Fresh from his role as entrepreneur Sean Parker in The Social Network, Justin Timberlake jumps straight into rom-com territory in director Will Gluck’s Friends With Benefits. He stars alongside Mila Kunis in a relationship that is exactly like the movie title suggests—they’re platonic friends who start sleeping together and there are no strings attached (wait, that’s another movie).
