Who Actually Likes These Movies?
In some of our waiting areas we’ve decided to have some televisions to help kill time, and be comfortable at the same time. The obvious question came up of, what do we even show on the TV? It got to the point where we agreed to just play movies so that it wouldn’t take much effort. However this presented a problem that proved to be tough to solve; what movies do we show?
The idea of just playing movies from a playlist when I personally watched some movies that were on the playlist, and this is when I landed on No Strings Attached watch online.
I’ll start of by saying that I’m not a huge fan of romantic comedies, but this has got to be one of the driest that I’ve encountered so far. The film’s sad attempt at sex humor and adult language is downright cringe-worthy. The only real upside that I see about this movie is that I find it funny how hard the filmmakers tries to reverse the typical gender roles.
Ashton Kutcher plays the role of some sort of wounded animal that is still reeling from being dumped by his ex, for his dad. Then we have Natalie Portman which is the cynical one that finds relationships to be pointless.
Aside from the sad plot and overall idea of the movie, I don’t have a problem with either Ashton or Natalie, but in the movie they just seemed to have no chemistry at all. They were supposed to be what you could call “friends with benefits” but they didn’t even have the buddy vibe to them.
To sum up, this movie is the exact reason why some people detest the romantic comedy category. If you want to get a better taste for the movie then just watch a couple episodes of Two and a Half Men.
