The new trailer for "Drinking Buddies" poses the age-old question of whether or not men and women can ever really be just friends, and if the epic flirting between co-workers Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) is any indication, the answer is a resounding no.
The two work together at a craft brewery, where they spend their days making and drinking beer, acting every bit like a squabbling, cutesy couple -- except that they're both dating other people. Anna Kendrick and Ron Livingston play Luke and Kate's respective significant others, and the moment when the foursome finally meets for the first time is a perfectly awkward example of what can happen when two very different worlds collide.
It would seem the trailer gives a lot of the plot away -- namely, that Luke and Kate are on the fast track to ditch their partners and take up with each other -- but the great talent involved suggests that there's more going on than meets the eye. Plus, Johnson sports an epic Grizzly Adams beard, and that's gotta be worth the price of admission alone.
