Friends with Benefits (the movie)

image

Friends with Benefits starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis tackles the ever elusive question of can friends who have sex just be friends? In the end of course not and this movie although atypical in storyline has a typical ending.

The movie starts with the typical smoregesborg of rom-com. Boy meets girl, boy and girl become friends, boy and girl take it there and boy bails out. If the movie ended there then it would be real life but Friends with Benefits gives us the false hope that a booty call can be a knight in shining armor and the answer to our perpetual singledom (alright then). What does set this movie apart is the family element. The real life struggles of family life that make the characters more relatable and also stops you from gagging(just kidding. I love rom-coms. No I do).

All this to say that you should watch Friends with Benefits. It’s refreshing, touching, and there’s an undeniable chemistry between Timberlake and Kunis. If nothing else JT has a lot of body shots and I can’t complain about that!

Will you be watching Friends with Benefits? If you saw it, what do you think about it?

  1. I think I will pass- maybe once it’s on Netflix. The story simply doesn’t interest me… at least not enough to pay 13 dollars for a movie ticket.

  2. Kunis and Timberlake achieve the trickier feat of looking just as happy hanging out as they do sucking face, and when the clich├ęs inevitably come rolling in, they feel earned rather than like a cop-out. Good Review! Check out my site whenever you can!

  3. I never saw the movie and there’s NO WAY I’d pay good money to see it. Aren’t movie tickets like $13 these days? Plus, If anyone knows or understand Hollywood – you know they’re gonna have to give you a happy ending! As far as I’m concerned – ALL initial bones are booty calls! After the first bone-fest, you may not want to sleep with that person again – EVER!
