Just Friends

Ryan Reynolds plays an obese teen only long enough to have his heart broken by his best friend (Amy Smart) in the opening sequence of this lightweight date movie; the rest of it takes place ten years later, when he's become a hotshot LA record industry executive with a killer bod and an abiding contempt for women. Stranded in his native New Jersey at Christmas with his pop star ex-lover (Anna Faris, channeling Courtney Love), the exec decides to get even with his high school flame, and this evolves into a raucous, mean-spirited comedy targeting the holidays and family reunions. Chris Klein steals the film as a rival ex-nerd, now the most gorgeous guy in town, while director Roger Kumble (Cruel Intentions) cribs from the Farrelly brothers and the Three Stooges. PG-13, 96 min.
