Just Friends Movie Review

Some people are destined to fall in love and be together forever. Others are doomed to a fate of getting stuck in the "friend zone". The new comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart is a tale of a boy in love with his best friend - but she thinks of him like her brother. Good plot idea? Find out if it works with this review!

Just Friends - I Just Don't Think of You in THAT Way

Chris Bender (Ryan Reynolds) is a sweet guy. His best friend, Jamie Pallomino, (Amy Smart) is the prettiest girl in school and he's ready to take things to the next level with her. But, Amy just doesn't see her big, cuddly best bud in that way. When Chris confesses his undying love in Jamie's yearbook on graduation day, the jocks get ahold of it and humiliate Chris in front of the whole school. He takes off and vows to make a name for himself.

Just Friends - A Lot Can Happen in Ten Years

The story fast-forwards to ten years in the future. Chris has lost weight, buffed up and is a big music executive! It's Christmas time and his boss wants him to sign a hot new singer who is on her way to Paris for the holidays. Unfortunately, their plane is delayed in New Jersey - Chris's hometown! Suddenly he has to face all those people from high school again - including Jamie. All his feelings come rushing back, but he tried to play them off and be cool. Instead he ends up looking like a jerk!

Just Friends - Cat Fights

Just Friends is full of hilarious one-liners and side-splitting scenarios. Anna Faris plays the self-absorbed pop star, Samantha James, who is always super dramatic. Whether it's flashing her taser gun around or sticking tinfoil in the microwave, she definitely steals the show. Ryan Reynolds' feud with fellow, former geek, Dusty (Chris Kline) also creates some great scenes. There are a few times when the story drags a little, but for the most part, you will be in tears (from laughing so hard, of course!).

Just Friends - Bottom Line

You will be pleasantly surprised at how funny this movie is. All the characters do a great job, including the supporting cast - like Chris' neurotic mom and horny little brother. If you're looking for a flick that's just good fun, definitely check out Just Friends.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
