Consensus: Friends with Benefits adds nothing new to its well-worn rom-com formula, but the chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis is almost enough to carry the movie by itself.

The chemistry between Kunis and her co-star Justin Timberlake is electric.

Although it is obvious where this film is going from the first scene they have together, it has its funnier moments. I think Woody Harrelson was the best of… More

Perfectly decent rom-com. The leads were appealing and Patricia Clarkson and Richard Jenkins always bring it.
Candy Rose
Funny rom com. Two different people get dumped and they make a deal to become friends with benefits. But the inevitable happens they get emotionally closer.… More

Surprising romcom buoyed to nearly fresh with snappy, self aware, cheeky dialogue as well as the chemistry of its savvy leads. New York and L.A. put in scenic,… More
