Drinking Buddies Trailer: Anna Kendrick, Jake Johnson, and Olivia Wilde in One Movie? Can We Inject It Into Our Eyeballs?

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | June 21, 2013 | Comments ()


You're probably thinking that a movie with so many great people in it -- Nick from "New Girl," Anna Kendrick, Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston, and even Jason Sudeikis -- can't be as good as that cast, can it? It's like The Avengers of awesome Pajiba favorites. But, it is that good. Drinking Buddies played at SXSW this year, and the movie just blew us away -- only Short Term 12, an early contender for best movie of the year -- impressed us more.

Drinking Buddies is funny. And confusing. And sweet. And bittersweet. And all kinds of great, and beardo Jake Johnson is an absolute delight.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    how come they don't have a beer belly with the amount of beer they are drinking?

  • Martin E

    Why can't I live in a world where I have to choose between Anna Kendrick and Olivia Wilde?

  • ,

    I like the girl unreasonably much, but it appears Olivia still hasn't figured out that her most entrancing quality isn't her little boobies, cute as they are, but her amazing alien eyes.

  • I'm not sure I can handle Anna Kendrick being heartbroken. She's got the Alyson Hannigan quality that forces me to sympathize with her.

    I wish her and Olivia Wilde would have played the other's part. Jake Johnson having naughty feelings for Anna Kendrick would be like Jess and Nick times 100.

    wasn't this the plot of a new girl episode

  • tamatha_uhmelmahaye

    That movie looks fabulous. And also, now I want a beer. It is, unfortunately, not beer o-clock. I'll have to make up for it by having extra beer later.

  • WestCoastPat

    Wilde gets top billing in this post over Livingston? What happened to you, Pajiba? You've changed, man

  • toblerone

    Thats Pajiba for you and their misguided love for Olivias.

    If anything giving her top billing guarantees no one will see this movie with her box office track record.

  • annie

    Maybe because she and Jake are the actual leads of the movie? But that doesn't explain why Jake is third. HMMM.

  • Amy Love

    Yeah, hey, Ron Livingston at least deserves second billing, after Anna Kendrick.

  • annie

    I'm ridiculously excited for this. Has nothing to do with the whole improvised thing, Olivia's penchant for bralessness (and awesomeness) or Jake Johnson's mighty beard or their clearly awesome chemistry. Okay, it has a little to do with those.

  • 7:52 am MDT. Kitchen table. Man in shorts and t-shirt sitting at laptop, in the style of modern life.

    A man gets up from table, walks slowly to fridge, pulls out a beer, walks to window over sink while taking out bottle opener. Takes a decent first pull of the beer while looking outside, walks over to the table sits down and goes back to whatever he was doing on his computer.

  • BWeaves

    That did not interest me at all. Then again, drinking and hooking up was never a fun activity. I'd rather be hanging out with weavers.

    Also, Ron Livingston reminds me of Bob Benson from Mad Men. It took me this long to figure out why Bob reminded me of someone I couldn't place.

  • Boston Red

    Poor Ron Livingston. Not feeling the Pajiba love.

  • theotherone

    He doesn't need Pajiba's love because he gets to go to Rosemarie DeWitt every night.

  • Blake

    Peter Gibbons totally wouldn't give a sh*t though.

    Pajiba what?

  • I am totally in.
