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.
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.
