In "Sleeping with Other People," Jason Sudeikis proves he is ready to be a comedic leading man. For those of us who count ourselves as long-time fans of “Saturday Night Live,” this is not a surprise. Early into his first season, it was easy to tell he was a rare comedic talent. In this film, the full range of his acting talents is on display. Playing a character who possesses an inability to commit, he strikes up a “friends with benefits” relationship with a female counterpart. He is witty, charming and intellectual; all the things needed to succeed in a lead role. While the movie is filled with romantic comedy clichés and we get the ending we knew was coming all along, we were treated to a breakout performance. I, for one, can’t wait to see where he takes us next.
Thanks for entering my world,
