Product Description

Dylan (Justin Timberlake) is done with relationships. Jamie (Mila Kunis) decides to stop buying into the Hollywood clichés of true love. When the two become friends they decide to try something new and take advantage of their mutual attraction – but without any emotional attachment. Physical pleasure without the entanglements. Sounds easy enough for two logical adults, right? Not so much. They soon realize romantic comedy stereotypes might exist for a reason.

From Amazon.co.uk

At a time when mainstream comedy has been overtaken by rambling, pleasingly sloppy Judd Apatow-type improv-fests, director Will Gluck has been quietly doing his part to remind folks that sticking to the script and having a destination in mind can be fun, too. Much like his earlier Easy A, Friends with Benefits is a clever, just-this-side-of-painfully-hip relationship comedy that knows when to linger over a punch line and when not to break stride. A few minor speed bumps aside (filmmakers: can we can it with the musical montages, already?), it goes down extremely easy. The story in a nutshell: frustrated by the lack of viable dating options in their vicinity, two platonic friends (Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake) decide to embark on a casual, no-strings-attached physical relationship. However, as a briefly glimpsed clip from Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice foreshadows, things don't stay simple for very long. As opposed to the standard PG-13 rom com, things get surprisingly raunchy here, but organically so, with the slight snafus and briefly major embarrassments that should ring true to most relationship veterans. As in Easy A, Gluck has assembled a fantastically game supporting cast, including Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman, and especially the great Richard Jenkins and Patricia Clarkson as two vastly different parental figures, but it's really the two leads' show. Whether arguing the virtues of the band Kriss Kross or engaging in activities unprintable on an all-ages website, Timberlake and Kunis display the snappy back-and-forth of a classic cinematic coupling. When they're cooking, you don't want to be anywhere else. --Andrew Wright

I'm going to assume that we all know by now that this is a film that eventually finishes with a fairly typical rom-com ending. But come on, if you seriously think that it shouldn't end this way, ask yourself how you would rather it ended. It is the journey that this film takes getting there that makes this such an enjoyable flick.
The premise is simple - Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) decide that adding sex to their relationship is a great idea because its just physical. Eventually, they decide mutually to stop but remain friends and as the film progresses further we get to know them, and their families, and all their problems.
The fact is that there are not many movies I have enjoyed more than this, and this romcom just felt streets ahead of many others I have watched - the acting is good and it was something that a lot of romcoms aren't - it was very funny. Timberlake held his own with Kunis, and the supporting cast of Woody Harrelson (Tommy, the gay GQ sports editor), Patricia Clarkson (Lorna, Jamie's mum) and Richard Jenkins, who plays Dylan's father, provided some really good scenes (my favourite being the scenes between Dylan and his dad).
The sex scenes were well written, well acted, and well directed, managing to be fairly raunchy without going over the top. The dialogue was also really well written, and it was fun to watch Kunis and Timberlake play off eachother throughout the movie. Highly recommended.

Jamie and Dylan, on opposite coasts, break up with their lovers: each separately vows to stay out of emotional entanglements.

So when Jamie recruits Dylan to run GQ's art department in NYC - and she's the only person he knows in Manhattan - they decide to be friends with sexual benefits.

It works well until Jamie meets a paediatric cardiologist who just might be a match, and Dylan invites her to come home with him to LA for Thanksgiving.

He may be jealous of the doc, she may be sending new vibes in Dylan's direction, but can either see the signals?....

The first thing that really grabbed me about this movie is the fact that Timberlake is very good, and really shows that he could have a good career in these sort of movies.

While the story is essentially 'No Strings Attached' this feels a little more human, whereas that one relied on the star power of the two leads.

The two stars have a very good chemistry right from the start, which makes the film that little more believable, and for once, their isn't an irritating best friend (we have the damaged parents in this, which do provide a very entertaining sub-plot from both perspectives).

Sadly the film is predictable and becomes a bit of a chore at the end with something straight from the teenage Fisher KIng, but otherwise, it's smutty, good stuff, with a good heart.

I'm not a rom-com fan, so I didn't have high hopes for this movie but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was one of the best movies I've seen in quite some time.

The formula is a familiar one - boy meets girl, both are losers in love (despite being incredibly attractive!), Initially they are just friends, but this soon turns into friends with (sexual) benefits and of course it'll surprise no one that that soon turns into love, much to the surprise of them both. None of this is particularly surprising and the predictable nature of it is usually why I dislike rom-coms but what makes this one different is the comedy - it's really very good! Throughout the movie there's a scattering of genius comedy moments.

The lead characters (Timberlake & Kunis) are both very well developed and unlike most rom-coms it doesn't just focus on their love life, it focuses on their families and what makes them tick psychologically. The script is witting, funny and charming and you end up loving both characters by the end of the movie. Throw in a great supporting cast, with the likes of Woody Harrelson, a sports writer with a fixation on all things gay and the casting is just great.

Another thing worthy of a mention is the great soundtrack - there's some great songs used throughout the movie (Semisonic - Closing time etc) which really make it what it is.

For once I agree with one of the quotations of the box - this one really is "Sexy. Funny. Clever" - give it a go!

A lot of time a lack of chemistry between the main characters in a romcom will leave a movie down, they just aren't believable in their roles and can seem wooden and stiff, however Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis change this trend as it's their on screen chemistry that makes this movie what it is, very enjoyable.

The main synopsis of the movie is that both Timberlake and Kunis are unlucky in love and Timberlake moves from L.A to New York where Kunis lands him a job at GQ, the two quickly become good friends. The movie is fast paced and both Kunis and Timberlake are perfect for their roles, there is plenty of laughs a long the way and features a strong supporting cast. Woody Harrelson is Hilarious in his role as Tommy, the head sports writer for GQ who happens to be gay and is convinced that Timberlake is also gay. Patricia Clarkson plays Kunis hippy loving mother who can't recall what nationality Kunis dad is. Richard Jenkins plays Timberlake's dad who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Emma Stone(who could probably have done a good job playing Kunis role if chosen) has a very small role as Timberlakes girlfriend who happens to be obsessed with John Mayer!

While the movie never strays too far from the usual romcom rules it is a funny movie that is well held together by it's lead characters.
