Putting Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in a romantic comedy that has been told already is just kind of plain to me. Watching FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS on this Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack follows two people who cross paths and find love the hard way while proclaiming their "friendship" and "benefits" through the entire movie.

There are some fun moments in the movie and some all too familiar. Friends with Benefits always leads to complications as it does here in this light-hearted romantic comedy. Timberlake and Kunas both have a few comedic moments but it's Kunas who stands out in the movie, big time! Oh, I can't forget Woody Harrelson's performance because he steals the show with his limited screen time! It's worth the watch just to see Harrelson in this role.

Don't get me wrong, the movie is worth watching if you're looking for a new one to check out but it just seems like I've seen it in about a dozen other movies, this time with different characters. It's definitely sexy, thanks to Mila Kunis but there's just a few funny scenes in it but the ones we get are bust-a-gut hilarious!  There's also some flash mobs in the movie so if you've only heard about one of these mobs here's your chance to see some in action and what it's all about. the movie also has a great supporting cast which includes Harrelson, Andy Samberg, Emma Stone and even pro snowboarder Shaun White has a few funny moments.

Bottom line is if you're looking for a romantic comedy you haven't seen then check this one out. It's not the best but definitely not the worst I've seen. Friends With Benefits is now available on DVD and on Blu-ray. 3/5
