Friends With Benefits (2011) - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

Top Critic

Aside from boasting an impressive catalog of Sony products, "Friends With Benefits" has little else on offer.

Critic's Notebook

A sexy, funny and very familiar picture carried by an effervescent atmosphere and some phenomenal chemistry between these two stars.

The Improper Bostonian

An abominable beast of a film.

Full Review… | September 8, 2013

A smart romantic comedy that both mocks and features romantic clichés.

Big Hollywood

It doesn't help, either, that both Timberlake and Kunis are charming yet utterly bland in their respective roles...

Audience Reviews for Friends With Benefits

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).

Super Reviewer

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.

Red Lats

Super Reviewer

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.
