Weekend trips, office parties, late night conversations, drinking on the job, marriage pressure, biological clocks, holding eye contact a second too long… you know what makes the line between “friends” and “more than friends” really blurry? Beer.

Director and writer Joe Swanberg is showing the influence of a lot of different filmmakers in this story...there's a little Bergman, a little Woody Allen, and especially a little Nora Ephron because fans of When Harry Met Sally will recognize a lot of the issues explored here, though it would have been nice if Swanberg had spent a little less time on exposition and gotten directly to the meat of the story...the weekend where everything looks wrong on the surface.
