It�s No Strings Attached versus Friends With Benefits in a rom-com showdown

Like Armageddon and Deep Impact or Volcano and Dante’s Peak , No Strings Attached and Friends With Benefits are examples of the weird phenomenon where two films with nearly identical premises are released the same year-although neither of those disaster movie pairings feature Justin Timblerlake in the film that doesn’t share the title of his boy band’s most successful album. And if adding the Black Swan and ‘N Sync connections on top isn’t strange enough, there’s also the fact that the respective rom-coms feature former That ’70s Show co-stars and future real-life married couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
