As the aliens invade Earth in countless attack-from-above movies in 2011, the beds will also be shaking from plenty of lovemaking.

Friends with Benefits stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in yet another movie about the questionable morals of sexually-active Americans.

Amidst the other three movies about relatively similar topics that come out next year, this one feels the most real. Timberlake and Kunis are two actors that carry a natural charisma on screen. But will that be enough to hold up a romantic comedy that is asking for mediocrity and predictable plot turns?

Instead of forcing humor upon serious issues like adultery, cheating or promiscuity, Friends with Benefits sheds light on the always tough decision of keeping it platonic. But didn’t we already see this movie when it was called Just Friends starring Ryan Reynolds? Maybe the premise is similar, but the comedy is definitely raunchier in Friends with Benefits.

Check out the red-band trailer from Trailer Addict below. It has plenty of partial nudity and suggestive scenes, but other than some limited profanity, it isn’t too vulgar. Though, things might get a little awkward in the movie theater.

The trailer is pretty memorable – to say the least. Think back ten years ago, when Timberlake was still breaking young girls hearts and Kunis was cracking up young boys in That 70s Show.

I doubt we would have imagined those two rustling under the sheets singing ‘Closing Time’ in a feature film. As funny as it was, that last scene in the trailer still has me a bit flabbergasted.

The supporting cast inĀ Friends with Benefits is promising as well. Richard Jenkins, Emma Stone, Andy Samberg, Jenna Elfman all co-star, but were not seen in the trailer. Woody Harrelson also gets a few cracks at the plot in the trailer as Timberlake’s friend.

Of all the questionable romantic comedies coming out next year, this looks the most enjoyable. It doesn’t hurt that Castle Rock and Screen Gems see fit to release it in the heart of summer. It also doesn’t hurt that the trailer indicates the film won’t pull any punches – something missing from most romantic comedies.

But in the end, it is a romantic comedy about sex. How many of those can you say truly rocked the box office and wowed audiences? This may be yet another forgettable comedy, but if it can stay loyal to its premise and skip the corny ending where love always prevails, the filmmakers may be on to something.

Will Friends with Benefits capture the magic of contemporary relationships? Will it be another wasted opportunity to make more than just a rom-com? Sound off in the comments section below.

  1. Funny how it’s the exact same premise as Ivan Reitman’s “No strings attatched” and yet this one looks good.

  2. weird where each of these actors came from, ones a Disney Pop star and the other was a mean girl on a Fox sitcom but surprisingly they’re pretty good actors.

    this actually looks pretty good

  3. Timberlake isn’t that bad of an actor. One of the better musician-turned-actors if I must say.

    Mila Kunis THOUGH :D

  4. Wow.

  5. I actually wanna see this. Damn you Timberlake! Taking all my roles!

  6. Mila Kunis is adorable and has more personality than most actors on screen right now.. I just don’t want her to try to act too young or too Hollywood. I’ve liked seeing her grow in the last couple of movies. She was the best teenage bubblehead in That 70s Shows. All the teen stars today try too hard to be sexy, they all have little girl voices except for cyly myrus who sounds like a white trash truck driver and they’re all twitts…
    Mila was always interesting to watch and the ensemble had great scripts that teens of that era could relate to. I’m from the Midwest and they captured the period better than anyother sitcom I’ve seen to date. Today, Disney has made all the teen girls into sexy simpleton twitts. They’re all truly obnoxious. I would see Friends with Benefits just for her.

  7. It looks pretty good and funny. I probably would pay to watch it lol

  8. Ialso forgot to say. She’s great in Family Guy I only wish they would have given Meg more screen time. That’s one of her most unique roles and kept me cheering for her all along the way. Most movies she’s made since That 70s Show have been awful. Someone good should start helping her select roles. Her 15 seconds on Date Night was terrific and again with James Franco in The Hills was interesting. Haven’t seen Black Swan yet…Hopefully, we’ll see enough of her to see if she has any acting chops. And once she unhooks her wagon from the fallen star (Culkin) she may actually be able to act better if she starts living life without that safety blanket. Hope she gets smart and hitches her wagon to a raising star like Seth MacFarlane. They’d be the cutest and most interesting couple in Hollywood. By the way why aren’t their stars on the Hollywood Walk. I mean if Bill Maher and Taylor Swift (oh my God…this is a girl who can’t carry a tune and looks like a long white noodle) can get stars on the walk than why can’t Mila and Seth who’ve done twice as much in their years in the business. Maher is very good but Swift is god awful.

  9. It certainly does look better than No Strings Attached. Kunis is generally good fun and Timberlake has become a decent actor in his own right.

  10. check out the flick that came first. loved it. sexy,funny, cool. the real friends (with benefits). fwbmovie.com


  11. This looks awful.

  12. This movie was actually very good. Although it looked to be the exact same as “No Strings Attached’, this one had a well thought out story line that had much more emotional content than that of which is the usual of a sexual comedy. There were sad parts that made you want to cry, and then others that filled you with glee and amazement. I definitely did a lot of laughing as well. Wonderful movie that I highly reccomend.
