Since the movie was filmed in Canada, many of the minor characters (as well as lead actor Ryan Reynolds) are played by Canadians. Three of the supporting actors - "Fred Ewanuick", "Mike O'Brien" and "Cavan Cunningham" were regulars on the Canadian sitcom "Corner Gas". See more »

Just Friends is a very good comedy to go see during the holidays. It takes off with a hilarious start but gets a little weak during the last 10 minutes, however the rest is hilarious! Anna Farris is the funniest crazy girl since Isla Fisher (the red head who played Gloria Cleary in Wedding Crashers) She does a very good job of coming off as a Paris Hilton mixed with Ashlee Simpson! Too funny! If you like romantic comedies (no this is not a chick flick) then this will be perfect for you! Chris's younger brother also does a nice performance of making sure his older brother Chris is well informed that he is a loser that can't "boink" the girl of his dreams while trying to get-it-on with Sam (the crazy girl played by Anna Farris) Either way, this movie appeals to all in need of a good laugh this holiday season. Do Not Miss It!
