Hilarious Friends with Benefits red band trailer

MilaKunis.jpgTalk about hilarious, the new trailer for Friends with Benefits features just the two leads, Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, but that's not a bad thing, for the two of them and some strong scripting provide for a few genuinely funny moments.

Often when I see trailers like these for Hollywood comedies, especially ones that advertise themselves as “adult” ones, I end up seeing a few funny moments and then it turns into a run of boring stock Hollywood moments and jokes about bodily function and extremely crude sex jokes, none of which reflect average adult behaviour or are very funny. Not so here.

I loved some of the moments in this trailer, and others are still funny and feel very adult orientated, and again as I said about the trailer for No Strings Attached, I don't mean that because there's swearing or nudity, because it feels like we're watching real adults talking.

Let me point you to a couple of moments, the screaming scene, the nine year old, the singing covers, are all moments where I laughed out loud and they did nothing but draw me to the film. Both Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake look like they're going to be great together and they're backed up by a strong cast too with names like Woody Harrelson, Patricia Clarkson and Richard Jenkins.

To be honest Friends with Benefits feels like No Strings Attached, or to be fair they feel like each other, and that's no bad thing, I think there's enough to go round in the genuine adult comedy realm.

Here's the red band trailer that comes through Deadline Hollywood Daily, and for those of you not governed by the MPAA, that means it's rude. I've watched it and it contains swearing and some Hollywood hidden sex scenes. Nothing to get wound up about, to be honest nothing more than you'd hear in the playground! Cracking trailer though.



As I watched the trailer, the resemblance to "No Strings Attached" really striked me. Is this gonna be the new kind of adult romantic comedy?

I hope it is, as it tends to be more realistic and touches on real adult issues while being genuinely comedic, not just crude and loud.

Would you prefer more of this Vash?

Of course, both films look good from their trailers but you know as well as I do that when an idea becomes a bandwagon, a lot of crap comes from it.

Most definitely. Usually you can tell by the trailers, but there's an art to fooling us on that one.
