Four Friends. No Strings. Lots of Benefits. The Mashup.

OK, here's a pitch for you: Two super-hot people are friends but are, for some reason, totally hard up for sex. They decide to do it... to, say, become friends with benefits with no strings attached.

Sounds like cinematic gold, doesn't it? Apparently, the folks in Hollywood think so, as it's the concept so nice they filmed it twice; once with Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman ("No Strings Attached"), and once with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis (the upcoming "Friends With Benefits").

But apparently, the similarities between the two flicks are more than storyline-deep, as evidenced by a clever trailer mashup created by The Blind Film Critic. We're talking identical camera angles, nearly identical sidekick characters, shockingly similar plot devices and the shared conceit that people this good-looking could ever have difficulty finding sex partners. Ah, movies.
