No Strings Attached Reviews
Posted 01.21.11 by reelz
The best that can be said about No Strings Attached? It's unlikely to damage Natalie Portman's Oscar Best Actress chances.
"...a genial if overlong romantic comedy..."
— Justin Chang, Variety
"It all adds up to standard-issue Ivan Reitman product, meaning that it'll make perfectly satisfactory basic-cable viewing in two or three years, so long as you never ask why you don't have any feelings of lust or sympathy toward the main couple."
— Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"There are humorous moments, and it's a bit less bland than its contemporaries."
— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"What's in this cliché grab bag for moviegoers? Well, Portman and Kutcher are a cute mismatch. She's short to his tall, sassy to his sweet, etc. I dried up here. So does the movie."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It has a handful of memorable comedic set pieces and more quotable one-liners than anticipated. It just needs a few more invisible strings to tie its disconnected scenes and crass observations together into a cohesive movie."
— Sean O'Connell, filmcritic.com
