NO STRINGS AT­TACHED (2011) TEN, 8.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Golden Globe-win­ner Natalie Port­man ( Black­Swan) en­ters into rom-com ter­ri­tory to star along­side Ash­ton Kutcher in this light-hearted romp. A spin on the friends-with­ben­e­fits theme, trainee doc­tor Emma (Port­man) and pro­duc­tion as­sis­tant Adam (Kutcher), who have known each other for years, share an in­ti­mate mo­ment af­ter an­other chance meet­ing. While Adam is smit­ten, am­bi­tious Emma in­sists they leave their emo­tions at the door and go with the flow in a ca­sual re­la­tion­ship. The two leads are easy on the eyes and the script of­fers some funny mo­ments, but Port­man’s spir­ited per­for­mance is the much-needed an­chor in this not-too-raunchy com­edy. ★★★
