Will Gluck’s Friends With Benefits (2011) Movie Review
Star cast: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Woody Harrelson, Patricia Clarkson.
Director: Will Gluck
A young female headhunter (Mila Kunis) in New York who convinces a potential recruit (Justin Timberlake) to accept a job in the Big Apple. Despite an attraction to each other, both realize they’re everything they’ve been running from in a relationship and decide to see what happens if they leave emotion out of it and keep it strictly physical. What happens next? Does love win over all odds? Is the remaining story-line. Justin Timberlake getting better and better with each film, he fits his charm quite well. Mila Kunis was cute, charming, perfect in her role. Chemistry between the lead pair was perfect. The entire cast in the movie was fantastic and supported each other pretty well. Will Gluck’s Direction is decent. he could have done better with narration and camera angles. The story line in this film could have been a little more fast pace to keep the audience a little more motivated. Its a standard ROM-COM where you can predict whats coming next. The Screenplay is Funny and Engaging. Cinematography by Michael Grady is neat. BGM is loud. Editing could have been crispier. On a Whole, Friends With Benefits deserves a one time watch for smart performances, cleverly written Screenplay and for raunchy comedy. I quite enjoyed its comedy and emotional levels. I recommend this for all ROM-COM lovers.
Survi Review: 3.25/5
