Product Description

At a time when mainstream comedy has been overtaken by rambling, pleasingly sloppy Judd Apatow-type improv-fests, director Will Gluck has been quietly doing his part to remind folks that sticking to the script and having a destination in mind can be fun, too. Much like his earlier Easy A, Friends with Benefits is a clever, just-this-side-of-painfully-hip relationship comedy that knows when to linger over a punch line and when not to break stride. A few minor speed bumps aside (filmmakers: can we can it with the musical montages, already?), it goes down extremely easy. The story in a nutshell: frustrated by the lack of viable dating options in their vicinity, two platonic friends (Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake) decide to embark on a casual, no-strings-attached physical relationship. However, as a briefly glimpsed clip from Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice foreshadows, things don't stay simple for very long. As opposed to the standard PG-13 rom com, things get surprisingly raunchy here, but organically so, with the slight snafus and briefly major embarrassments that should ring true to most relationship veterans. As in Easy A, Gluck has assembled a fantastically game supporting cast, including Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman, and especially the great Richard Jenkins and Patricia Clarkson as two vastly different parental figures, but it's really the two leads' show. Whether arguing the virtues of the band Kriss Kross or engaging in activities unprintable on an all-ages website, Timberlake and Kunis display the snappy back-and-forth of a classic cinematic coupling. When they're cooking, you don't want to be anywhere else. --Andrew Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not what you think! March 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I saw this movie advertised I thought it was going to be cheesy, dirty, and like all the others. It so was not! Yes, it has a lot of naughty in it, but actually it's hilarious! Justin and Mila work so well together, it isn't hard to believe their relationship. Every time I see it, I laugh. It's definitely one of the best romantic comedies that has come out lately, and one of my all time favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars chick flick that's safe for guys to view April 24 2012
By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Yes, this is a rom-com but not your typical one. It has quick-witted snappy dialogue you can imagine you and your friends would actually say and not just a series of "oh, aren't we clever" one-liners. In other words, it takes place in an adult world where people have actual lives (and jobs!) and have actual conversations between all the sex.

The chemistry between Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake is perfect. The story also makes sense especially when you get the full picture of their family backgrounds. The supporting cast could have been gratuitous but isn't and Woody Harrelson steals the show as a foulmouthed gay sports editor at GQ. Richard "No Pants" Jenkins takes another turn as one of the most underrated actors around as Timberman's Alzheimery dad. Dharma Elfman plays Justin's sis. Kunis's mom is played by the always terrific Patricia Clarkson who nails the hippy dippy mom role to a tie-dye T. Gratuitous Emma Stone is classic in her lone scene. Gratuitous Andy Samberg as well in this.

The extras are nothing to write home about but the movie stands well enough on its own to be worthy of viewing. Plus I have two words that send this movie over the top: flash mob. Watch and you'll see what I mean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, yet underrated. March 13 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film comes just a few months after ''No Strings Attached'' with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. The subject is very familiar but much more interresting and entertaining. This is what we are looking for. Justin Timberlake & Mila Kunis have such a chemistry, you want to see them together in this film. The supporting cast is also very good with Patricia Clarkson, Jenna Elfman, Bryan Greenberg but it's Richard Jenkins that really shines as the father of Justin Timberlake who's affect by Alzheimer's disease and it is really the dramatic turn in this movie. Really, Jenkins is playing every films like he's worthy of an oscar and this one is no different. I buy it at a good price and you should really give it a try as it is a strong movie !!

Two friends (Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis), who have each just been dumped, decide to enter a sexual relationship together with no strings attached. Of course things quickly become much more complicated and their friendship is put to the test.

While the premise of the film is as old as the hills (who could forget Jerry and Elaine attempting the very same thing?), the two likable leads are able to carry the film for the most part and spout some pretty raunchy one-liners that provide a few solid laughs. Anyone who has watched Timberlake’s SNL appearances knows that he has great comedic timing and I find Kunis pretty funny and likable in anything she does. Adding to the fun of the film is a good supporting cast and some celeb cameos as well. Woody Harrelson stands out in his role as JT’s over-the-top gay co-worker.

Friends with Benefits features great video & audio quality and the typical assortment of romantic comedy special features. Included are an audio commentary with writer/director Will Gluck and actors Timberlake and Kunis, a pop-up trivia track, deleted scenes (9 min), blooper reel (7 min), and two behind-the-scenes featurettes (totaling about 12 min).

While the movie does have a fun vibe, it doesn’t really offer up anything new in the romantic comedy department. Timberlake and Kunis are both sexy and funny and share a believable chemistry together. There are also some funny bits throughout. Fans of the genre or of the film’s two talented leads will probably want to pick this one up for their collections, and for everyone else, it would make for a fun rental.
