Drinking BuddiesAcclaimed comedy Drinking Buddies was an official selection of the SXSW Film Festival.

Olivia Wilde (Deadfall) and Jake Johnson (No Strings Attached) star in the movie as co-workers Kate and Luke at a Chicago brewery where they spend their days drinking and flirting. The beer makes the line between friends and more than friends blur, but that causes problems with Luke’s almost fiance (Anna Kendrick, End of Watch) and Kate’s music producer boyfriend (Ron Livingston, The Odd Life of Timothy Green).

Drinking Buddies screened in only a couple of theaters but got rave reviews. Critics gave the R-rated film 80% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers weren’t as bowled over, giving the movie only 59%.

The DVD and Blu-ray contain a few special features. Here’s the list:
