October 7, 2011
Anyone who has ever seen a romantic comedy before knows where this one is going.
September 9, 2011
These smart actors are deconstructing their own glamour and seem far more scrumptious as a result.
September 8, 2011
Really: no benefits to watching this.
September 8, 2011
Consider our faith in Hollywood romance restored. For now.
September 7, 2011
The chemistry between Kunis and her co-star Justin Timberlake is electric.
August 25, 2011
It's not in the Hepburn-Tracy league but it is way smarter than most entries in this field.
August 25, 2011
Perfect date movie material.
August 2, 2011
It's one of those rare made-in-Hollywood couplings that transcends the ordinary stuff of movies, like plot and sense and credibility.
August 2, 2011
Fast-paced and fabulously fake, Friends With Benefits is the Red Bull of romantic comedies, unapologetically delivering a hyperactive, synthetic buzz.
August 2, 2011
Kunis and Timberlake achieve the trickier feat of looking just as happy hanging out as they do sucking face, and when the clichs inevitably come rolling in, they feel earned rather than like a cop-out.
July 25, 2011
Friends with Benefits is fast, allusive, urban, glamorous -- clearly the Zeitgeist winner of the summer.
July 23, 2011
"Friends With Benefits" is often uproariously and profanely funny, and anchored in high-spirited performances from its central duo, who are well matched as comic foils if oddly lacking in erotic electricity.
July 22, 2011
The best romantic comedy of the year.
July 22, 2011
Friends With Benefits is a dumb, by-the-numbers romantic comedy. Yet I kept finding small things to enjoy in it, mainly because of the two hard-to-hate leads.
July 22, 2011
It succeeds, thanks to comedic chemistry between the two leads and nimble direction by Will Gluck.
July 22, 2011
Directed with quick-witted ease by Will Gluck, the [film is a] frank, frisky, even touching romantic comedy.
July 22, 2011
A witty rom-com for the smart-phone generation.
July 22, 2011
The jokes don't all work and the topical references can be irritably hipper-than-thou, but at least director and cowriter Will Gluck aims high: this is patterned on the Tracy and Hepburn comedies, albeit with a lot more skin.
July 22, 2011
Timberlake and Kunis try hard to keep this charm machine purring, and they do indeed have traces of chemistry... But their chemistry is at the service of a science project we've all seen before.
July 22, 2011
It is elevated by energetic dialogue, the sexual chemistry between the leads and the fact that the miscommunication that keeps bliss at bay - there's always one in a rom-com, and usually it is annoyingly unbelievable - is plausible.
