Like Minded People Sex Stirling
Let's get this out of the way: The only thing that Friends With Benefits and the Ashton Kutcher - Natalie Portman flick No Strings Attached have in common is that they're both romantic comedies about friendships with casual sex. In terms of supporting characters, plot details and, yes, success as a Sweet wants real sex Hickory, the two platknic notably different.
No Strings Attachedreleased this past January, is a better, funnier film, whereas Friends With Benefits has some Fwb or platonic Colorado springs moments before getting bogged down with a spgings tone.
At the airport he's greeted by Jamie Mila Kunisthe corporate headhunter who got him the interview, and the two immediately hit it off. She sells him on NYC, he takes the job, and a beautiful, platonic friendship is born.
All is well until they watch a tacky romantic comedy together and ask why relationships have to be so complicated. They then swear on an iPad Bible that they'll have "no relationship, no emotions, just sex" and vow to remain friends no matter what.
Yeah, right. Director Will Gluck's Easy A film is at its best when Dylan and Jamie are trading sprins and hooking up — their chemistry feels real, and there are good laughs to enjoy.
Timberlake holds the screen adequately as a co-lead, but he's also helped greatly by Kunis' presence, timing and experience. His future as an actor remains bright but unproven.
If the story stayed focused on Lpatonic, Timberlake would've been better off, but unfortunately Dylan and Jamie's inevitable fight nearly turns the film into a Nicholas Sparks drama. It gets so heavy that we stop laughing and start rolling our eyes, waiting, begging for it to end.
Aside from the love-hate relationship drama, which we expect, there's also mental illness and dysfunctional family drama, which we neither expect nor want. Where did all the laughs go? Worse, some of the comedy that is written into the script just doesn't connect.
Timberlake singing Kris Kross' hit "Jump" is no doubt funnier on paper than in execution, as is having Olympic snowboard gold medalist Shaun White show up in a cameo, in which he's a jerk to Dylan. That Shaun White is cool for making fun of Fwb or platonic Colorado springs we're supposed to say.
What's also sad is that Friends With Benefits tries to spribgs fun of rom-com conventions and then subvert them, but then ends up in the same place that all rom-coms end up. It's a nice idea, but when you veer too far off course, everything is bound to crumble, and it does.I Just Want Someone To Buy Me Tattoos C
