'Just Friends' With Ryan Reynolds Has Landed On Netflix

'Just Friends' With Ryan Reynolds Has Landed On Netflix

Just Friends is the ultimate easy watch - and now it's dropped on Netflix, you can bet we'll be settling down to watch it on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

The classic 2005 comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Anna Faris and Amy Smart is a nostalgic throwback for every 90s kid and *thank you* Netflix for returning it to our lives.

In case you haven't watched it (or can't quite remember the plot) here's a recap.

The flick focuses on Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) who lives in Los Angeles but returns to his hometown over the Christmas period.

Last time Chris was home, he was an overweight teenager and in love with his high school crush, Jamie Palamino (Amy Smart) - with whom he was firmly in the friend zone.

At the end of high school, when Chris finally plucked up the courage to reveal his true feelings to Jamie, he was humiliated in front of his classmates when Jamie's ex-boyfriend, Ty, reads his confession of love to the entire graduation party.

Chris vows to leave town and become more successful than all of them.

A decade on and he has pretty much smashed his goals. Not only is he in great shape, he's also a successful record producer in LA.

But when he's tasked with taking up and coming star, Samantha James (Anna Faris) to Paris, the trip turns to disaster when the plane has to make an emergency landing in New Jersey, not far from Chris' hometown.

He ends up taking Samantha to stay at his parents' house where he is faced with his teenage past.

We don't want to spoil it, but the movie focuses on Chris coming face-to-face with Jamie and how he handles the lingering feels he still has for his first love.

Will they be more than 'just friends' this time? As we've already watched it 382344 times, we *do* know the answer, but we'll still be tuning in for the millionth time.
