Earlier this year, we got the Natalie Portman comedy, No Strings Attached. This was based around the idea of a couple who weren’t a couple, who just got together for copious amounts of sex, and nothing more. A bit like When Harry Met Sally, but with a bit of jiggery-pokery.
On a personal note, it’s comfortably winning the race for worst film of the year. I do appreciate that I’m not in the majority there.
Now, we get a second film that treads similar ground. Instead of Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, though, we get Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. The movie? Friends With Benefits.
The film opens in the States this weekend, although we have to wait a few more weeks for it here (it’s down for a September release). But to give it a final push over there, a new red band trailer has been released.
We thus have to do our duty, and tell you that you shouldn’t watch this if you’re under, oooh, 15 or so, and if you don’t like the sound of rude words.
