What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Lust bust in name of love, pity about cheesy end
Laetitia Pople Prettige prent oor vriende met voordele
Todd McCarthy This won't tug the heartstrings
Wade Major Unless 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.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Adam Nayman No 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.
James Berardinelli The film is pleasant enough, if inconsequential, and will do nothing to help or hurt the careers of those involved.
C. Fuchs The film isn't without its charms and it does have some funny moments and lines of dialogue.
Tomatometer It 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.
