The benefits, such as they are, of Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake [Video]

March 18, 2011 |  2:29 pm

Screen Gems has released a trailer for "No Strings" -- er, "Friends with Benefits" -- the second movie about said topic in the space of six months. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, in turns somewhat less awards-y than their two prominent fall films, star in Will Gluck's July comedy.

The central F.W.B. relationship here seems less convincing than Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher's in “No Strings Attached," which is saying something. And Justin Timberlake trying broad comedy looks like an awkward fit, though the trailer makes sure to get in more than a few winking references to his singing career by incorporating shots of him doing some freestyle karaoke.

The material appears to be at its strongest when it's tossing out asides: Woody Harrelson as some kind of gay, free-love sidekick, or disses to current romcom queen Katherine Heigl. Or maybe it's just that we'd rather see anything other than movie characters wondering if they can have condition-free sex.

I think that at the end of the day it can entertain us.i mean it's not a "obra- prima'' but we can have some fun watching it!besides,justin is not that bad(deeeeeeeeeeeeep down) and mila kunis has a bright future ahead of her,she's very talented!therefore, i'll probably watch it!

Lol at Justin clearly being told to man up that squeaky speaking voice of his. He actually almost sounds like a dude.
