Movie Review: Friends With Benefits (2011)

Hey Dearies! So, since we are sort of stuck at home and trying to find something to watch, other than binge-watching the same few TV Shows, this is the time to look back on some of those movies that weren’t really a ‘big’ hit but are super funny to watch.

This month’s it is the Friends With Benefits and boy is it hilarious!

So, the basic plotline of the movie is that two people, who just got out of relationships, don’t want to do the whole ‘relationship’ thing, but instead become ‘friends with benefits’.

Now, if you are living under a rock or don’t quite know the understanding of what a ‘friends with benefits’ is, well, let me explain to you what it is. It is when two friends agree to partake in having sex or any other pleasing activities, but doing this all without the title of ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend’.


Friends with benefits is quite a known thing that people do and it is mostly common with younger people, especially if they aren’t quite ready for a relationship, but still want to have needs met.

Anyway, this movie basically defined what a ‘friends with benefits’ is and the aftermath of having one, which can go one of two ways:

  1. The people that are ‘friends with benefits’ start to fall for each other and end up turning their agreement into a fulltime commitment.
  2. The people start to developed those feelings and end the agreement, usually because they don’t want to ruin the friendship.

I won’t tell you what really happens in the movie, you’ll have to find out for yourself.

Not to mention, you understand their backstories and families, as they further along as people just having casual sex.


Which this movie makes it so hilarious, especially when they are hooking up for the first time, such as naming all the things that they like or don’t like or what will happen.

Overall, it’s just a cheesy, funny, comedy romance that just goes to show that anything can happen when you partake in the ‘friends with benefits’ relationship.

So, if you are looking for a laugh or just something that is plain old silly, this is perfect for you! I’m one of those people that just love the cheesy romance crap, as some people like to call it, but this movie takes it to that level where how a simple friendship can turn into something more than just sex.
