Friends with Benefits
Some friends come with a happy ending.
While trying to avoid the clichés of Hollywood romantic comedies, Dylan and Jamie soon discover however that adding the act of sex to their friendship does lead to complications.
Fuck you, Justin Timberlake.
You can't just go out there and go from slightly pathetic, curly boyband git to actor churning out a half decent romantic comedy, a genre which I am supposed to hate, and make me like it.
How dare you, you metrosexual bastard! Shame on you!
And stop touching my wife!
Awful. What makes this particular film so bad is that it thinks it's better than other romantic comedies of this type. In fact, it continuously talks about and mocks these kinds of films. Except it didn't earn this right at all, because it's just as cliched and ridiculous. It takes too long to get to exactly where you know it's going and then resolves in literally 2 minutes through a completely ridiculous romcom ending. I never thought in my life I would utter the phrase, "No Strings Attached was better."
i want to both be and do mila kunis.
Standard bread-and-butter, 'real world' rom-com. Kunis and Timberlake are predictably adorable and quite funny. I did enjoy this, but it is instantly forgettable once you've finished.
Clearly they're good for each, clearly they like each other, clearly they'll end up together. Do I think this film is going to stray from its predictable plot? Clearly not.
It's a bit of fun for a light Sunday watch. Or, if you want to believe in love again... Ha!
Ah, I don't care if it's clichéd and predictable, this is one of my favourite rom-coms. Fantastic witty dialogue, some good character work going on, and some nice clever fourth wall jokes.
It's just nice, okay?
Will Gluck gave us one of the sharpest high school movies of recent years with the wonderful "Easy A". This romantic comedy has real chemistry between its leads and Mila Kunis melting the screen with a role as hot as her turn in "Black Swan".
Gluck's film, has, in the first half hour more laugh out loud moments that every romantic comedy Sarah Jessica Parker has ever done. The writing is top notch and Justin Timberbollocks and Kunis spar beautifully with passion and more than a little spice. Romantic comedies are not my thing at all and I normally avoid them like the plague but this had just the right ingredients to pique my interest. Kunis has charm and is…
So around the same time there was this movie and a move starring Ashton Kutcher where the co stars of the film are friends and think they can sleep together and keep it from turning into something. I didn't see that one and Friends with Benefits turned up on netflix streaming so i checked it out.
It was solid. I've seen this idea over 15 years ago in a Seinfeld episode but Timberlake and Kunis are pretty likeable in this and have a chemistry. This isnt the kind of film I normally watch but I thought it was ok.
Didn't have high expectations for this film, nevertheless, it was a cute afternoon film that attempted to address issues with contemporary relationships. I was not completely sold on the acting, but there was a fair amount of chemistry between the two main characters. The shots of New York made me slightly nostalgic. All in all, not a complete waste of time, but as far as romantic comedies, it doesn't push any boundaries.
Late Night Cable on Valentine's Day.... dont do it man.
Mila Kunis is very hot, first of all! Who knew Justin Timberlake could act. Both actors made the movie a great one. I love that its funny and dramatic at the same time. Its a very different love story than most love stereotypical stories. Good movie!
A light hearted romantic comedy
FREUNDE MIT GEWISSEN VORZÜGEN
Der Titel des Filmes macht auch ziemlich schnell den Inhalt deutlich. Jeder Single sollte diese neudeutschen friends mit benefits haben. :-)
Die moderne Liebeskomödie klingt zwar vom Namen her kitschig, ist aber auch wirklich für (auch thematisch) Männer ansehbar.
Ich habe mich in keiner Minute des Filmes gelangweilt: schöne Menschen, schöne Stadt, schöne Story! Immer wieder herausstechend aus der Handlung ist Woody Harrelson, der einen stockschwulen Sportreporter spielt.
Auch mit dem Partner kann man den Film gemütlich zusammenschauen. Die Männer können sich dann an MILA KUNIS ergötzen und die Frauen können ein Mal einen Abend mit JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE verbringen, bevor dann wieder der traurige Alltag am Abend im Bett anzutreffen ist! :-)

Pleasantly surprising, I found this movie to be hilarious and a really enjoyable watch. The acting and overall look of the film were great and I really loved the first scenes involving Dylan's first night in New York.
Fun and pretty charming.

Apparently, two-person, monomagous relationships just aren't interesting enough for some filmmakers. I'm okay with that.
