The raunchy premise here is just a smokescreen for the sort of squarely moralistic, altar-bound comedy of which even Jane Austen would approve.

Sexy, fun and full of quotable zingers, if you see only one casual-sex-com featuring a Black Swan alumni this year, make sure it’s this one.

The results are about as naughty as that sounds (not very), but it also makes for a fairly giggling good time.

The news about this movie is that it makes it clear that both Timberlake and Kunis are the real thing when it comes to light comedy.

Slipping a buff Justin Timberlake and a toned Mila Kunis between the sheets as the naughty but nice romantic pair turns the heat up considerably in this happily never after tale.

Goes a long way in bringing sexy back to a soggy genre, benefiting greatly from the presence of its likable leads.

This coasts along just fine thanks to charm and comical interludes, but it fails to deliver the sassy story it promises.

Romantic comedies - and this is one, in spite of its phony irreverence - turn largely on star power, and theirs is transcendent, whether they're casually trading one-liners on the streets or doing running commentary on their sexual escapades. They'd have been better off staying in bed.

meh. standard fare

i'm getting sick of Timberlake. he seems a bit ubiquitous lately...SNL, social network, in time, this. however Mila Kunis is always good. almost as good here as she is on family guy.

It was worth going to.

There were a few laughs. Justin Timberlake was an unlikeable character which is a good move for him. Mila was a spunk. Great soundtrack

Predictable, but surprisingly fresh

What can I say. predictable plot - definately. But Mila's and Justins chemistry reazlly sold it to me, as well as the fresh dialouge which definately made made laugh out loud at some stages. So yeah, worth a watch, and if you liked "no strings attached" you will love this one. Predictable though. But great!

Romantic Comedy with a twist

Justin & Mila work well in this movie as a couple with everything that goes on in their world they grow together as friends & apart when she has to push him away, He wont hear of it & tries everything to get back with her....

Great fun

This movie was about Jamie played by Mila Kunis and Dylan played by Justin Timberlake who meet when Dylan is looking for a job in New ork and Jamie is a head hunter helps him through the interview process. They decide to have sex with no complications. Just friends. This film has so many pop culture references its crazy. It also has all the cliches of a rom...

Pleasantly surprised it wasn't a chick flick

There wasn't too much analysis and ice cream eating by the woman so I didn't categorise it as a chick flick, but put it in the rom com category instead. Good enjoyable, lighthearted, feelgood comedy with reasonable one-liners and some different characters for variety. Woody Harrelson is particularly funny if a little over the top. But then NY folks are...
