Trailer for ‘Drinking Buddies’ makes us want to get drunk

By / 06.21.13

We finally have the first Drinking Buddies trailer, which is a romantic comedy set in a craft brewery. Talk about trendy! Jake Johnson even has a beard so you can tell he’s a brewer. Just don’t let your girlfriend trick you into seeing it under the pretense of beer. The trailer makes me think Olivia Wilde is the only redeeming quality. That’s a pretty great quality though.

I’ve been on guard for red herrings,the brewery in this case, since I was tricked into seeing the Robert Pattinson movie, Remember Me. The girl I was dating told me it was about a street fighter. It turned out Edward just happened to get in a fight on the street in the first 5 minutes, and that was it. The rest of the movie was about the two main characters being whiny little bitches, then pan out, 9-11! Worst. Movie. Ever. Needless to say that relationship didn’t last.

Kate (Olivia Wilde) and Luke (Jake Johnson) work together at a craft brewery. They have one of those friendships that feels like it could be something more. But Kate is with Chris (Ron Livingston), and Luke is with Jill (Anna Kendrick). And Jill wants to know if Luke is ready to talk about marriage. The answer to that question becomes crystal clear when Luke and Kate unexpectedly find themselves alone for a weekend.

Fun fact: Drinking Buddies was partially filmed at Revolution Brewing in Chicago, one of my favorite spots.
