November 23, 2005
As romantic comedies go, Just Friends is just a lunch date. And everybody knows there's no kiss at the end of a lunch date.

November 25, 2005
With fine performers and decent dialogue creating a concrete foundation, it's a shame inane smacks and slaps ultimately make for a rickety flick.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

After watching a movie like Just Friends, I hurry home from the theater and take a shower so I can wash away the stink of the experience.

November 22, 2005
Much humiliation and mayhem, all of it either teeth-grindingly tedious, heart-sinkingly crude, or just plain boring, often all three at once.

November 17, 2005
Characters switch personalities in midscene, forget slights, ignore the obvious, abandon goals and betray family and friends just because the script demands it. No motivation required.
July 23, 2008
Despite a rich premise, Just Friends ultimately fails to live up to its early potential, settling into broad comedy that shortchanges the romantic possibilities.

Just Friends is just stupid.
November 22, 2005
Most of the movie's humor involves placing [Reynolds] in humiliating or painful situations and letting the contusions fly. That's worth some laughs but not nearly as many as the movie thinks.

December 1, 2005
Despite a few bone-tickling moments, the romantic comedy Just Friends is, well, just OK.

November 23, 2005
Just Friends shows that a lifeless idea can rise up out of its script crypt and put a stranglehold on 2,000-plus screens.

Every single person operates with the maturity and common sense of a dog chasing its tail. Into a tree.

Ryan Reynolds is starting to be like that boyfriend or girlfriend you keep believing in, but keeps disappointing you.

Just bad.

June 9, 2006
Um bom conceito (e não estou dizendo que este é bom) só funciona quando amparado por um bom roteiro. E definitivamente não é isto que ocorre aqui.

During the credits, Reynolds is again shown in the fat suit while singing a power ballad, reminding us all how funny Just Friends could have been.

The movie too often withers under a barrage of predictable gags, which are doled out in uneven slices.

November 23, 2005
After peaking with the unsurpassable glories of 2003's Bad Santa, the humbug holiday genre may be getting run into the ground.

November 28, 2005
Just Friends hangs its crude, clobbering sense of humor on a dubious theory.
