Friends With Benefits (2011)


Two incredibly attractive, wise cracking leads.
A script that puts their wise cracks, foul mouths and amazing bodies to great use.
Energy bursting from every pore of the film.
A perfect exercise in pure formula like the director’s previous work Easy A.
Solid support, particularly from Richard Jenkins and Woody Harrelson.
Wish there was more of Patricia Clarkson though.
Meta-humour and film references in almost every scene.
This is formula for the Community generation.
Deluded and unrealistic just like every other romantic comedies.
But. Oh. So. Fun.
Bonus: Flash mobs. How can you not love them?
Verdict? Sit back and enjoy.

Rating: 3.5/5

P.S: I think I will stick to short reviews from hereon, at least for a while. What say?
P.P.S.: If the Community reference makes no sense to you, you are poorer for it.
