Sony Pictures' July comedy Friends With Benefits explores what happens when two attractive friends (Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis) decide to see if they can transfer their friendship into a physical relationship without the emotional burdens that come with it. If that sounds familiar to you, that's because it's the exact same plot as Paramount Pictures' romantic comedy No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman.
This wouldn't be the first time two seemingly identical movies were made by different studios, but, besides storyline, are the two movies that similar? The two movies are tested in a mash-up trailer by Blind Movie Critic (via Entertainment Weekly) that shows the similarities go beyond the plot, and include supporting characters, emotional arcs, jokes, and even camera angles. watch the mash-up trailer >> Posted 07.02.11 by Ryan
