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!
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…
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?
Fun and pretty charming.
Not without a few laughs and I like Kunis I think she has something on screen, Timberlake is an obvious talent but I'm not sure he can carry a film, its too goofy for the most part and a tad annoying in others.
The chemistry between Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake is this film's strongest asset, and is one of the best on-screen rom-com pairings since Hudson and McConaughey.
The way this RomCom attacks and ridicules other RomComs is pathetic, it's not that great after all. The story has some refreshing, uplifting bits and it's fairly quotable but that's it.
Annoyingly, Justin Timberlake is excellent in everything he does. Mila Kunis is very good, too.
It's a lousy film but it sums up this generation's take on sex, relationships and people. All material, meaningless and disposable.
Because I am not a great fan of Justin Timberlake, it was a surprise for me that finally I could enjoy a movie where he is a star. Actually , without Mila Kunis he wouldn't do much of a good job - in the movie she is Jamie, a woman trying to recruit Dylan to interview for a job with GQ magazine and begin working in New York City. They spend a fun night together exploring the city and Dylan agrees to take the job. Somehow, one night, while hanging out at Jamie's apartment watching a romantic comedy, they get on the topic of sex and relationships and both come to the conclusion that sex should not come with so…
Better than No Strings Attached. Thats not saying much though.

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