If you saw the trailer for Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis' latest flick and thought a movie about two friends who make — and then struggle with — the decision to start hooking up with each other seemed very familiar, you are not alone. Yes, a very similar movie starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman arrived in theaters late last year, and apparently Hollywood doesn't think America will notice. Here's video proof that they are, actually, the exact same fucking movie.
Oh thank you for this! I saw the preview for Friends with Benefits this weekend and was so confused why they just remade the same movie that Natalie Portman had made. And then I thought, maybe I'm just confused, maybe it was longer ago than I realized, maybe I have pop culture senility. But no, Hollywood is just not that creative.
