Jamie, Chris and his mother are watching old home movies after their "group date" seeing The Notebook. There's a close-up shot of "Fat" Chris saying, "I love you Jamie Palamino! You're my *best* friend". The edge of the prosthetic mask he is wearing is visible on the left side of his chin. See more »
[Starts dialing while Chris is on the phone]
Mom, I'm on the phone.
Chris? What are you doing over at Joyce's?
No Mom, I'm in the living room ten feet away from you, and I'm on the phone.
Oh. Well, while I have you on the phone, dear, what would you like for dinner? We have a choice between chicken chow mein or potroast.

Just like "Friends Zone", starts off really good, but when it gets down to business and wants the truth, it abruptly ends
"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!
