"Ten years since Friends With Benefits, millennials are still trying to come up with reasons not to fall in love. The economy is not getting any better! Dating & New York, a new movie by writer-director Jonah Feingold, tackles the age-old question “What if we fooled around a little bit as friends?” from the perspective of two hopeless singles Milo (Jaboukie Young-White) and Wendy (Francesca Reale). “One more thing: the words ‘I love you’ cannot be used in an affectionate way,” Wendy proposes her “best friends with benefits” contract matter-of-factly, like there’s a Canva preset for these sorts of things. Milo loses sight of the plot immediately: “Yeah, ew,” he convinces no one. “Whenever two people start sleeping together, it gets complicated,” Catherine Cohen’s Jessie calls them out. Co-starring Brian Muller and Jerry Ferrara, Dating & New York (no relation to Sex & the City) premiered at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival and hits theaters September 10. Free date idea ;)"
