Run-of-the-mill romantic comedy, with fluff and feelgood aplenty. It's OK.
Friends with Benefits review
23rd July 2012
My wife and I just watched this movie and it's typical of those movies that don't make you think you've wasted your rental cost------nor does it pretend to be anything other than it is : watchable without being very good or memorable.
I've seen a few Timberlake films now , and he is not bad.
Mila Kunis, his co-star---I've never seen before---is gorgeous.
I won't forget HER :) I can't believe that her Hispanic good looks belie the fact that she has a Ukranian background (nothing against the no-doubt admirable Ukraine, but I don't imagine all its female citizens to look like Mila).
The plot is a tired one but old storylines can often be made to last forever in hundreds or even thousands of films, so I do not mind too much about the lack of originality.
This is an adult romantic comedy. It is neither good nor bad.
It does what it intends to do and watch it if you like the genre or if you are in the mood for light entertainment.
