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.
