Friends with Benefits

Of course, a vast majority of romantic comedies could be dubbed sexy due to two objectively attractive celebrities bringing a relationship to life in heightened detail. (Think Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.) But few rom-coms have gotten even half as sexy as the 2011 romp Friends with Benefits.

Mila Kunis stars in Friends with Benefits alongside hitmaker Justin Timberlake as headhunter Jamie and art director Dylan respectively, who hit it off while working together. In spite of their mutual attraction to each other, Jamie and Dylan vow to remain friends while also having sex. Because it’s a romantic comedy, their plan doesn’t necessarily work out.

Friends with Benefits arrived in theaters mere months after Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher starred in the equally sexy No Strings Attached, which shared an identical premise and is also currently available on Netflix. Neither were especially lauded by critics, but both were charming rom-coms starring A-list, likable leads letting loose in carefree and, yes, sexy movies they hadn’t tackled before.

Most romantic comedies stick to their strict PG-13 ratings with sensually suggestive scenes, but this one takes its firmly R-rating and pushes it to the limit. Let’s just say that if you grew up with Justin Timberlake and *NSYNC posters on your childhood bedroom walls, you’re going to want to watch Friends with Benefits while it’s available to stream on Netflix.
