The movie dwells on the issue of if sex friends can be best friends or not? No Strings Attached is the new comedy directed by Ivan Reitman stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher and deals with the debatable question. And since like any other romantic comedy it has a similar ending to it.

When Ashton Kutcher playing Adam meets Natalie Portman playing Emma, their long time acquaintance is reignited and become close friends. As an assistant to a high profile star, Adam is smitten with Emma, who has changed into a workaholic and seems like is even allergic to relationships. And what starts as a benefit arrangement becomes turns into sex friends relationship with one rule- not to fall in love. Hence the question, will their relationship survive? Same old story but new was to present. The chemistry between Portman and Kutcher is well cooked up but not a good swallow. What could have been a well directed Kate Hudson-Dane Cook casual sex comedy seems to be a downer directed by a well known master who has in the past directed movies like Ghostbusters, Kindergarten Cop and Stripes.

Passable on its own front the movie could be well missed if you are busy in work. Good backup and hilarious punches are felt every now and then with the help of Kevin Kline, Lake Bell, Mindy Kaling, Greta Gerwig and Jake Johnson. But the story seems to lasting more than one could bear at times. But with some the usual emotionally distant girl and more than romantic guy just doesn't work. Thus, a waste of star cast on a lame story, which other wise would have been a good movie to enjoy.
