‘Friends with Benefits' Has Some Benefits
Ashton Kutcher and the girl on everyone’s minds, Natalie Por…Oh, oh wait. How could I get No Strings Attached from earlier this year confused with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis’ Friends With Benefits? Yes, they’re the same plot; extremely attractive friends who decide sex is possible without emotional commitment and then are met with a whirlwind of romantic comedy clichés. But this one has a girl from That 70’s Show and the other …

As engaging as a one-night stand, a decent one.
Dating is complicated. The scene today can be so cold and callous that most people in it are forced to disengage emotionally from it in order to survive.

Yes, this is the same story as that Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman flick, No Strings Attached. I just like the chemistry and acting of JT/Mila Kunis much better.

Star Rating:         Although the January release of Ivan Reitman’s No Strings Attached was nothing special, it had just enough for me to give it a passing grade. We now have Will Gluck’s Friends with Benefits, and although it’s founded on the exact same premise – a man and a woman having a go at casual sex – there’s no question in my mind which of the two films is superior. Here is an intelligent, perfectly cast romantic comedy that …

If you find yourself walking to the theater and not wanting to see a superhero movie, you may turn to the romantic comedy Friends With Benefits and think to yourself I've already seen this movie. While the premise is exactly the same as No Strings Attached, FWB seems to benefit from having taken the extra time to develop their writing and the chemistry between the two leads. It is still the same movie but this version of friends who just want the physical without all the …
