Friends with Benefits (trailer)

I’m gonna go with the doubting that they will avoid the clichés of romantic comedies — though I’m always good with insulting the notion of Katherine Heigl as a rom-com heroine — but will still hope that this won’t be terrible. Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are not annoying (a definite plus), and director Will Gluck made Easy A, which is so far from not sucking that it’s practically great.

It can’t be worse than No Strings Attached, at least. Though it could turn out to be the exact same movie.

I will say this: If it’s plausible that Mila Kunis could be insecure about her body, there is no hope for the rest of us women.
