Friends with Benefits

Movie Rating: Constantin Xenakis

A headhunter and an artistic director decide to have sex, no strings attached.

A driven headhunter at work and a romantic at home, Jamie lures Dylan from the Los Angeles Times to a better position as the artistic director of GQ in New York. Fascinated by the energy of the Big Apple and convinced of the opportunities the position will provide, Dylan accepts the challenge. Bonding over sad stories about their respective bad luck with love, Jamie and Dylan decide to become friends with benefits...

Friends With Benefits is a pleasant surprise, thanks both to the chemistry between Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake and the strong performances of their co-stars: Woody Harrelson as a gay journalist, Patricia Clarkson as a nymphomaniacal mother and Richard Jenkins as a father suffering from Alzheimer's. It also profits from an uplifting soundtrack, snappy dialog, fun digs at the rom-com genre, a stylish New York backdrop and two great flashmob sequences in Times Square and Grand Central Station.
