When it comes to scene-stealing moments, Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to success – having just made a “sequel” to one of his most underrated movies.

The Deadpool and Welcome to Wrexham star is a firm favorite with fans both on and off the screen. If anything, he’s the king of giving people exactly what they want.

While his filmography is extensive, some movies have slipped under the radar – and nowhere is that more true than the 2005 comedy Just Friends.

Ryan Reynolds and Just Friends costar Amy Smart have teamed up for a “sequel” skit to the 2005 comedy.

It’s been 18 years since the movie first aired, with the official synopsis reading: “High school student Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) loves his best friend, Jamie Palamino (Amy Smart). He finally confesses his feelings, but she tells him that she just wants to be friends, and he leaves town in shame.

“Ten years later, Chris is a successful record executive and involved with self-absorbed pop star Samantha James (Anna Faris). He still pines for Jamie, though, and when his plans to go to Paris for the holidays fall through, he returns to his hometown to try and win her heart.”

“It’s a tradition in my house, we watch Just Friends every Christmas. It was great seeing both of them together again,” added another. “This Thanksgiving, we should definitely be thankful for Ryan Reynolds,” commented a third.
