Mutual Friends

85 min minutes

Against the backdrop of Liv planning a surprise party for her straight-laced fiancée Christoph, Matthew Watts’s romantic comedy weaves together a handful of coming-of-age plotlines in which the man-boys in Liv and Christoph’s friend group learn the error of their ways from a stoner couple, a one-afternoon stand, and Liv’s dopey, law school-dropout brother. The film moves quickly to squeeze in all the characters, and the resulting cross-section of quirky 30-somethings is a deliciously guilty pleasure. (JEN KAGAN)
