I’d prefer you didn’t.

Just Friends - 2.5/5 
I forget (or never realized) that early Ryan Reynolds was just an angrier, vitriolic Jim Carrey. He's a physical comedian that uses a lot of mean words. Here, he’s an egotistical asshole that never gets what he wants, which makes him less insufferable. The problem with the movie is that what he wants – Amy Smart – is boring. There’s nothing there to indicate why they were friends, or why he would want to take it further. She’s just a generic pretty girl. Extra points for the brother relationship, which could’ve sustained the entire movie.
