This evening I saw the movie No Strings Attached at AMC Cinemas, Admiralty, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list.
It is a romantic comedy staring Natalie Portman (Emma) and Ashton Kutcher (Adam), playing two life long friends who have sex one morning. In an effort to protect their friendship, they decide to make a pack to keep their relationship as “no strings attached” (aka. friends with benefits). The movie has made popular a quote among the social networks.
What I need is someone who’s going to be in my bed in 2 a.m. who I don’t have to lie to or eat breakfast with… Use each other for sex at all hours of the day and night, nothing else.
Portman definitely carries this movie where the rest of the actors done an okay job of supporting her. Even though Kutcher has an equal billing for this movie, his role is nothing special. It’s similar and at times identical to all other roles he played in the past: Killers, Valentine’s Day and What Happens in Vegas.
On the other hand I have enjoyed Portman’s performances since her role as Mathilda in Luc Besson’s The Professional, then as Queen Amidala in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and Evey in V for Vendetta.
This a fun entertaining movie to watch with your love one. It is definitely a good option if there’s nothing else to choose from at the theater.
