These types of movies are going to keep coming out and there's just nothing we can do do about it.
October 7, 2015
Aside from boasting an impressive catalog of Sony products, "Friends With Benefits" has little else on offer.
September 8, 2013
An abominable beast of a film.

It doesn't help, either, that both Timberlake and Kunis are charming yet utterly bland in their respective roles...
September 19, 2012
This is just another forgettable by-the-numbers romantic-comedy that ends up going nowhere unexpected.

If you've ever wondered why romantic comedy is in such a sorry state, watch these two appealing actors go through every false note in the book in a movie so disingenuous that the neither premise, the climax, nor the resolution ever feels remotely real.

Anyone who has ever seen a romantic comedy before knows where this one is going.

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

Sadly, the gags and the spicy dialogue aren't funny enough to make this work and it's only when Timberlake and Kunis start letting their characters' respective guards down that the film becomes more involving.

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.
September 8, 2011
A charmless re-tread of a well-worn storyline about two yuppie friends trying to embark on a sexual relationship free of commitment.
September 8, 2011
Really: no benefits to watching this.
September 8, 2011
Ultimately, it's as conventional as the romantic-comedies it mocks. Still, fans of the stars should get satisfaction.

It's perky enough, but as unlovable as Timberlake is unlovable. There's something appallingly lifeless in his smile: as though it were pulled up by hooks.

Dylan and Jamie have best friends, sounding boards so you can know what they're thinking, because if they didn't say it out loud you wouldn't be able to tell they were thinking, at all.

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.
August 5, 2011
While I agree with Kunis's character that Katherine Heigl rom-coms are awful, I also think a film needs to be a lot better than Friends with Benefits if it wants to engage in the activity of bashing rival multiplex fillers.

Timberlake and Kunis generate some chemistry, but it's mostly wasted in this R-rated bauble
July 29, 2011
Bipolar in its mood swings between coarse, graphic sex comedy and sweet aw-shucks love story...
