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.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

    Finding Nemo, only because Finding Dory took awhile to establish itself.
