  • Goes a long way in bringing sexy back to a soggy genre, benefiting greatly from the presence of its likable leads. show more

  • Every actor in Friends with Benefits, including the nearly indestructible Patricia Clarkson and Richard Jenkins, stalls out in the process of pedaling desperately to make this substandard material work. show more
