Movie reviews for Friends with Benefits
||Niels Risgaard Hansen:
|Acceptable romantic comedy.
It starts out a bit awkward with the break up scenes, which could have been quite clever if executed better, but somehow just becomes awkward. That basically pulls the movie down below average from the beginning, but after a solid performance only hindered by a small series of lame events, it actually turns out acceptable.
People keep wishing that Justin Timberlake would return to making music. I will not say that his acting is poor, but I do think he is better at making music - and I don't even like his type of music.
This is the most sexy role I have seen Mila Kunis in, and she does a good job both at being sexy and at acting.
This romantic comedy is not sugar sweet (most of the time anyway), and actually have a few funny moments to it too. So if you disregard the lame incidents of the awkward start it is actually a rather decent romantic comedy.
Watch it with your significant other or a friend of the opposite sex whom you would like to get in bed with.
