Will Gluck


Mila Kunis, Justin Timberlake and Patricia Clarkson


Jamie is a recruiter for a leading job agency in New York and Dylan works as an art director for a small internet company in Los Angeles. Jamie has the task of trying to recruit Dylan to interview for a job with GQ magazine in New York. She convinces Dylan to take up the job. After a fun night together exploring the city, Dylan decides to take up the job in new York. Soon, they quickly develop a platonic friendship and become buddies. But one night, while hanging out at Jamie’s apartment watching a romantic comedy, they get on the topic of sex and relationships and Dylan suggest a ‘no strings attached’ sex.

Soon, they become ‘friends with benefits,’ without the trappings of emotional attachment, or so they like to think. After some time, Jamie says that this is not what she wants ultimately and wants to date and be in a relationship. So, they stop fooling around. But, the events that follow make them realise that there is more to their ‘privileged’ friendship.
