Although it is obvious where this film is going from the first scene they have together, it has its funnier moments. I think Woody Harrelson was the best of the supporting actors in his role as the gay sports writer.
Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) think it's going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe. They so... read more

This movie tries to make 1000 jokes and about 10 or 15 of them land. It also complains about rom-coms yet follows the exact formula for one. Will Gluck tries to play that "self-aware" card to distinguish his movies, but it is pretty easy to see right through it. Their are a handf...

Friends with Benefit
This movie can be fun at times, a little boring on the other, but overall I enjoyed it. It beat my expectations. Surely one of those that catch you by surprise.
The movie has the same story of two friends that decided to have sex without...

Dylan: Why do women think the only way to get men to do what they want is to manipulate them?
The first thing that is clear about this movie, is that you've seen these events before. You know that going in. We actually saw it earlier in the year with No Strings Attached, and do...
