Years after impulsively losing their virginity to each other in college, Lainey and Jake meet at a support group in New York (“What’s a nice girl like you doing at a sex addicts meeting?”). A spark resurfaces, but they’ve walked this road before. Abject failures in romance who lead lives of serial infidelity and self-sabotage, they agree to a platonic friendship to mutually support their recovery - and what’s more supportive than teaching your friend proper self-stimulation? Can love bloom while you’re sleeping with other people?

REVIEWS Sleeping With Other People - Abstaining from sex in the city

GET HARD (2015)
Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Craig T. Nelson and Alison Brie. Directed by Etan Cohen.

When millionaire hedge fund manager James King is nailed for fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James’ one-percenter assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison. Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to ‘get hard’ and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things – including each other.

REVIEWS Get Hard - Prison puns aplenty
