Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
Jamie Rellis (Mila Kunis) is a New York City head-hunter trying to sign Los Angeles-based art director Dylan Harper (Justin Timberlake) for her client. When he takes the job and makes the move, they quickly become friends. 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. Written by
Nolan Gould's character Sam is a budding magician. As Luke Dunphy in Modern Family, he proves to be an accomplished magician in "The Butler's Escape" (season 4 / episode 4) See more »
After Dylan sees that Jamie has drawn on his face, he gets her back by drawing on her face with a pen with ink that will only show up under a black light. While he's drawing on her face, he makes what looks like a circle around her left eye. When she is shown, later at her meeting, with the drawing Dylan did on her face, there is no circle around her left eye. Some can say it was the eyebrow he drew, but the eyebrow shown drawn on her is not as circular as what was shown when he was drawing on her. See more »
I'm supposed to meet up with Jamie.
Who's that? That headhunter?
What, you guys going out now?
No, no, no, we're just friends. We're... messing around a little bit.
What do you mean?
Sleeping together. But it's just sex.
That never works, bro. She's a girl. Sex always means more to them even if they don't admit it.
Does she have a penis where most girls have a vagina?

Surprisingly Enjoyable with Great Chemistry Between its Leads,
Friends with Benefits is a good movie with a pretty well developed
storyline and a fantastic comedic cast.I thought this would be exactly
like No Strings Attached,and I really hated that movie so I wasn't
going to bother watching this,but my friends told me it was much
different and better,and while I didn't believe them I gave this a
chance and I'm happy I did,it is much better and it isn't similar at
all to No Strings Attached other than the set up of two friends having
casual relations.I cared about these characters a lot and wanted them
to get together,there was really great chemistry between Mila Kunis and
Justin Timberlake,and there are also hilarious cameos from great comedy
actors such as Woody Harrelson,Andy Samberg.Emma Stone,Rashida
Jones,Jason Segel,among others.My favourite part of the movie was
Richard Jenkins,he delivered a great performance and the emotional
addition of him struggling with Alzheimer's was a good idea and very
sweet,I cared about him more than anyone else.It isn't anything
outstanding,but it's funny and certainly a better than usual romantic
comedy that I would recommend to anyone looking for a good one.
Two friends who despise romance decide to add a bit of love making to
their friendship without any complications.
Best Performance: Richard Jenkins Worst Performance: Patricia Clarkson
