Friends with benifits (2011) Rated: R (Restricted)
Run Time: 109 minutes At a time when mainstream comedy has been overtaken by rambling, pleasingly sloppy Judd Apatow-type improv-fests, director Will Gluck has been quietly doing his part to remind folks that sticking to the script and having a destination in mind can be fun, too. Much like his earlier Easy A, Friends with Benefits is a clever, just-this-side-of-painfully-hip relationship comedy that knows when to linger over a punch line and when not to break stride. A few minor speed bumps aside (filmmakers: can we can it with the musical montages, already?), it goes down extremely easy. The story in a nutshell: frustrated by the lack of viable dating options in their vicinity, two platonic friends (Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake) decide to embark on a casual, no-strings-attached physical relationship. However, as a briefly glimpsed clip from Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice foreshadows, things don't stay simple for very long. As opposed to the standard PG-13 rom com, things get surprisingly raunchy here, but organically so, with the slight snafus and briefly major embarrassments that should ring true to most relationship veterans. As in Easy A, Gluck has assembled a fantastically game supporting cast, including Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman, and especially the great Richard Jenkins and Patricia Clarkson as two vastly different parental figures, but it's really the two leads' show. Whether arguing the virtues of the band Kriss Kross or engaging in activities unprintable on an all-ages website, Timberlake and Kunis display the snappy back-and-forth of a classic cinematic coupling. When they're cooking, you don't want to be anywhere else. Actors: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis

When Josh refuses, Kara breaks up with him. In the final debate, Josh halts his line of debate to ask Radisson: "Why do you hate God?"

Singing in the Rain (1952)
Singing’ in the Rain, American musical comedy film, released in 1952, that was a reunion project for the American in Paris directorial team of Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly, who was also the films’ star. Singing’ in the Rain emerged as a classic, considered by many to be the greatest Hollywood musical ever made. Writers Adolph Green and Betty Comden discovered that MGM had a cache of many wonderful but unheralded songs featured in the studio’s films from the early sound era. This inspired them to use these tunes as the basis of a screenplay about the trials and tribulations endured by people in the film industry when sound was introduced, a process that made plenty of new stars while destroying many established ones. Kelly portrayed a studio star who falls in love with an aspiring actress, played by Debbie Reynolds. Her lovely voice wins her a place opposite him in the new “talkie” films, pushing aside his screechy-toned leading lady, played by Jean Hagen. Running time: 103 minutes Through some of the most memorable and exuberant musical and comedy sequences ever filmed, Singing’ in the Rain capitalized on the dilemmas of the transition to sound. Kelly, ever the perfectionist, found a way to include a now legendary extended-fantasy dance number with Cyd Charisse. Donald O’Connor’s gymnastics in the famed “Make ’Em Laugh” number are so stunning that, for today’s audiences, they might resemble computer-generated effects. Reynolds was only 19 years old when she starred opposite Kelly in the film, and it made her a major star. Singin’ in the Rain’s most unforgettable sequence is Kelly’s performance of the title song. The image of him swinging from a lamppost in the rain, delighted at falling in love, is one of the great images in film history. Cast Gene Kelly (Don Lockwood) Donald O’Connor (Cosmo Brown) Debbie Reynolds (Kathy Selden) Jean Hagen (Lina Lamont) Millard Mitchell (R.F. Simpson) Cyd Charisse (Dancer) Academy Award nominations Supporting actress (Jean Hagen)
