Hollywood's revisits an age-old formula for a blockbuster, rom-coms on relationship-free sex
Hollywood has explored every possible relationship known to man, woman and dog. Interracial, inter-species, rich and poor, woman and beast, same sex and so on. And since the nature and intensity of no two relationships is the same, films have explored everything, right from the painfully intense to the barely there. More recently, a much-evolved permutation seems to spell success: friends who've individually suffered bitter break-ups and are reduced to f***-buddies. And this platonic copulation invariable ends up with the the two realizing they can't keep their emotions (for each other) out of the bedroom and voila, we have a relationship.
While this age-old recipe for success has been around since 'Last Tango in Paris', among recent blockbusters, 'Friends with Benefits' is as good an example as 'No Strings Attached', since they're hardly any different.
