Becky and I went to see the new romantic comedy Friends With Benefits on Saturday at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch. The Fandango website at Friends With Benefits describes the movie as follows:
“Dylan and Jamie think it’s going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe. They soon discover, however, that getting physical really does always lead to complications.
Friends With Benefits is not a very good film. It’s pretty much the same movie as No Strings Attached with Ashton Kutcher earlier this year, only with more skin. A couple of people who are in bad relationships decide that they should just have sex together and not get emotionally attached.
This movie really didn’t have any substance. They decided to add some dimension to the film with Justin Timberlake’s father suffering from memory loss as he goes through a terminal illness and Mila Kunis character’s Mom is a bit nuts. It doesn’t really make any sense and it tries to be funny. They added the token gay guy played by Woody Harrelson to the movie as well to try to get some more laughs.
It has some graphic sex scenes as well, which was a bit annoying. The bottom line is that we thought it was a rental at best and I thought it was a waste of time.
