  1. Argues on behalf of the Darwinian theory that all of life imitates high school...But the argument is only halfhearted. Just Friends is much more interested in - and hilarious about - the small nostalgias of suburbia.

    Anna Faris is the single thing that made this movie funny, other then that it was boring. I didn't really care about the characters and Anna Faris is the single thing that made this movie funny, other then that it was boring. I didn't really care about the characters and couldn't feel chemistry between them. It's nothing more than a rental. Full Review »

    It's really hard to like this movie but impossible to totally write it off. My brother and I went to this late Sunday night hoping it It's really hard to like this movie but impossible to totally write it off. My brother and I went to this late Sunday night hoping it would lift the intensity that Thanksgiving weekend brings. It did, but we left wanting much more. The plot is complete and the story is told well, however it does not flow right. You find yourself wanting more in some parts and feeling uncomfortable in others because you feel situations are forced. Serioulsy, continous slapping of the brothers could have been a hilarious ongoing joke but rather you felt it happened to try and get a quick laugh and nothing else, just a tad awkard at some points. Funniest parts came from the two side characters of Klein and Faris, who should be compliment characters not the main draw. I like Amy Smart and Ryan Reynolds but just not together, just didn't work. Anyways to wrap this up, the movie has some decent parts but you'll find yourself waiting for something, something better from these individually funny actors, but it just never comes. Full Review »

    The best comic movie i've ever seen in my life!
    Especially for Anna Faris, I've laughed a lot and watched it a lot of time with my friends!

    It's that kind of film that you can watch everytime you want and you still laugh a lot.
    I can't understand why people don't like it: it's a drug!
