainstream comedy, it feels mumblecore-ishly vague and rambling in its construction, like "Hannah Takes the Stairs" without the raffish charm. Full Review
Eric Kohn
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
