Two words a guy never wants to hear…

Just Friends. As the most wonderful time of the year is arriving, Just Friends is a festive romantic comedy that should appeal to young couples.

Chris reminds me of myself. He was fat, very fat, geeky, silly, tries so hard to impress but never had the girl he wanted. The only difference is he is Ryan Reynolds in a fat-suit, and I exercised. 10 years latter, he transforms. Will he get his girl now?

The movie is made by the producers of American Pie, so you think you know what to expect? It’s hilarious, mischievous, clean and bitter sweet at times. While Ryan Reynolds proves that he has comic timing, the person who is unforgettable is really Anna Faris, who does a bimbotic turn after her Scary movies. Oh no, she will be type cast, but who cares.

Just Friends fizzles out towards the end, with predictable turns and run-on-the-mill jokes. It is still a feel good movie for its target audience this holiday season.
