Friends With Benefits (2011)
Watched Friends with Benefits (2011).
It had a GREAT first half but a rather weak second half. I love Will Gluck for his “Easy A” and kind of expected a film as awesome as that while watching this and was rather disappointed. The first half was hilarious, extremely fast paced and entertaining as heck, but it’s when the second half hits and the characters begin to get a bit serious is when the film get’s rather messy and cliched and not so great…it seemed to struggle to know if it was still aiming to just plain out funny or serious and ended up getting rather dull. The awesome chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis manages to keep the film alive for a while but even that get’s a bit dull and ends off with a satisfying but cliched ending. Overall, I enjoyed it but I have to say I was kind of disappointed.
