Storyline

What happens when a man meets the woman of his dreams, but she wants to be "just friends"? The debut feature from the literally named Five Sisters Productions is a sweet and playful romantic comedy that boasts a culturally diverse cast. Meet Peter, an insurance analyst, who gets dumped by his girlfriend right when he's ready to pop the question. He becomes chummy with Rebecca, who's engaged to a guy who won't be coming to town for another month. Can they hang out and be just friends without things getting too complicated?

A flawed, but worthwhile light romantic comedy...
16 October 1998 | by (Southern CA) – See all my reviews

Just friends initially appears as another generic, feel good, cliché ridden, dating in the '90s movie. It essentially is this, but it also provides a solid character study of two people and whether or not they can remain platonic friends. "When Harry Met Sally" is a better film in the genre, but overall "Just Friends" is a decent light romantic comedy. I feel the bottom line is that romance junkies will probably enjoy it, while most others will likely become bored after the first 10-15 minutes.
