'Friends with Benefits' review: A laugh-out-loud rom-com

July 22, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
In "Friends with Benefits," Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis decide to experiment with no-commitment sex. They don't want a relationship, just the sexual rewards of one.

This is one of those romantic comedies where you pretty much figure out in the beginning how it's going to end so you just want to have a good time along the way. And I think you will, if you're OK with sex, a little nudity and a lot of four-letter words.

The actors all have fun with their roles. Patricia Clarkson's a hoot as Kunis' unconventional mom; Woody Harrelson is very funny and pretty dirty as Timberlake's gay co-worker; and Jenna Elfman and Richard Jenkins add a lot of heart to the film.

As for the stars, Kunis is just a natural and has great timing, while Timberlake gets better and more comfortable with every role.

"Friends with Benefits" had me smiling and laughing out loud.
