I have watched several movies that included rooftop scenes. These are mostly romantic-comedy films so a lot of times, the scenes included anything from just talking, hugging, to making out.
In some of the scenes, the characters just go to the top of the roof to think and unwind. Yeah, there is nothing like being on top to make up feel like you are at the top of your world and the top of your game. It is much easier to think up there, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. I do remember in the movie, Friends With Benefits, that the character of Mila Kunis would go up the rooftop to think and unwind at the end of each busy day. That was like kind of her sanctuary. It was not allowed because that wasn’t her building, but she enjoyed sneaking up there.
What I also like are those parties on the roof deck. For example, there would be a group of people who will bring a couch, a table, some beers, and a barbecue pit so that they can grill some meats up there and have a good time. They do not really have a wood-burning fire pit from FirePits.com and sometimes they just makeshift but they have fun. That is what matters.
Now I am looking forward for a weekend barbecue getaway! Weeee It may not be at the rooftop but it still is going to be fun to spend time with family.
On one date night again, hubby and I watched Friends with Benefits. It is a nice and light romantic comedy movie–the kind of film that we like to watch as our bonding time.
Anyway, the movie stars pop star Justin Timberlake and the sexy Mila Kunis. I like the movie because the ending is like a modern-day fairy tale. Though I do not exactly like the storyline if it is gonna happen in real-life, I do like their portrayal. Justin and Mila have a nice onscreen chemistry and they really look comfortable together.
Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake on the sofa--a famous scene in the movie where they talk about having sex without emotional attachment.
Since Justin is a singer, they script has exploited this fact and has made the guy sing some lines in the movie. And I think that is great.
Friends with Benefits has a similar plot to the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman movie–No Strings Attached. But I think that FWB is much better because Ashton and Natalie do not seem to be a nice match. It was bad casting.
Having watched the movie Friends with Benefits starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, I started to think about my own friends.
I know that in the United States and maybe among the more liberated group, the phrase “friends with benefits” is like a status. This means that friends sleep together and with each other without romantic involvement. But of course, we all know that this will not be the case forever because somehow, more often than not, one or both of the friends eventually end up falling in love. And well, needless to say, it complicates things.
Anyway, as for my friends with benefits? I just want to say that having friends just has all the benefits to us, emotionally, mentally, physically–but for us, of course it is not sexually. When I say physically, I mean friends helping friends in time of need, such as needing a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or some stuffing to the empty pocket. We also provide prayer support.
Of course, having friends has its benefits, it just depends on what kind of benefits you are looking for.
Note: We also watched a movie with a similar plot, No Strings Attached, starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.
