Movie Review Monday: Friends with Benefits
From IMDB: Jamie (Mila Kunis) is a New York head-hunter trying to sign Los Angeles-based Dylan (Justin Timberlake) for her client. When he takes the job and makes the move, they quickly become friends. Their friendship turns into a friendship with benefits, but with Jamie’s emotionally damaged past and Dylan’s history of being emotionally unavailable, they have to try to not fall for each other the way Hollywood romantic comedies dictate. Written by napierslogs
Jamie and Dylan, on opposite coasts, break up with their lovers: each separately vows to stay out of emotional entanglements. So when Jamie recruits Dylan to run GQ’s art department in NYC – and she’s the only person he knows in Manhattan – they decide to be friends with sexual benefits. It works well until Jamie meets a pediatric cardiologist who just might be a match, and Dylan invites her to come home with him to LA for Thanksgiving. He may be jealous of the doc, she may be sending new vibes in Dylan’s direction, but can either see the signals? And, is it inevitable that life imitates art? Written by <email@example.com>
I REALLY liked this movie. It was fun and funny. And had Justin Timberlake. So this redeems him from the excuse of a movie that was Bad Teacher. The banter between Justin and MIla was well-timed and you could tell they were having a lot of fun. I also thought it had some great music in it. It is a great girls, fun, Friday night flick.
My rating: 3 Gummies
