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.

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.

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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 22, 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
February 22, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Richard Jordan
Total Film
February 22, 2011
A none-too-challenging romcom saved from obscurity by a kooky supporting cast, smutty one-liners and Portman flaunting her funny side.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

This is what I mean by 'January junk.'
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
Matt Neal
The Standard
February 10, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Sandra Hall
Sydney Morning Herald
February 10, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
Beth Wilson
Trespass
February 10, 2011
An inoffensive, oft entertaining and even occasionally funny addition to the genre.
