Friends with Benefits finally succumbs to the same romcom clichés it mocks, but the sappy ending doesn't entirely spoil what's gone before... it gets the balance right between raunchiness and sweetness.
Hugely enjoyable and frequently funny, this gets everything right that the similarly themed No Strings Attached got wrong, thanks to a witty script, assured direction, believable characters and smoking hot chemistry between its two leads.
This coasts along just fine thanks to charm and comical interludes, but it fails to deliver the sassy story it promises. Fine for a romantic comedy, but an inferior follow up to director Gluck's edgier Easy A.
