Not particularly original, Just Friends works largely due to Reynolds' screen charisma and comic timing, but it does work, and works well.

Embraces its silliness and still comes out a mostly hilarious experience...

No one will be surprised by the plot machinations that ensue, but the film is saved from utter tedium thanks to a relatively intelligent screenplay and the amiability of the leads.

Bursting at the seams with lashings of heart, this is comedy at its broadest, with larger-than-life situations, a smartly sharp script and knock-out performances from an instantly likeable cast.

Reynolds' brand of sarcastic humour suits his part well, whilst Smart is as adorable here as she was in The Butterfly Effect.

Reynolds and especially the charming Smart give the movie the kind of heart one would not expect...

Although it's often hilarious, it's far too hyperactive to actually connect with us.

This is a stupid comedy and you'll probably be embarrassed by how much you laugh.

The best thing about Just Friends is that it never pretends to be anything other than a crass, unsophisticated youth comedy.

... while the ending might be a foregone conclusion, getting there involves just enough slapstick manful idiocy to keep the humor moving at a clip.

A barbed romantic comedy with a distinct debt to the Farrelly brothers' gross-out-plus-sentimentality formula, Just Friends is a welcome antidote to the usual seasonal sweetness.

[D]espite revisiting every romantic comedy archetype ever conceived, Just Friends still manages to entertain.

Despite the fact that we are watching Reynolds do the same schtick yet again, director Roger Kumble never lets him outlast a joke or take a gimmick too far.
