You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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…
comedy drama romance and a lottle of life
It makes fun of the typical romantic comedies, but ultimately it's just a typical romantic comedy. Not a bad one, but no surprises here.
Gli scopamici, che sono un po' i "fidanzatini" di questo secolo, scopano finchè non si amano. Eh sì, sempre la solita solfa.
E un po' come Don Jon si puntava su un elemento insolito all'interno della relazione (in Don Jon la masturbazione, qua appunto l'iniziale scopamicizia) per urlare alla "commedia dell'anno", quella che "non ti aspetti".
Però invero si ride abbastanza, Mila Kunis è figa (e presumo lo sia anche Timberlake), i due attori insieme funzionano.
Dimenticabile ma guardabile.
A pretty good comedy about two attractive people wanting to have sex without all of the strings attached. Mila Kunis plays Jamie, a head-hunter for advertising firms. Her latest project is trying to get Dylan (Justin Timberlake), a deal with GQ. He travels to NYC from LA and meets with Jamie. She sells him on the city and job and Dylan decides to move out to NYC and take the GQ job. The two strike it off and become good friends. After time their relationship jumps to the next level, but they decide to stay friends with no emotions allowed. Overtime the relationship becomes symbiotic though and they both realize that emotions are impossible to shut off. Friends With Benefits is a fun little ditty with Justin and Mila selling a believable relationship with true ups and downs that most of us have experienced.
Haters gonna hate. Woody Harrelson=yes.
This movie really thinks it's so superior? A romantic comedy that constantly mocks romantic comedies, while of course simultaneously adhering to all the same tropes. It even creates its own in-universe straw-man in the form of an awful film that the characters watch, as if to say, "Hey, at least our movie is better than this shit, right?" (Way to set the bar REAL low.) Look, if you're going to have your rom-com measure itself against other rom-coms, they should be the great ones. It Happened One Night. Roman Holiday. Manhattan. These are the movies that modern romantic comedies should be trying to measure up to. And this smug hypocrisy comes nowhere close.
Film #2 of Scavenger Hunt 17 - August 2016
Task #7 : A singer is acting in this film, which is not a musical
Pleasantly surprised by this movie. I was expecting something quite bad to be honest, but the main cast makes the film very enjoyable. It doesn't take itself too seriously and mocks the usual clichés of romantic comedies, while inevitably falling back in the same clichés, but with a little more humour and irony. Even though the plot is not a big surprise, I found the characters interesting and the music good. A quite good classic rom-com.
Original characters but typical plot.
Okay, so this is admittedly a rewatch... but I swear I haven't seen it since it first came out and really, five years? For a forgettable romcom? Barely counts! Interestingly, though, I came away from viewing number two with about the same vibes as I remember having post-first-watch. That is - super cute!! But doesn't quite hit the romcom spot, even for me, a Seasoned Romcom Pro.
Now, I'll watch basically anything upbeat with Mila, and on top of her being a ray of sunshine, she and JT had fab chemistry. It's a cute plot in a total fanfic trope kind of way. But like... eh. Eh. A lot of…
