Friends with Benefits
A young man and woman, both recently out of relationships and scared of getting hurt again, agree to a sex-without-love friendship, which lasts for a whole montage. Once they meet each other's families one thing leads to another and they realise that they have fallen in love ... but neither wants to take the next step for fear of destroying their friendship. This film covers much the same ground as the recent 'No Strings Attached' but has garnered better reviews.
