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.
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?
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…
Dette er en film man sikkert burde hade. En helt klassisk romantisk komedie uden noget nyt... Og så alligevel..
Hvis man er i humør til en omgang let underholdning er dette virkelig i den gode ende :-)
Måske lidt en guilty pleasure...
I thought it wouldn't be terrible but then five minutes in I realised the screenwriter thinks slapstick humour is funny and I had to face the fact that this was going to suck.
The cameos make this better for me.
I dunno this movie made me happy
I will never hide the fact that I have a soft spot for rom-com's, yet most are sub-par, predictable and cliché. So, it is nice when you find something, that is a little bit different. 'Friends with Benefits' is charming, cheeky and playful, and even thought it falls into the majority of cliché's, it plays up to them, and embraces them.
With one of the best opening double break-up's of cinematic history, we are introduced to our eponymous duo; Dylan (Timberlake) and Jamie (Kunis). A couple, that (yawn) should be together for all intents and purposes, yet cannot see it for themselves. It has virtually every line in the book represented. Timberlake is the closed off alpha male, with a…
This movie should be so much better than it is with the talent attached to it. Such a typical unlikely lovers get together. The only twist is that sex is in the equation before feelings start showing. Good idea, poor execution.
i can tell you with certain that this is the best movie EVER, EVEEEEEER.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE MORE THAN I LOVE MYSELF,
"I really have to stop buying into this bullshit Hollywood cliche of true love."
Believing in a "true love" means believing that no other forms of love exist - and that's not true: there's friendship; there's family; and, for the luckiest bastards, there's a friend that becomes part of the family and who you can throw at the wall, anytime!
I mean.. You can throw at the wall whoever you want, but.. [let's say this in a Nicholas Sparks way].. not everyone will help you rebuild the house if it collapses. [wow.] [I'll so take note of this!]
Taking recommendations of all kinds of films to watch, feel like something different!
because we live in a post-meg-ryan's-career dystopian wasteland
and also just because they're rare
