These types of movies are going to keep coming out and there's just nothing we can do do about it.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
September 19, 2012
This is just another forgettable by-the-numbers romantic-comedy that ends up going nowhere unexpected.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 29, 2011
All of these quirky details felt like independent pieces crammed together for the sake of edginess.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 21, 2011
This hip romantic comedy wants you to know that it's not just an average romcom. It is aware that it's a romantic comedy and acknowledges and mocks the convention of that genre - even as it falls back on them time and again.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Kunis and Timberlake are winningly comfortable with one another, even if the movie isn't always comfortable with itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10

An abominable beast of a film.

Friends with Benefits may not want to admit it, but making a successful rom-com would seem to be harder than it looks.

Aside from boasting an impressive catalog of Sony products, "Friends With Benefits" has little else on offer.
September 2, 2011
In acts two and three it becomes more predictable in each of the ideals it berates in act one, and not in a clever or ironic way; Katherine Heigl may as well have taken on the lead role.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 21, 2011
In the world of the contemporary Hollywood romantic comedy, it is in fact not possible for two straight BFFs of the opposite sex to sleep together and not fall in love.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 8, 2011
Ultimately, it's as conventional as the romantic-comedies it mocks. Still, fans of the stars should get satisfaction.

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis make an attractive couple, but that's the best that can be said for this rom-com that's just as superficial as the clichés it ridicules.
July 21, 2011
Even with all their huffing and puffing, this very salty, often funny affair is never quite as satisfying as it should be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

A more accurate title for Friends with Benefits would be Pretty People Trying Way Too Hard For Our Amusement.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 19, 2011
Friends With Benefits talks like an adult but acts like a teen. The clash between perky style and verbally risque content detracts from the appeal of a strong cast led by Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.
July 20, 2011
A screenplay of cheats and unpleasantries, with director Gluck looking to nudity from Timberlake to keep the target demographic content, using gratuitous rear end shots to deflect attention away from a rotten motion picture.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Though Friends with Benefits eventually loses that battle against clichés, that fight is the most interesting thing about the movie by far.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Timberlake and Kunis definitely bring sexy back to a tired formula. If only the movie had been worthy of their expertly playful pairing.

You can tell this romantic comedy thinks it's a cut above from the way it keeps sniggering at the feebleness of other romantic comedies -- a risky strategy, as it turns out.
