Jamie (Kunis) is a headhunter ("I prefer corporate recruiter") who lures Dylan (Timberlake), a website art director, to New York to interview for ''GQ''. He takes the job and the pair become close friends, eventually agreeing to have sex -- just sex, with no further attachment -- while they're on a break from romance. They both go through a few other people in the film and deal with issues surrounding their parents.

** Averted by the movie itself in that all scenes were shot in either New York or Los Angeles. However the interior of the New York GQ offices were a set in LA and although they were in NY, the Empire State Building behind Mila in the opening scene was digitally painted in. Fun fact: this was the first movie that actors were allowed on the actual Hollywood Sign.
