Editorial Reviews

Meet Chloe and Owen: best buds since their sandbox days. Now, in med school as they attempt to balance the weight of their studies, his job, her band, their parents, their friends (their sanity), they find little time for relationships...but lots of time for the desire. One fateful day, a brave Owen proposes the "perfect" solution: Friends (read: no messy relationship stuff)...with benefits (read: insanely messy sex stuff). EXTRAS INCLUDE commentaries, deleted scenes, alternate endings, cast auditions.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

Format: DVD

I wanted to point out that the DVD is loaded with EXTRAS, including 2 audio commentaries (one from me, the other from cinematographer Adrian Correia), over 35 minutes of deleted scenes (also with commentary explaining how and why these scenes were cut from the film), two alternate endings (also with commentary), and a hilarious audition tape.

More info, including trailers, can be found on the film's official site. (Can't post a link here, but a quick search of "Friends With Benefits Official Site" will bring you right to it.)

If you're wondering about its rating...the film would fall into the hard-R category (though one scene might get it an NC-17)...who knows. It's funny, sexy, the cast is hot and talented. BRAD'S RULES will make you laugh out loud! (#56 is my personal favorite.) The indie rock soundtrack is the best you'll hear this year. (Yes, I'm sure of it! And if you've seen my last feature You Are Alone, you'll likewise have no doubt.)

We had a blast making FRIENDS (WITH BENEFITS), filming it completely in the New Haven, CT area using a number of great local locations.

Hope you enjoy watching it!

This movie is fantastic. I can't say enough about how phenomenal this movie is.

This movie has great acting (by everyone! You totally get sucked in by their performance), great music (OH MAN the music...), and a great story. I don't even know where to start.

The story is about two 20-somethings that have been best friends since childhood that one day decide to sleep together and begin to fall in love with each other (or maybe realize they've been in love with each other for a long time...) And, fantastically, unlike the s****y iterations that the mainstream "Friends With Benefits" or "No Strings Attached" are, the main characters actually ARE friends -- sandbox playing, prom-going friends. The other two movies are just two adults that meet one day and become each others one-night stands. THIS movie is only TRUE friends with benefits movies out there. And they do a gorgeous job of it.

I've got absolutely no qualms about saying that this movie is one of my all time favorite movies.

Do yourself a favor and get this movie. You won't regret it.
