Jamie Rellis (Mila Kunis) is a New York City head-hunter trying to sign Los Angeles-based art director Dylan Harper (Justin Timberlake) for her client. When he takes the job and makes the move, they quickly become friends. Their friendship turns into a friendship with benefits, but with Jamie's emotionally damaged past and Dylan's history of being emotionally unavailable, they have to try to not fall for each other the way Hollywood romantic comedies dictate.Written by
After Dylan sees that Jamie has drawn on his face, he gets her back by drawing on her face with a pen with ink that will only show up under a black light. While he's drawing on her face, he makes what looks like a circle around her left eye. When she is shown, later at her meeting, with the drawing Dylan did on her face, there is no circle around her left eye. Some can say it was the eyebrow he drew, but the eyebrow shown drawn on her is not as circular as what was shown when he was drawing on her. See more »

Surprisingly Enjoyable with Great Chemistry Between its Leads,
Friends with Benefits is a good movie with a pretty well developed storyline and a fantastic comedic cast.I thought this would be exactly like No Strings Attached,and I really hated that movie so I wasn't going to bother watching this,but my friends told me it was much different and better,and while I didn't believe them I gave this a chance and I'm happy I did,it is much better and it isn't similar at all to No Strings Attached other than the set up of two friends having casual relations.I cared about these characters a lot and wanted them to get together,there was really great chemistry between Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake,and there are also hilarious cameos from great comedy actors such as Woody Harrelson,Andy Samberg.Emma Stone,Rashida Jones,Jason Segel,among others.My favourite part of the movie was Richard Jenkins,he delivered a great performance and the emotional addition of him struggling with Alzheimer's was a good idea and very sweet,I cared about him more than anyone else.It isn't anything outstanding,but it's funny and certainly a better than usual romantic comedy that I would recommend to anyone looking for a good one.
Two friends who despise romance decide to add a bit of love making to their friendship without any complications.
Best Performance: Richard Jenkins Worst Performance: Patricia Clarkson
