I found myself laughing out loud through much of this movie. Yes, it's predictable...yes, it's a corny, romantic comedy...and no, I don't care if it was just like some other movie. From the perspecitive of sheer entertainment, my wife and I had a great time at this film. JT surprised me...I thought he and Mila Kunis had great chemistry onscreen. And Woody Harrellson just cracked me up in every scene he was in.
Word of warning though. I was surprised that some people were bringing their younger children to the movie. Let's just say this movie has very "adult themes". If you don't want to have to try and explain the finer points of oral sex to your 11 year old...I would suggest leaving them at home! ;)

Actually quite a pleasant surprise. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake have great chemistry and you really believe them as both friends and as a couple. Can't ignore the fact that this movie came out shortly after the same premise with bigger-name actors, but everything about Friends with Benefits is smarter: the story, the characters, the comedy (the witty banter, not the sex humor). The movie does poke fun at a lot of romantic comedies but there are several elements that don't do anything different (ex. taking the boat to get back into the city, the helicopter rescue... not necessary) but there are many other moments that are interesting. Woody Harrelson and Patricia Clarkson are also fantastic. All in all, a solid romantic-comedy.

I have watched every movie that has came out this year and feel this movie is one of the funniest movies since Bridesmaids. But funnier. I know there are several movies that have had similar story plots but this is worth seeing more than once. It's for adults for sure!
