Growing up together, Mitch (Reynolds) and Dave (Bateman) were inseparable best friends, but as the years have passed they’ve slowly drifted apart.

Following a drunken night out together, Mitch and Dave’s worlds are turned upside down when they wake up in each other’s bodies and proceed to freak the &*#@ out.

Trailer Mashup – ‘Friends with Benefits’ vs. “No Strings Attached”

Posted on by Admin in Blind Film Critic, Mashups / Recuts | Comments Off on Trailer Mashup – ‘Friends with Benefits’ vs. “No Strings Attached”

[Update – July 1, 2011: It has been brought to our attention there is another film with a similar storyline. It’s an independent film entitled, “Friends (with Benefits)”, which premiered in 2009. Scroll down to watch the “Friends (with Benefits)” trailer.]

One Year. Two Movies. Same Formula.

…at least that’s how it appears when you watch the trailers for ‘Friends with Benefits’ and “No Strings Attached”. We produced this mashup to compare the two movies side-by-side. Wonder which film is better?

Trailer Mashup – ‘Friends with Benefits’ vs. “No Strings Attached”


ORIGINAL TRAILERS

“No Strings Attached” Trailer

“No Strings Attached” Plot Summary
In this comedy, Emma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) are life-long friends who almost ruin everything by having sex one morning. In order to protect their friendship, they make a pact to keep their relationship strictly “no strings attached.” “No strings” means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers, no baby voices. It means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don’t fall in love. The question becomes- who’s going to fall first? And can their friendship survive?


“Friends with Benefits” Trailer

“Friends with Benefits” Red-Band Trailer

“Friends with Benefits” Plot Summary
Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) think it’s going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe. They soon discover however that getting physical really does always lead to complications.


Update / July 1, 2011: It has been brought to our attention there is ANOTHER film with the same storyline. It’s an independent film entitled, “Friends (with Benefits)”, which premiered in 2009.

“Friends (with Benefits” Trailer

Kristine Covello, from What Were We Thinking Films, in Hamden, CT says, “FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS) was originally titled F*CK BUDDIES when written by Connecticut based indie author/screenwriter Gorman Bechard. It was shopped around Hollywood by Bechard’s agents in June of 1999. The script’s title proved a difficult sell, and ultimately was never purchased. Changing the name, Bechard went on to independently produce & direct his film in 2006.” [Here is a production report from IndieWire http://t.co/KokfBhI]

“In 2009, FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS) premiered at STIFF in Seattle and went on to play the festival circuit winning numerous “Best Of” awards along the way. It is currently available on DVD and available to stream via Netflix, Fancast, and Babelgum.” [Website: http://fwbmovie.com]

“Mr. Bechard is currently working the festival circuit with his latest film COLOR ME OBSESSED the first ever doc about famed indie band The Replacements. Earlier this year it was named one of the “Seven Best New Music Documentaries of The Year” by Rolling Stone. He has just begun production on his next project ‘PIZZA, A LOVE STORY’.”

“Bad Teacher” (2011)

Starring: Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch, John Michael Higgins, Jason Segel, Phyllis Smith, Thomas Lennon, Eric Stonestreet

Plot Summary: Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch). When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
