The lead figures in Friends with Advantages, this new sex-without-consequences comedy starring Mila Kunis (Black Swan) and Justin Timberlake (Bad instructor), features lead characters who don’t should be in relationship. They must take guidance.
Dylan (Timberlake) is just a website art manager that has been recruited by headhunter Jamie (Kunis) to simply take a work with GQ mag. The brand new gig necessitates a move from L.A. To nyc. Dylan’s afraid he may result in the move simply to fail spectacularly (or “s-it the bed, ” a metaphor they say over and over repeatedly, between talks of the intercourse life and checkered pasts), while she’s confident he has got what must be done to achieve the brand new part. Plus, she gets a fantastic fat charge for recruiting him—and an also nicer bonus provided that he does not keep the career within per year.
Therefore Jamie offers Dylan on nyc by immersing him in the middle of a “flash mob”
—something with which the Web-savvy designer is mainly unknown, despite the fact that flash mobs are often showcased in online videos which go viral. As soon as, supposed to be magical, feels phony—one of several unsuccessful jokes and pop-culture sources at the beginning of the movie, as soon as the whole tale has to create a mind of steam.
