No Strings Attached
Is it possible to have casual sex with someone without it ever turning into something else? Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher intend to find out with their movie No Strings Attached.
In the movie Portman plays Emma, a resident at a local hospital, and Kutcher plays Adam, an assistant on the set of a TV show (that’s similar to Glee). After years of not seeing each other, Emma and Adam keep accidentally meeting, they even find out that they share a friend. After a drunken text, Emma asks to start a no strings attached relationship. All goes well until Adam becomes jealous of a doctor that Emma is getting close to.
The idea for the movie comes from the theory that young people today find it easier to have a sexual relationship than an emotional one. Ironically the screenplay was titled Friends with Benefits, which is the name of another rom-com, with very similar premise, that also comes out this year.
Let’s be serious for a second. If your male then you most likely will only see this movie if dragged kicking a screaming. In fact, 70% of the audience, on the opening weekend, were female. However, it did beat the Green Hornet, ultimately proving that women are more devoted to the cinema than men, or that the Green Hornet was as bad as I said it would be.
Just remember, as your hand is pried from the cinema door and you realise you really have to sit through this movie, it could be worse, it could be Little Fockers.
No Strings Attach comes to cinemas on the 25th of February, enjoy. Vote and leave a comment below or you will get dragged to see Little Fockers.
