Actual plot synopsis: Justin Timberlake gets to fuck Mila Kunis


16th March 2011

Friends With Benefits. No Strings Attached. Spot the difference.

Every once in a while, two movies with similar stories are released around the same time. Armageddon and Deep Impact. Antz and A Bug's Life. Volcano and Dante's Peak. Well, say hello to Friends With Benefits, a 'fuckbuddy' romantic comedy that's basically No Strings Attached but with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis wearing Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman's skin like pyjamas.

This is creepy. Not only do both movies have the exact same plot - two attractive friends decide to hook up for casual sex before realising (*trailer music drops out*) they're more than just friends - but the cast is frighteningly similar too. Timberlake graduated from the same Hollywood Douchebag Community College as Kutcher, while Kunis and Portman just got done starring in Black Swan, a film about how they're two sides of the same coin. Both women have been ruined by letting some dimple-chinned skeeze shoot their beans up them.

Don't get me wrong - I'll still masturbate to it, I just won't be happy about it.

Okay, Friends With Benefits - you score one point for bagging on Katherine Heigl movies. Maybe this could work after all. In any case, this old red-band trailer is much better because it has swearing in it. Er, remind me why I'm not supposed to like this movie again?
