Just Friends Reviews

Page 1 of 6
Joshua Starnes

Not particularly original, Just Friends works largely due to Reynolds' screen charisma and comic timing, but it does work, and works well.

Tim Grierson

Despite a rich premise, Just Friends ultimately fails to live up to its early potential, settling into broad comedy that shortchanges the romantic possibilities.

No one will be surprised by the plot machinations that ensue, but the film is saved from utter tedium thanks to a relatively intelligent screenplay and the amiability of the leads.

Um bom conceito (e não estou dizendo que este é bom) só funciona quando amparado por um bom roteiro. E definitivamente não é isto que ocorre aqui.

Every single person operates with the maturity and common sense of a dog chasing its tail. Into a tree.

Bursting at the seams with lashings of heart, this is comedy at its broadest, with larger-than-life situations, a smartly sharp script and knock-out performances from an instantly likeable cast.

Reynolds' brand of sarcastic humour suits his part well, whilst Smart is as adorable here as she was in The Butterfly Effect.

Reynolds and kooky sidekick Faris carry a weak script.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Just Friends is sweet and mostly pleasant to pass the time with...but there's little justification to enter into a serious engagement with it.

One day, Ryan Reynolds will land in a film that makes full use of his talent for conveying quiet, wide-eyed mischievousness.

The film feels just a few degrees left of sanity.

Reynolds and especially the charming Smart give the movie the kind of heart one would not expect...

Although it's often hilarious, it's far too hyperactive to actually connect with us.

With Reynolds mugging and rolling his eyes from coast to coast, this friendly teen frolic doesn't need enemies.

Despite a few bone-tickling moments, the romantic comedy Just Friends is, well, just OK.

Maybe in this case, Chris and Jamie just being friends wasn't such a bad idea.
