Just one major new release this weekend...
It’s a romantic comedy exploring the eternal question: What do women REALLY want?
In NO STRING ATTACHED they apparently want to be like men—having their sexual needs fulfilled without those nagging constraints of a relationship.
Natalie Portman plays a busy young doctor who’s on-and-off friends with TV writer Ashton Kutcher. And guess what? She ends up in bed with him.
I don’t think so, as SHE now suggests a NO STRINGS ATTACHED arrangement with no emotional baggage.
With working titles of F*** BUDDIES and FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS, the romantic comedy redefines gender roles and challenges normal stereotypes regarding male and female relationships.
It boggles the mind: Ashton Kutcher as commitment-phobe Natalie Portman’s SEX TOY?
Hey, there could be worse things in life.
Question is whether love will eventually get in the way?
(Hint: Is the Pope–Catholic?)
With its 1:48 hrs. running time, here’s another example of shorter would’ve made for a better movie!
Will Hollywood EVER Learn?
All-in-all, the (barely) R-rated NO STRINGS ATTACHED co-starring Kevin Kline as Kutcher’s adventurous dad (dating Ashton’s ex) and the spastic Lake Bell should make for a fun date night or ‘Girls Night Out’ at the movies.
For those two celebrations I’ll raise 3 out of 5 cutesy fingers.
