Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 70%
Critic Consensus: “With plenty of pulpy action, a pleasantly retro vibe, and a handful of fine performances, Captain America is solidly old-fashioned blockbuster entertainment”
Friends with Benefits
Starring: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Patricia Clarkson, Woody Harrelson, Jenna Elfman
Directed by: Will Gluck
Plot: Two friends, who are frequently unlucky in love, decide to start having sex with each other, but complications soon arise.
RT Freshness: 65%
Critic Consensus: “Friends with Benefits adds nothing new to its well-worn rom-com formula, but the chemistry between Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis is almost enough to carry the movie by itself”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
