I'd add this to my movie collection...
Great move by the movie execs to replace Tom Cruise with Angelina Jolie...

My husband and I had a date afternoon. Initially, we planned to watch the King's Speech but when we got there, we were 1/2 hour late and we needed to watch a movie that started at that second so we can make it back in time to pick up the kids from school. So we ended up watching No Strings Attached. Okay with a cast including, Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Kline, Cary Elwes, Ludicrus, and Mindy Kaling (the Office), one would expect this movie to be more entertaining than it was. Portman and Kutcher would have chemistry but then certain scenes very dull. Many of the actors I felt couldn't carry out the writing... I don't know if it was the writing or the actor's ill delivery of punch lines. Great actors but didn't dance well with each other. It was entertaining at moments but I felt the movie did not come together. It's just a "wanna be" to the classic romantic comedies. I saw a glimpse of Portman's comedy skills and there is something there. Hope a better vehicle comes a long for her. I was so sad to have wasted my money watching this film in the theaters. Watch this movie at home when it comes out on DVD.
Oh, I loved how they used music of past to dictate each time marker. Like the first song , it was I think 10 years ago and you hear "I want to sex you up" by Color me bad... the music soundtrack was good.
