Sundance 2015: You should abstain from ‘Sleeping with Other People’

With each new inferior romantic-comedy, you come to appreciate the delicate brilliance of When Harry Met Sally just a little bit more. Sleeping with Other People is a particularly egregious offender because it borrows so heavily from the classic.
