No Strings Attached

In search of mindless entertainment last weekend, we decided to watch No Strings Attached.

It was way better than it had any right to be. I mean, friends with benefits romcom starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher? Sure, it’s going to be pretty to look at. We weren’t expecting it to also be charming and slightly witty.

It had its problems, to be sure; the characters were one-dimensional at best – Emma self-destructively flawed, Adam the bumbling saint. Everyone else… well they didn’t even rise to the level of “characters” – they were archetypes in support of the main characters.

But it was entertaining if you were willing to turn off your brain. And pretty to look at.
