Nudity: Strategic Mila Kunis and Justin nudity, Cake Batter Boobs.
I know that this is supposedly the same movie as No Strings Attached that came out a few months ago, but this one has Justin Timberlake in it. Actually it does feel like a better, sexier, funnier FWB movie. I didn’t feel like I was being conned into seeing the same movie with different stars in it.
Everything felt a little bit smarter in Friends With Benefits, including the format, which I think tried to at least a little, throw the romcom format out the window. I don’t know if it was that successful at doing so, but it was a nice try. It really felt like Mila and Justin clicked in this movie and that is where I think it shines the best. Chemistry between the main characters is very important and these two just worked together. Especially in the sex scenes which for leaving out the nipples and bits were very sexy and really made for nice steamy rated R fun. Woody Harrelson was a fun addition and a couple of scenes by Shawn White are very fun.
We can’t put down a good romantic comedy just because it is a romantic comedy when they come around and this is one of the good ones. So if you are a guy and avoiding these for the right moment with the lady friend. This is the one to jump on board with. It is well worth the date night movie price and getting to see Mila Kunis mostly naked is totally worth it.
