Friends with Benefits

15 Dec

friends with benefitsWhile trying to avoid the clichés of Hollywood romantic comedies, Dylan and Jamie soon discover however that adding the act of sex to their friendship does lead to complications.(IMDb)

So, to start off with, I saw No Strings Attached awhile ago, like when it first came out. And I really liked it. That being said, I liked this one better. The story was more realistic, the characters had better chemistry, the dialogue was great, overall I really enjoyed it. The plotline itself was really tangible. I could actually see this type of situation happening. And throughout the movie, there is a real possibility that they won’t get together, that they are simply friends with benefits. Along those lines, I loved how self-aware it was. It made fun of the rom-com genre, while being a rom-com itself. It was an ambitious task that was handled quite well, and led to some hilarious moments. (Including a fake typical rom-com with Jason Segal and Rashida Jones). Then, the subplot with his family just made it even better. As for the chemistry, this movie could have been terrible and the two of them would have made it watchable. Their chemistry was completely undeniable. Loved the two of them. This is definitely one to not miss.

8/10
