The friends decide to spend a weekend together to look after suicidal Alex (Jason Ritter), but they soon become more interested in hooking up. 

Sarah (Plaza) sleeps with Josh (New Girl's Max Greenfield) and then later kisses Isaac (Max Minghella). Judging from the trailer, these two guys won't be besties anytime soon.

The film—which brings to mind '80s flick The Big Chill—was written and directed by Jesse Zwick, marking his directorial debut. The film is produced by The Bedford Falls Company, which is co-run by Jesse's father, The Last Samurai director Edward Zwick. Including Ritter and Minghella, there is quite a bit of Hollywood royalty involved with the film.
