This movie was almost identical to Friends with Benefits. Just the players were changed, but it had the same premise.

Ok, so I rolled my eyes and watched this on Netflix because it was there and I like Natalie Portman (and, I will confess, I have a bit of a soft spot for Ashton Kutcher and his luggish appeal). I thought to myself, "This will be mediocre at best, and I may not even finish it, but I'll put it on while I work on this spreadsheet". The first ten minutes were much better than I had anticipated, and by 30 minutes in I had stopped working on my spreadsheet and was completely enthralled. Yes, enthralled. And now I am here preparing to buy a copy.

The main characters are likable and relatively believable: Kutcher makes a convincing and sympathetic beta-male, and Portman does self-sufficient-damaged-goods quite well, without taking it into a maudlin or preachy "I don't need a man" place. The movie does a nice job of inverting the traditional romantic comedy gender stereotypes, with the girl being the distant one afraid to commit and the guy being the one trying to change her mind. The peripheral characters--while quirky--are not the over-the-top caricatures that often crop-up in romantic comedies, and it's sexy without being raunchy, and sweet without being sappy.

I'm not saying this is the best movie you will ever see, but you know the premise, you know the genre, and you know the actors. And taking all those things into consideration, I think it is absolutely the best movie it could be.

Format: Blu-ray
Funny romantic comedy, good for couples, friends, basically anybody who wants a laugh. I've had issues with the BluRay since day one. I put the disc in my BluRay player & it doesn't do anything, it looks like it's loading but never does. I checked the disc, it's not scratched, I immediately tried other BluRay discs in my player & they worked, I even tried playing it on another BluRay player to no avail; clearly it's this one particular BluRay disc. The good news - it comes with both DVD & BluRay, so at least I'm not hooped, however, I would've preferred to watch the BluRay, obviously.

The Movie: I enjoyed it, it was funny, clever & the chemistry between Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher was great. I much preferred this to "Friends with Benefits" for many different reasons, one being the comedy factor but mainly because I didn't see the chemistry between Justin Timberlake & Mila Kunis, whereas I did see chemistry in "No Strings Attached", maybe it's just me.

Overall: Besides the issues with the BluRay copy I received it's good, I just won't watch it in HD, at least it's not some major flick with all sorts of great cinematography.

Who Needs Love? Let's Just Have Sex! Jan. 21 2011
By Chris Pandolfi - Published on Amazon.com
What "No Strings Attached" lacks in originality and unpredictability is made up for in the charm and likeability of its leads. Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman not only have great onscreen chemistry, they also are individually well developed - at least, as well developed as they can be within the boundaries of a romantic comedy. It's also surprisingly funny, although it's only partly because of the well placed raunchy sex jokes; the film is one of the few recent romantic comedies to successfully find that balance between sweetness and silliness, and while that's only moderate praise for writer Elizabeth Meriwether and director Ivan Reitman, at least it's proof that they know how to take innately ridiculous material and make it accessible to general audiences.

The film is not realistic in any way, shape, or form, but that's just stating the obvious because we don't go to movies like this looking for meaning or truth. It tells the story of Adam and Emma (Kutcher and Portman), who first met as teenagers in summer camp and saw each other off and on over the next several years. In the present day, they live in Los Angeles, Adam an assistant on a TV series that crosses "Glee" with "High School Musical," Emma a doctor at UCLA. They have successfully maintained a friendship, although there's always a flash of jealousy whenever one of them shows up with a significant other. When Adam's girlfriend dumps him for his father (Kevin Kline), he goes on a bender, makes several phone calls to women he knows ... and wakes up in Emma's apartment, naked and surrounded by Emma's friends and fellow residents.

No sex took place the night before. The morning after, however, Adam and Emma suddenly drop their defenses and just go for it. That's when they decide to take a stab at being friends with benefits; they will use each other for sex at any time of the day, but they won't commit to anything long-term. Surprisingly, this comes at the insistence of Emma, who for reasons left a little obscure is frightened by serious relationships. This is made clear in her habit of texting Adam rather than seeing him in person, a trend that has become all too real in today's smart phone society. I'll stop short of saying this movie is sending a message about technology limiting social interaction, although there are hints of it all throughout.

