Review:
While trying to avoid the clichés of Hollywood romantic comedies, Dylan (Timberlake) and Jamie (Kunis) soon discover however that adding the act of sex to their friendship does in fact lead to complications.

We’ve been quietly amazed by Mila Kunis’s transition from TV star to supporting actress on the big screen, and now she and JT combine their powers as they both make their leading-role debuts in director Will Gluck’s follow-up to Easy A. Both performers are effortlessly funny, and all that ho-hum talk about how 2011 is the year of the friends-with-benefits comedy is just frustrated blogger runoff. If the entire film is half as enjoyable as the trailer, this could be the yet another hugely successful R-rated comedy of the season — even if you can telegraph the ending from the concession stand. Looking forward to the photos from their Marine double date.
