Storyline

Chris Brander has always been friends with Jamie Palamino, but now decides it is time to take his relationship to the next step. The problem is, is that Jamie still wants to be 'Just Friends'. When he runs away and moves to L.A., he becomes a attractive music manager, who everyone wants. When his jet catches fire and is forced to land, when flying to Paris with his newest singing sensation, Samantha James, he ends up back home. To his surprise, he encounters Jamie again, and sets out to be more than 'Just Friends' this time. Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

In the opening scene when Chris is leaving the party on his bike, he paraphrases a line from Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road": "It's a town full of losers, and I'm pulling out of here to win." See more »

Goofs

When Samantha is rehearsing her song "Forgiveness" in the jet, she asks Chris if she should use more vibrato. However, when she starts singing again, instead of using vibrato, she uses falsetto (she sings in a higher voice rather than giving the notes more vibration). See more »

Quotes

Samantha James: [singing on her guitar] Forgiveness, is more than saying sorry. To forgive is divine. So let's have a glass of wine. And have make-up sex until the end of time, time, time, time, timmmmmmeee! Time.

Just like "Friends Zone", starts off really good, but when it gets down to business and wants the truth, it abruptly ends
14 March 2006 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

"Just Friends" is one of the best romantic comedies I have seen in a long time, but my only problem was on how it ended because it seemed like it just wanted to get it done and over with. But I could relate to Amy Smart's character in some ways, so being able to be in touch with the film I think helped a great deal. Also, I loved the jokes! Anna Farris is one of my favorite comedic actresses, she knows how to carry a joke and make her character so funny! She's just a hoot in this film! Amy and Ryan looked so cute together in this film and the jokes are non stop. The love story is also very touching and I think a ton of people could relate to it. So, I would highly recommend this film for a good laugh and a touching one at that. So, sit back and enjoy!

8/10
