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

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

Yeah, we all know the formula. But when it works and the chemistry is just right, we love seeing exactly what we expect and hope for.

Kunis and Timberlake are pitch perfect in Friends With Benefits, a predictable, yet extremely accessible tale of love, sex and complications.

Timberlake and Kunis are fearless, funny, and just incredibly likable.

The inherent likability of the two leads alone elevates this above the average comedy. Their willingness-especially Timberlake's-to appear foolish doesn't hurt either.

If it displayed more courage, this could have been a fascinating modern American movie. Instead it's a smart but still rather ordinary comedy that is entertaining but not ground-breaking.

It's smart, sexy and moderately amusing.
September 10, 2011
Gluck has given us a story with a really smart and sassy burst of contemporary relationship strife that stealthily draws you into the Timberland-Kunis magnetism.

Good clean fun.

Daily Mirror (UK)

At the start, the film is clever enough to send up the whole rom-com formula with Dylan and Jamie neatly mocking the genre's conventions as they watch a video of Sleepless In Seattle.

Friends With Benefits almost gets away with the double standards because Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are such an attractive pairing.
Charlotte O'Sullivan
London Evening Standard
September 9, 2011
These smart actors are deconstructing their own glamour and seem far more scrumptious as a result.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

Friends With Benefits has some genuine pleasures to offer.

Consider our faith in Hollywood romance restored. For now.

The script crackles with more electricity than we've come to expect from this genre of late.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

September 7, 2011
Not quite the whip smart dissection of the genre that it wants to be, but there are plenty of decent laughs.

The chemistry between Kunis and her co-star Justin Timberlake is electric.
