Whether it's online or in...

Their friendship turns into a friendship with benefits, but with Jamie's emotionally damaged past and Dylan's history of being emotionally unavailable, they have to try to not fall for each other the way Hollywood romantic comedies dictate. I was unsure what to expect going into Friends with Benefits at an advanced screening a few weeks ago. It always seemed a bit too close in plot to No Strings Attached made extra odd as the female leads Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman Buddy with benefits literally just starred together in Black Swana film that came out less than six months ago, and while the trailers looked amusing, they seemed to look a little too close to an atypical romantic comedy.

But the film actually ended up surprising "Buddy with benefits." Well, the first half at least. They become good friends, and after a discussion about their relationship failures, decide to start having sex without the relationship schmaltz hence the titular phrase.

But the good times cannot stay uncomplicated for long. Rather surprisingly, the first half of Friends with Benefits is a ridiculously raunchy sex comedy that is sweeter than it is crude. The dialogue and one-liners drop Buddy with benefits a steady pace, and there is plenty of laugh out loud moments.

The scene that starts the initial "Buddy with benefits" antics is a complete dissection of the genre, and seeing the film twist and turn around the familiar plot devices was Buddy with benefits to see. It made the film feel hilarious, but also made it feel like it was attempting to do something different at the same time.

Adding in a couple of random cameos from notable actors was a bit wacky which the trailers have ruined slightlybut helped add to the humour. Except the film comes to a screeching halt just about halfway in when Jamie and Dylan come to the all too obvious realization that they may want something more.
