Friends With Benefits (2011)


Critic Consensus: Friends with Benefits adds nothing new to its well-worn rom-com formula, but the chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis is almost enough to carry the movie by itself.

It's one of those rare made-in-Hollywood couplings that transcends the ordinary stuff of movies, like plot and sense and credibility.

Aug 2, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Fast-paced and fabulously fake, Friends With Benefits is the Red Bull of romantic comedies, unapologetically delivering a hyperactive, synthetic buzz.

Aug 2, 2011 | Full Review…

Kunis and Timberlake achieve the trickier feat of looking just as happy hanging out as they do sucking face, and when the clichés inevitably come rolling in, they feel earned rather than like a cop-out.

Audience Reviews for Friends With Benefits

All of the clichés you'd expect in a romcom, but roughly covered over with a patina of snappy patter to make it seem as if the whole concoction is a fresh thing. The chemistry between the leads add mucho spice too.

Guess it works well if you're in a mood for something light. Although the characters pretend to be anti-cliche, the movie gradually turns out to be an ordinary rom-com with a reasonable dose of cliches (thankfully, I was in a mood of overlooking them).

Although it is obvious where this film is going from the first scene they have together, it has its funnier moments. I think Woody Harrelson was the best of the supporting actors in his role as the gay sports writer.

Funny rom com. Two different people get dumped and they make a deal to become friends with benefits. But the inevitable happens they get emotionally closer. Justin and Mila are hot. They make a cute couple.
