No Strings Attached

(2011)

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?

BOX OFFICE PREDICTIONS: Can ‘No Strings Attached’ Attract an Audience This Weekend?

Two new films, The Green Hornet and The Dilemma, entered the box office race last week and shot right to the top of the charts. But with the new romantic comedy No Strings Attached, starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, opening this weekend, their reign over the box office could be short lived.

Predicted to debut at number one this week is the new romantic comedy from director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) called No Strings Attached. The film features an all-star cast that includes Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Ashton Kutcher (Killers), Lake Bell (What Happens in Vegas), Cary Elwes (Saw 3D) and Oscar winner Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda). Currently the movie has an average rating of a 4.1 on our site. Out of the four people who have rated the film, two of them have given it five stars and the trailer has had over 25,000 views. Here is what our official reviewer had to say about the movie, "No Strings Attached wastes an intriguing premise and two stars whose chemistry feels real with a reliance on formulaic romantic comedy conventions, bizarrely sudden jolts to the overall tone (in the form of randomly crude jokes and a surprisingly realistic sex scene, which isn't as good of a thing as it sounds) and the total absence of "will they or won't they?" tension." The movie is predicted to earn about $21.5 million in its opening week.
