No Strings Attached - Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher play ‘friends with benefits’ in No Strings Attached, a romantic comedy that looks smutty but is actually slushy. Portman’s overworked doctor and Kutcher’s TV show assistant have a sex-only relationship, but for a change it’s the woman who wants sex on call and the man who’d like some cuddling too. Of course, the duo can’t keep their emotions out of the equation forever, as they eventually learn with predictable consequences.

No Strings Attached is a bit of a tease. Ivan Reitman’s film leads you on with its raunchy manner, pretending to be edgy and daring, but as the plot unfolds, it turns out to be safe and sappy to the core. Kevin Kline is fun, though, as Kutcher’s dad, a randy former sitcom star who sends his son for a loop when he begins dating his nubile ex-girlfriend (Ophelia Lovibond).

Released on DVD & Blu-ray by Paramount Home Entertainment on 27th June.

    Too predictable. I like Kutcher though. He portrays a sympathetic character.
