Friends With Benefits Movie Vs. No Strings Attached Movie Differences Friends With Benefits vs. No Strings Attached: How to Tell Them Apart by Shannon Vestal 08/7/11 31 Reactions 0 Shares Print 0 0 0 0 0 Back in January, Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman starred in No Strings Attached as two friends who decide to sleep together without the messy involvement of a relationship. If the trailers for Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis's Friends With Benefits is giving you major movie déjà vu, we're here to help. The titles and premises are already confusing, so I'm going to try to clear it up for you by making distinctions between the two films before Friends With Benefits hits theaters on July 22.

I especially liked the spot that had "Love In America" by JTX, I love the playful synth lines, hope I hear the song in the actual movie, too ( watch at http://vimeo.com/26184095 ) emilywhaaat 2 years It's funny why the directors decided to release these movies at almost the same time when they have more or less the same plot. If I were to choose, I think I'd pick out Ashton and Natalie. But I think that Friends With Benefits have more funny moments than No Strings Attached. I'm thinking of watching one of these movies with my long distance boyfriend (http://www.longdistancerelationshipsadvice.net). littlemunchkin 2 years #4 I agree - will be interesting to see the difference between how a female directs a film on this subject and a male. awesomepants 2 years Justin Timberlake ruins movies. He's not charming on screen and he's one of those people who has a big head because a couple of people told him he was funny. baileydancerr 2 years I love that its Ashton kutcher and Mila kunis from that's 70's show. baileydancerr 2 years I love that its Ashton kutcher and Mila kunis from that's 70's show. 3 years Mila kunis over postman any day. Friends is soooo much better- if you can't decide which one to watch 3 years i think it is so funny how Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman just came out in the same movie and now are coming out with their own movies about the same thing...there's gotta be some kinda of connection.... 3 years It will be interesting to see how both stories unfold as one is written by a a female "No Strings Attached" and "Friends with Benefits"s is written by a male. Same story line from each gender I think I will like No Strings better because the female will have the upper hand...I'm sure than men will like Friends better because the male will have the upper hand. indiegirl66 3 years Hi all-look, before Justin & Mila & Ashton & Natalie, the indie world did it first with a terrific young cast out of New York. FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS) went on to win tons of awards at film festivals around the country. Check it out. Oh, and if you watch closely you'll catch the cameo of the hot young actress currently working on her dragon tattoo... http://www.babelgum.com/4024119/friends-with-benefits.html indiegirl66 3 years Hi all-look, before Justin & Mila & Ashton & Natalie, the indie world did it first with a terrific young cast out of New York.

Burkina 3 years There is something so off puting about Mila Kunis's eyes.