No more of the plot needs to be described. It goes through the motions and ends exactly the way we expect it to end. There are, however, a couple of side characters that deserve to be mentioned. One of the best is Adam's on-set colleague, Lucy (Lake Bell), who's deeply neurotic and talks at a hundred miles an hour. Making this kind of character likeable is next to impossible, and yet Bell pulls it off, probably because she understood that there's a fine line between comedy relief and annoyance. And then there are Adam's best friends, played by Chris Bridges and Jake Johnson; they aren't given all that much to do, but you can count on them for a few good male-oriented one-liners. Kline is somewhat underutilized as Adam's father, a former TV star who does drugs as if it was the 1970s and has a thing for much younger women. He's mostly just a counterpoint to his son, a way for the audience to see what Adam should not do when it comes to meeting and loving the opposite sex.

One of the film's funniest scenes is in Emma's apartment, where she and her girlfriends - along with one gay man - spend the night together in the throes of menstrual agony. Knowing they're all on the same cycle, Adam stops by with a box full of cupcakes. He also gives Emma a period-specific mix CD, with titles I probably can't repeat for the purposes of this review. There's also a moment when Emma gives Adam a Valentine's Day card, which reads, "You give me premature ventricular contractions." I laughed hard. But then again, I was raised by registered nurses who specialized in cardiology, so I probably have an unfair advantage.

Reitman made the right choices in the casting of Kutcher and Portman, for they have that compatibility movies like this require. Kutcher is especially enjoyable and plays what may be the warmest, most caring role of his entire career. Portman is also a natural fit for this movie, which is surprising given her latest stint as a mentally ill ballerina; it's good for even the most dedicated and serious of actors to reveal that they do in fact have a sense of humor. "No Strings Attached" is by no means a great movie, and it will never be in the same league as "Ghostbusters" and "Ghostbusters II," my two favorite Reitman comedies. But if you're in the mood for a conventional lightweight romantic comedy, this movie gets the job done nicely.

Ehhh. (*shrugging shoulders impartially*) May 21 2011
By Erin K. Dowd - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I consider myself to be a solid judge of a movie based on the previews, and this movie's previews definitely piqued my interest. As a single woman, begrudgingly falling into the stereotype, I'm always seeking a good love story that I can relate to. Unfortunately, I felt that this one fell flat. A decent overall movie to watch on a rainy day, but a uninspiring storyline.

Mildly entertaining May 22 2011
By Alex H. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Comment: This review is written by an older guy from the "free love" Emerson Lake and Palmer, Black Sabbath, Yes, and Beatles generation. I don't usually watch "chick flicks", but i'm a movie collector, so some "get through". This film is a (hard core) formula movie for this genres (chick flick). I have to say that when this movie started I couldn't help but think how "prissy and "gay-like" (the new generation depicted by this movie...) was looking and acting. As the story started to go... it started to become entertaining. One thing that I just couldn't get past was the casual way people had sex with each other. I mean even back in my day of "free love" (despite what you may of heard or read) when you were "boning a girl" you liked, you didn't pass her around like a reefer (as some of the characters were doing). My "distilled" comment for this movie is that if you strip away all the "fluff" around the main story it is somewhat entertaining. Is it believable or true to life... not a chance in hell. Please don't "flame mail" me as some have done in the past. This is a "free and open" venue for us to express our opinions. Thank You.

Do no waste your time Nov. 17 2012
By DZKBWP - Published on Amazon.com
Story has no substance at all. Transition between scenes is poor. Slow and boring. Not even worthy of my time to watch on a rainy day. Talents are wasted in this movie.

No chemistry July 29 2011
By Loo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
It is really sad when you get your expectations up with a new Ivan Reitman comedy only to be bitterly dissapointed by it. There is a hardly any chemistry between the two protaganists (Portman and Kutcher). All we get is a bawdy comedy with a slow moving story. Kevin Kline is simply wasted. Just oh dear, yawn.
