This 2011 comedy has been on my watch list for a while and when I caught this on the telly I was really glad I did. Starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis as two friends who after both experiencing bad relationship issues decide to engage in casual sex, no strings attached while still remaining friends.
Its premise is the ultimate un-romantic comedy, with the two friends remaining determined to not bring feelings into their agreement. However as romantic comedies go, they both start to develop feelings for the other person and after some bumps and misinterpretations along the way the two come together at the end in an adorable, heart-warming scene involving a flash mob.
I can see why when it was released so many people raved about this film as it has so much going for it; it’s a great script with some great laugh out loud moments. It has also helps that Timberlake and Kunis have a great chemistry together, and you can’t help but root for these two characters to get together.
If you haven’t seen this comedy, get it on your watch lists. It’s a perfect excuse for a night in with your friends and some snacks!
