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.
