Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson - 'Friends With Benefits'Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- He's "emotionally unavailable." She's "emotionally damaged." That must mean they're perfect for each other in a no-commitment kind of way, right?
In the new movie "Friends With Benefits," Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are exactly that -- friends with benefits.
"No emotions. Just sex," says Kunis' character as she and Timberlake embark on their new arrangement. They learn that taking emotions out of the mix is not as easy as it sounds because regardless of your intentions, sex almost always complicates things.
If the plot sounds familiar -- think Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman in "No Strings Attached" -- you're not far off. The premise is similar, but "Friends With Benefits" takes a completely different approach. In fact, this one might have more in common with "When Harry Met Sally."
According to "Good Morning! Arizona" producer Lisa Fuller-Magee, "Friends With Benefits" has more laughs and more drama than "No Strings Attached," which came out in January.
Fuller-Magee sat down with Timberlake and Kunis, as well as Patricia Clarkson, who played Kunis' mother.
"Friends With Benefits" is rated R, obviously. It opens Friday.
