The fact that Hollywood has lost all sense of innovation and originality isn't news anymore. If you need proof, just watch THE HANGOVER 2. And, for the most part, it seems as though we've accepted this fact. Sure, it may not be new, but so long as it's funny, engaging, or interesting we'll look over how unoriginal it is. And just like Todd Phillips' new film is a complete retread of the same film he made in 2009, FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS is exactly the same film as NO STRINGS ATTACHED, the Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher film from earlier this year.

If you'd like more convincing, check out the international trailer after the break.

Though it's the same movie, I'd like to hope this could be better than NO STRINGS ATTACHED. That movie was terribly put-together; it came across more schizophrenic than Russell Crowe in A BEAUTIFUL MIND. This one looks a bit more grounded and I'm more interested in Justin Timberlake than I am in Kutcher. Further, Kunis is a new force on the field for most. It could end up being fun and maybe worth a watch.
