The Ruby Review: No Strings Attached

No Strings Attached: 3.5 stars

From the trailer, this movie appears to be just another romantic comedy, with a meaningless plot and lots of gorgeous people. But the lack of a date for winter formal led me to this adorable movie! Ashton Kutcher plays the predictable cutie, who seems like an airhead but really has a heart of gold, and Natalie Portman portrays his emotionally guarded childhood friend who can't help falling for him. The first part of the movie is a fun distraction from reality, with the couple 'using each other for sex' and nothing more. But as you can guess, that doesn't work out and it blossoms into a perfect love story. Highlight was the amazing homes they live in and the cars they drive; I guarantee you you'll be jealous. -R.
