Friends With Benefits
Release date: 9 September 2011
Running time: 109 mins
Director: Will Gluck
Starring: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson, Richard Jenkins, Woody Harrelson, Bryan Greenberg
Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) are young, attractive and successful. Jamie's a New York-based headhunter. Dylan's a graphic designer she lured from LA. They get on really well, but have both been through plenty of failed relationships and are naturally wary of getting involved.
So why not just have some fun? After all, they both agree that love is a fantasy promoted by Hollywood romantic comedies and there's no reason why a physical relationship should be complicated and emotional. How could their experiment in a casual, no-strings relationship possibly go wrong?
Hot from her stunning performance in 'Black Swan', Mila Kunis sizzles opposite Justin Timberlake (equally hot after 'The Social Network') in this thoroughly modern relationship comedy. Director Will Gluck ('Easy A') also gives great comic supporting roles to Patricia Clarkson as Jamie's mum and Woody Harrelson as Dylan's best mate.
Screenplay: David A. Newman, Keith Merryman, Will Gluck
