Critic Reviews for Friends with Benefits: Season 1

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Not to say it's awful, but it doesn't have enough of the goods to have any real staying power. "Goods" being good characters, good jokes, and good plots.

There is no pretending here: Friends with Benefits is getting buried. It's a deserved fate, as Neustadter and Weber failed to establish any of the necessary characteristics of a successful sitcom in the pilot.
