While it's not without problems, No Strings Attached is a romantic comedy worth watching, and that's saying a lot. Every member of the cast lights up the screen with humor and charm and there are a lot of genuinely funny moments.

Benefits the most from a sexy, emotionally available/vulnerable turn by Natalie Portman. But the Kutcher guy isn't bad either.

Portman is a true comedienne on screen. Hopefully she'll add a few more performances like this one to her resume' in the near future.

This being a Hollywood romantic comedy, the outcome of the story-about a man and woman who agree to a sex-only relationship-is obvious from the get-go, so this film is all about the journey, not the destination...

While the ultimate conclusion is still the same as always, and Ashton Kutcher's flat delivery nearly ruins it, No Strings Attached is a thoughtful twist on the usual romantic-comedy.

All Adam and Emma are doing is pretending to not be emotionally vulnerable and living out our fantasies without suffering any of the consequences. I call BS.

Quite the rarity for Hollywood romantic comedies, No Strings Attached is loaded with funny ideas. Portman creates a complex leading lady. It's a funny, sharp and wonderfully dirty

The picture is not completely unengaging, however, thanks to two likeable lead performances from Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman.

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

How many Ashton Kutcher films have you emerged smiling from?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

It's a lot more candid, at least verbally, than most American rom coms are these days and I like that about it. I liked its cheekiness of dialogue.
