No Strings Attached, a comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman, opens in theaters nationwide Friday, January 21, 2011.
No Strings Attached is a story about life-long friends Emma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) who almost ruin everything by having sex one morning. In order to protect their friendship, they make a pact to keep their relationship strictly “no strings attached.” “No strings” means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers, no baby voices. It means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don’t fall in love. The question becomes — who’s going to fall first? And can their friendship survive?
The cast of No Strings Attached includes Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Greta Gerwig, Kevin Kline, Ophelia Lovibond, Mindy Kaling, Olivia Thirlby, Lake Bell, Jennifer Irwin and Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges.
No Strings Attached received mixed reviews from the movie critics.
“Predictable, cutesy and nowhere near hot-blooded enough for a story about two friends with benefits who can’t keep their hands off one another.” -Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
“Portman proves game for just about anything here, the raunchier the funnier.” -Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
“Letting the tension evolve naturally from the insecurities of relatable, well-developed figures would have been preferable, but once Kutcher’s character goes all soft and gooey, the movie does too.” -Christy Lemire, Associated Press
“At times, No Strings Attached feels almost shockingly attuned to the particular angst of its time and place.” -Karina Longworth, Village Voice
