No Strings Attached Reviews

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

A Revolutionary Road-style sequel exploring the couple's woes five years down the line might be interesting and give Portman a chance to shine. Perhaps they could hire an actor for Kutcher's part.

Quantum string theory, it ain't. But it's passable enough if you just fancy gawping at some glossy leads for a bit.

Liverpool Echo

Thankfully, this film is blessed with director Reitman and well-judged performances from Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, who generate smouldering on-screen chemistry.

You just sit and wait as the film churns out tedious brash sex comedy.

How many Ashton Kutcher films have you emerged smiling from?

You don't need a PhD in romcomology from the University of Predictable Nonsense, formerly Predictable Nonsense Polytechnic, to guess what happens next.

Daily Telegraph

No Strings Attached is nominally a raunchy romantic comedy, but Natalie Portman betrays so little indication of enjoying herself you'd be forgiven for thinking we were watching deleted scenes from Black Swan.

Radio Times

Portman does seem a bit too brittle and neurotic for this sort of easygoing fluff, but Kutcher, who makes relaxed light comedy seem much easier than it actually is, proves right at home.

Portman can look smug in light-touch comedy, but her chemistry with Kutcher is believable (though to be fair, Kutcher is the golden retriever of male leads: blandly irresistable).

It's good to see Kline on screen again and Kutcher and Portman make an appealing couple.

Like that little itch after a one-night stand, this could have been something more.

February 23, 2011

Although it falls into the many clichéd traps of the genre, it has some amicable and candid qualities that make it more appealing than the usual run-of-the-mill offerings.

Simon Braund
Empire Magazine

Not a bad premise, but material demanding a light touch is weighed down by a desperate desire to fit in, like a little kid swearing to impress the big boys.

Richard Jordan
Total Film

A none-too-challenging romcom saved from obscurity by a kooky supporting cast, smutty one-liners and Portman flaunting her funny side.

Problems range from howlingly obvious flaws like the foul, Knocked Up-wannabe script, to almost undetectable nuisances like the way Kutcher never signals when he's turning into a side street or driveway.

No String Attached is a dismal start for 2011's casual sex comedies.

The Standard

Despite its obviousness, the sharp script and the pairing of Portman and Kutcher elevate No Strings Attached above what you expect from a sex-based rom-com.

Sydney Morning Herald

The film's first half is best, largely because the conceit that keeps the lovers from the inevitable happy ending is much too flimsy to go the distance.

An inoffensive, oft entertaining and even occasionally funny addition to the genre.
