Perfect pairing in hilarious rom-com
NO STRINGS ATTACHED ( 15) “Smouldering chemistry”
Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Kline.
THAT crazy little thing called love complicates a seemingly perfect relationship based on sex in Ivan Reitman’s comedy. No Strings Attached centres on a pair of 20-something professionals who don’t have time in their busy schedules for an inconvenience such as commitment. So they agree to be friends with benefits. Adam (Ashton Kutcher) works as a lowly TV producer on a show that is cynically jumping on the High School Musical bandwagon. After disastrous previous encounters, Adam stumbles back into the life of medical student Emma (Natalie Portman), who once told him, “People aren’t meant to be together”. They agree that there would be no harm in no-strings-attached sex. But screenwriter Elizabeth Meriwether gradually shows her protagonists the errors of their ways. No Strings Attached is uproariously funny and anchored by winning performances from Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, who generate smouldering chemistry. FAMILY WATCH: Swearing, Sex, Violence.
