Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Anyone who has ever seen a romantic comedy before knows where this one is going."
‑ Leah Rozen, TheWrap
"Fast-paced and fabulously fake, Friends With Benefits is the Red Bull of romantic comedies, unapologetically delivering a hyperactive, synthetic buzz."
‑ Logan Hill, New York Magazine/Vulture
"An abominable beast of a film."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Trespass
"Yeah, we all know the formula. But when it works and the chemistry is just right, we love seeing exactly what we expect and hope for."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Timberlake and Kunis are fearless, funny, and just incredibly likable."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The chemistry between Kunis and her co-star Justin Timberlake is electric."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"Kunis and Timberlake achieve the trickier feat of looking just as happy hanging out as they do sucking face, and when the clichés inevitably come rolling in, they feel earned rather than like a cop-out."
‑ Alison Willmore, Time Out New York
"A smart romantic comedy that both mocks and features romantic clichés."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Kunis and Timberlake are pitch perfect in Friends With Benefits, a predictable, yet extremely accessible tale of love, sex and complications."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"The inherent likability of the two leads alone elevates this above the average comedy. Their willingness-especially Timberlake's-to appear foolish doesn't hurt either."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"It's one of those rare made-in-Hollywood couplings that transcends the ordinary stuff of movies, like plot and sense and credibility."
‑ Greg Quill, Toronto Star
"Friends with Benefits is fast, allusive, urban, glamorous -- clearly the Zeitgeist winner of the summer."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"It doesn't help, either, that both Timberlake and Kunis are charming yet utterly bland in their respective roles..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is just another forgettable by-the-numbers romantic-comedy that ends up going nowhere unexpected."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"If it displayed more courage, this could have been a fascinating modern American movie. Instead it's a smart but still rather ordinary comedy that is entertaining but not ground-breaking."
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Baltic Times
