Box Office
Wade Major quote iconUnless the Hangover and Wedding Crashers set has suddenly developed a taste for romances that aim to elicit more tears than belly laughs, even Portman's deft efforts will prove insufficient to get much love from filmgoers.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconNo Strings Attached isn't a terrible movie, but there's finally something gruelling in its commitment to generic conventions: maybe if crazy old Emma was behind the camera, it wouldn't cling so desperately to those boring, safe old tropes.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe film is pleasant enough, if inconsequential, and will do nothing to help or hurt the careers of those involved.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconThe film isn't without its charms and it does have some funny moments and lines of dialogue.

Tomatometer quote iconIt benefits from the presence of Natalie Portman and director Ivan Reitman's steady hand, but No Strings Attached doesn't have the courage or conviction to follow through on its ribald premise.
