7 Romantic Comedy Movies Like Friends With Benefits

Can’t get enough of movies like Friends with Benefits? I can’t blame you; I really liked the film, much to my surprise. I thought it was going to be your average romantic comedy movie, but I couldn’t be more wrong. Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are such a cute couple, and I know what many of you can relate to the situation they put themselves in. But even if you have never been in this kind of relationship, I’m sure you can still find the film really enjoyable to watch.
