Watching the Second NSFW ‘Friends with Benefits’ Trailer Probably Won’t Ruin the Movie

By  | 

This new red-band trailer from Friends with Benefits uses a lot of jokes from the first NSFW teaser that was released a couple of months ago. That's a good move, because the last thing this movie, which has gotten mostly positive buzz, could do would be to lay all its cards on the table a week before its release date and get the same lukewarm reaction that No Strings Attached did.

What I actually like better than Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis naked is the sardonic soundtrack of “New York, New York” playing in the background of Mila's outraged ramblings about being emotionally damaged, and Justin's straight-man reactions. It emphasizes the movie's almost meta take on romantic comedies and how they ruin our generation's ability to have genuine relationships.
