Consensus: There are moments of mirth in this overly broad comedy, but mostly, Just Friends is just not that funny.

Just Friends is just stupid.

... while the ending might be a foregone conclusion, getting there involves just enough slapstick manful idiocy to keep the humor moving at a clip.

Despite a rich premise, Just Friends ultimately fails to live up to its early potential, settling into broad comedy that shortchanges the romantic possibilities.

Toronto Star

Just Friends is part Farrelly Brothers and part Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, all wrapped together to deliver gross-out gags in bizarrely random and rapid-fire fashion, with zero intent to develop sustainable plot or character.

Globe and Mail

A barbed romantic comedy with a distinct debt to the Farrelly brothers' gross-out-plus-sentimentality formula, Just Friends is a welcome antidote to the usual seasonal sweetness.

Film Journal International

No one will be surprised by the plot machinations that ensue, but the film is saved from utter tedium thanks to a relatively intelligent screenplay and the amiability of the leads.

Just Friends hangs its crude, clobbering sense of humor on a dubious theory.

Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

Not particularly original, Just Friends works largely due to Reynolds' screen charisma and comic timing, but it does work, and works well.

Um bom conceito (e não estou dizendo que este é bom) só funciona quando amparado por um bom roteiro. E definitivamente não é isto que ocorre aqui.

It was okay. Doesn't have anything new to talk about actually.

The main problem with this as a romantic comedy is that Chris is such an ass you don't want to see him with Jamie. I do like this - Amy Smart is a good… More

Hilarious! Ryan Reynolds as an obese teenager makes the film. As does Anna Faris and her outstanding comedy performances. Crazy woman! A must see!

Just Friends is a fairly comedy that exceeded my expectations a bit. If you're looking for a fun comedy, then this is your film. Just Friends is not a… More
