Aside from its unromantic plot, "Attached" is over-sexed, overdone and overcome by a terrible script.

And although execution counts for a lot, there's no amount of skill on Earth that can help this turkey. The script is just too awful. Rent it one day if you're in the mood to find out exactly how not to write a sex comedy.

It ends up being just another one-night stand -- perfectly enjoyable, but mostly forgettable, and maybe even a bit regrettable.

The charismatic leads keep this watchable, but it's a waste of their talents.

The film sets off coarse jokes like signal flares, positioned to distract from its otherwise dowdy makeup.

As Portman preps to take the Oscar this weekend for Black Swan, there are people still questioning if she can really act at all.

The movie goes from breezy and sporadically funny to plodding and dour, and even Portman's performance loses a bit of its spark.

Former king of rude comedy Ivan Reitman doesn't get his money's worth for the R rating... ...it's about a fifth of the raunch the Judd Apatow crew gets away with.

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

Acting opposite Ashton Kutcher is the equivalent of dropping down a year in school for someone like Natalie Portman.

Here is a titillating sex romp in 2011, when the very words titillating and romp have outlasted their shelf lives. The movie is rated R, but it's the most watery R I've seen. It's more of a PG-13 playing dress-up.

It's not that the leads aren't affable. They are. It's not that they aren't nice to look at. They are. (Although the cinematography makes them look sort of blotchy.) It's just hard to care if they hook up after they, well, hook up.

A bland couple has some trivial obstacles to overcome and you just wish they would get out of the way -- their surrounding friends and family are much more interesting.

A more interesting actor could make do with those, but Kutcher just doesn't seem to fill up a leading role, especially when acting opposite the nuanced likes of Portman.

[Reitman] has opted to make what a friend of a friend told him a Judd Apatow romantic comedy was supposed to be.

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

If I had to dig for praise, it's impressive that Reitman manages to get the 5'2" Portman and 6'3" Kutcher in the same frame.

Calculated mix of raunch and adorability

Sex, sex, sex, sex. Echoed repeatedly, the word is used like a hopeful incantation, as if by its mere repetition we'll be convinced that the movie is indeed something hot and desirable. It's not.

No Strings Attached has absolutely no designs above its station...inoffensive, mildly amusing and instantly forgettable.
