Hollywood Enjoys Hook-ups: Friends with Benefits means No Strings Attached

Two trailers debuted this week and they seem nearly identical.

Friends with Benefits (Red Band Trailer)

No Strings Attached

With similar plots, the only thing that gives Friends With Benefits the edge is the cast. I really like Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake really proved himself as an actor in The Social Network. Natalie Portman just seems better than this material and Ashton Kutcher has been doing these roles for so long. I wish he would try something new! My favorite movie of his was The Butterfly Effect, which is markedly different than the rest of his filmography.

Either way, this look like Netflix material. Which one do you think looks better? Will you see either?

I'm so excited for this movie! It looked great at Comic-Con and now that more details and images are coming out, it looks even better.
