“NO STRINGS ATTACHED” IS A PLEASANT SURPRISE
We walked into No Strings Attached with low expectations. Romantic comedies of late have been universally disappointing and repetitious. And Ashton Kutcher’s presence is always a gamble. It’s a difficult science. We hoped that if Natalie Portman agreed to do it, it must be tolerable. And indeed, the script was amusing and occasionally surprising, and there were some memorable scenes – Natalie ‘s character was studying to be a doctor and her roommates were delightful, as were all the fine supporting actors. In summation, the entertaining scenes outnumbered the predictable scenes and it was fun to watch. So give it a chance, you might like it – in spite of Ashton Kutcher.
