Friends with Benefits

Genre:
Comedy

Director: Will Gluck

Stars: Mila Kunis, Justin
Timberlake

Rating: ***




In the inevitable comparison between Friends with Benefits and January’s No Strings Attached, the newer film, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, comes out on top.



The comedy is sharper, the pace brisker, and while Timberlake is alarmingly limited as an actor, he’s vastly preferable to Ashton Kutcher in No Strings Attached.



Kunis does the heavy lifting to make up for her partner’s blandness, and she nearly runs away with the movie.



The only real fault is an emotional storyline about Timberlake’s character’s father and Alzheimer’s, which grounds the movie to a halt.
