Friends with Benefits Reviews
07.22.11 by reelz
Are Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis enough to finally push a rom-com into "good movie" territory?
"...at once a charming romance and a pointed satire on charming romances, a movie that relentlessly skewers the conventions of the mythic Hollywood love story while still proudly embracing them."
— Jason McKiernan, filmcritic.com
"...follows rom-com formulas as if directed on autopilot, but that's not to say it isn't fun."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A crisply contemporary, notably grown-up romantic comedy..."
— Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"...an uneven comedy that takes full advantage of the charm and palpable chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"...an infectiously smart-mouthed but uneven romantic comedy..."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Despite a pair of live wires in the leads, Friends With Benefits is just not enough."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
