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!
