No String Attached (2011)

This movie released on January 2011. Although it has been released long day ago, it is still available on the nearest cinema. Because of the end of the month (which means my monthly fees is run out), I simply downloaded it few days ago and watched it through my computer. :P

“You make my heart have premature ventricular contractions.”

“What?”

“You make my heart skip a beat.”

No String Attached is a romantic comedy movie starring Natalie Portman (Emma) and Ashton Kutcher (Adam).

Emma and Adam have known each other since they were kids. No matter life direction be, they’ll meet each other again and again. One day, Adam know that his girlfriend is having a relationship with his father. In this troubled time, he start calling every woman in his cellphone. The day after, he wake up in Emma’s apartment. Later, he knows that last night he drunked, texted Emma and shared all his stories. Emma leads him to her bedroom to give his pants, but they end up having sex.

Emma and Adam then decide to have each other as sex friends. They set up some ground rules for each other so their relationship not becoming too serious. No fighting, no jealousy, no staring deeply into each other eyes, blablabla. So, can sex friends stay best friends?

No string attached means to have casual sex without falling in love. Like usual romantic-comedy movie, there’s less romance at the beginning of the movie. The romances build gradually when the two main character find their love for each other. This movie is light and entertaining. One thing for sure, the story does not fit with eastern culture.

BTW, Natalie Portman looks beautiful. She can play her cast very good; independent woman who fears of having a relationship. And Ashton Kutcher looks handsome, certainly as always. :P
