Ryan Reynolds is quickly becoming one of my favorite comedic actors. "Just Friends" is a tale of a dorky fat teenager that is tragically trapped in the ‘just friends zone’ – hence the title of the film. Chris Brander (Reynolds) morphs into a Hottie McHoterson in Los Angeles after he leaves his hometown. As a young and wealthy music producer, Reynolds meets and dates a hilariously loquacious teenage pop diva. If you see the movie just for her rendition of a blond pop star, you will get you money’s worth.
Points of the movie posed too dramatic for a lighthearted comedy. These scenes were not horrible but they did slow the pace of the movie down. The movie is not worth you running to the movie right now. However, if the situation presents it self, you will have few good laughs.
