why is no strings attached rated r
The set-up is standard issue and lacking in conflict, the dialogue hokey. Cliches are everywhere, including one particularly aggravating scene that has Portmanвs character stuffing her face with donut holes after a romantic disappointment while listening to songs with Significance (with a capital S, naturally). Must every romcom include a scene in which women ease their heartache by overeating? Yet NO STRINGS ATTACHED is surprisingly entertaining. Like the role or not, Portman commits to Emma, and we, in turn, commit to her. (Not so much with Kutcherвs Adam, though heвs not terrible. ) The rest of the ensemble -- Mindy Kaling, and
-- is also impressive; they're a ridiculously talented bunch who make the usual supporting-cast peccadilloes amusing. Itвs also refreshing to have the female character as the one whoвs commitment-phobic, while the guy sits around waiting for his phone to ring (or ping with a text, as they do these days).
All of these pluses distract from the filmвs flaws, but you may still ultimately have trouble forgiving them. In this comedy, Emma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) are life-long friends 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 questions become - Can you have sex without love getting in the way? And can their friendship survive?
No strings attached was the kind of a movie i wasn t waiting for to watch that much, the only reason to watch this movie was the wonderful and talented and charming Natalie Portman and yes the director too. Natalie is now my most favorite actress of Hollywood now after her greatest performance ever in Black Swan. this movie is a romantic comedy, with less comedy, less silleness, balance romance and what the trailer showed us being a sex comedy, completely opposite of it, less sex. i liked it, i am not being stupid, i like it. its better than most of the romantic comedies that were out last year or last 2 years, not a good or excellent movie but still likeable, one time watch with very good charm to it. it has some faults and problems, but they don t effect the overall movie which is perfect. it had a predictable story and plot. talking about sex friends- lol, it was better than last year s Love and other drugs which just survived on the performances of the pair, the whole look and the fresh idea.
Direction of this movie is appreciative, i must say he handled this movie with care and depp thought. this movie could have become a silly rom com but he saved it, i liked it. but it needed slightly more effort. screenplay needed some touches, other wise perfect timings of everything. not good written but well written. but some minute problems with it otherwise it was ok. the movie takes a bit time to actually make you get into the movie s vein. but once it do you love it. it feels very empty in the beginning but than it is a likeable fare. plot was ok, good story. i would say one thing that they needed to have give some more attention to the characters. editing was pretty average. talking about performances so about Ashton Kutcher, he was below average, this guy sems very cute and likable in the movie but he is just not a good actor, i didn t liked him in this movie either. but he looked very hot in that naked butt scene, lol. he looks good but doesn t act good.
Natalie Portman, i haven t seen her in this kind movie ever. she needed a break from all the hard work she did in Black Swan but even in this silly rom com genre she found a likeable above average (if not good) movie, bravo. i liked her in this movie, she could have been better. she is so beautiful and lovable in this movie. she was good in this movie. the supporting cast was ok. so i liked this movie, i know you will too. go watch it.
