  • Their banter is fun at the start until it becomes relentless. show more

  • The takeaway on Friends With Benefits is that mores change, styles change, the rules change, and even humor changes. (There are two jokes involving apps, of all things, that are pretty funny.) But people's emotional needs remain the same from era to era. show more

  • Instead of gleaning something from real life, the great minds behind Friends With Benefits slapped their ideas together based on screwball classics, "Sleepless in Seattle" bits, and a keen analysis of Hollywood hackery. show more

    I think the movie was great, Kunis is beautiful and Timberlake is very handsome. They make the movie enjoyable to watch over and over. I do not understand how people can say they did not like it. Perhaps they are just jealous that Justin and Mila make the movie work. Alot of movies today are not worth seeing because the acting is so terrible.

    Movie was just \"OK\" Extremely predictable. I wish I woulda rented it rather than buying it because I probably ********** it again. Wait til you can rent it for a dollar.

    This movie, although having likeable actors was total ********* wasn\'t wasn\'t amusing. Personally I couldn\'t get through it and had to stop watching it. At least it was a rental. I hate drivel and tripe like this. Movies like this are an insult to anyone but imbeciles....but then why insult imbeciles?
