    Anyone get a sense of deja vu here?

    You know what my sense of deja vu is? I don't believe for one minute that any of those four people would have any problem finding someone to have sex with them at any time in the history of the existence of humanity.

    One is set in LA, One is set in New York.

    A DEATH MATCH. TWO MOVIES ENTER, ONE MOVIE LEAVES. It's like Antz and Bug's Life ALL OVER AGAIN!

    They both seem ok. But, I don't really care about Ashton, so I'm gonna say, that one won't do as well.

    Neither of those movies should've been made. They're lazy retellings of stores which weren't all that great to begin with.

    The first one definitely looks better than the second one, mainly because it has no Justin Timberlake.

    Agreed. A few years ago, I might not have said this, but... Justin Timberlake is kinda awesome. His appearances on SNL are hilarious.

    I would prefer a hybrid. Scrap No Strings attached. Replace Timberlake with Portman in Friends with Benefits.

    :lol:

    Anyway, both look cute enough. Natalie Portman's always fun. Although I think it would've been funnier if Kutcher was in Friends With Benefits. ;)

    Better I think to combine the two plots and have Portman *with* Kunis. :devil:

    ^ Yeah, but without any of the "lesbianism is freaky and unnatural" subtext. ;)

    Re: "No Strings Attached" (Portman) or "Friends With Benefits" (Kunis)

    I want to see both of them and I'm very excited (ahem) for "Black Swan". Okay let me see if I can clear up any sort of confusion. There were two scripts. One was called "Fuck Buddies" (the film with Portman and Kutcher" the other "Friends With Benefits" the latter was renamed during production to avoid confusion but they're essential similar films. I think they should have combined both casts and had one giant mega movie. "Friends With Benefits" has a great cast, which includes Emma Stone and Woody Harleson and quite frankly I think Justin Timberlake is going to distinguish himself apart from Ashton in a couple more movies. He was terrific in "The Social Network". If he continues to work with directors who can push him and bring out his charisma (no denying he has that and I'm not a fan of his music) and comedic timing which he seems to be developing more and more I think he's going to be around for a long time. I've never been that big a fan of Ashton.

    I like Portman, but the one with Kunis looks raunchier.
