Here’s a red band trailer for No Strings Attached, the Ashton Kutcher-Natalie Portman comedy which Paramount Pictures releases January 21.

The Friends With Benefits movie with Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake looks soooo much better.
OMG. Stupidest F-ing movie ever. And that’s just the trailer. AK has got to be the worst psuedo star on the planet. Poor Natalie.
Poor Natalie? Please. Nobody forced her to make this crap. I’m sure she’s crying all the way to the bank.
Painful with a capital P.
There goes Natalie’s OSCAR !! – didn’t a terrible “Eddie Murphy” release right at Oscar time put the kabootz on that one?
You’re thinking of Norbit, I think. This isn’t quite as embarrassing as that, and Portman’s so good in Black Swan this might not matter. But pretty awkward timing.
this looks so unfunny for a studio comedy…
Oh no, Natalie’s pulling a Norbit…
I can’t wait to see this. Sucker for this type of film.
Kids, this pic looks like a real stinker.
Read this script, the BL draft called “Fuckbuddies” by Liz Meriweather. I’m not partial to female writers (not cos I’m misogynist – I just DON’T like them) but this was fucking hilarious. Irreverent (not gross-out) humor from the page 1 debate on why it’s called being fuckbuddies up until the final sequence. Sure, the pacing was a bit off, the second act dragged on a little long, but when I read a comedy I look for laughs. And this script had me laughing out loud for 120 pages. I don’t know what they turned that script into when cameras rolled, but seriously, this script was a home-run for someone who’s predisposed to hate it.
Actually, you are a misogynist.
“I’m not a misogynist- I just DON’T like them…” The definition of a misogynist is that you don’t like women. If you generalize a statement that you don’t like female writers, you make the false assumption that women writers are all the same or that they all share the same sensibilities, like we all write romantic comedies all the time.
It’s like saying I’m not a racist, I just don’t like black people.
Nice one, Chris.
The lady doth protest too much, “Chris.”
So is this Natalie Portman’s Boat Trip/Catwoman etc?
The question is are Portman and Kevin Klein slumming, or is Ashton Kutcher finally in a half decent movie? The consensus seems to be the former.
Saying is this Natalie’s “Catwoman” compares her to Halle Berry. Natalie Portman is NO Halle Berry.
the question is, who’s a worse actor in this?
Agree with the first post.. The Friends With Benefits movie looks 1000% more interesting and better than this. Desperation to release a redband trailer 2 weeks before the film is supposed to hit theaters. I never even heard of this film until today. Now I know why.
Yo, numbskulls, Ivan Reitman directed that. Respect, please. It doesn’t look “painful” or “OMG, stupidest movie ever, sincerely, super bitch bag.” It looks… enjoyable. Not bad. Not terrible. Not great either. Just enjoyable. Chill out. And, oh, yeah, Ashton Kutcher is still in movies because he should be. He has very little range, but he’s good at what he does.
Hey genius, Ivan Reitman also directed My Super Ex-Girlfriend and hasn’t made a decent film since the Clinton administration. You’re the one who needs to chill. It’s not our fault you have no taste in movies and enthusiastically consume whatever slop is served up to you.
This is such a miss.
Men won’t want to see it because it looks like a boring relationship movie.
Women won’t want to see it because it doesn’t look romantic.
Don’t you people realize that this is brilliant it was written by a hot female blogger how can you not see the genius of it? You also overlook the comedic directorial mastery of Ivan Reitman. Shame on all of you, apologize immediately for your stupidity.
Not a very high standard for what constitutes a “hot” trailer, huh?
Hmmm… you guys are so negative!
I just watched this and thought it looked really funny. I like Ashton and Portman and it looks like they have some good chemistry together. Definitely had some funny lines, I’m going to check it out.
I am confused why one of these movies hasn’t moved. The Timberlake movie is the same thing, and comes out weeks after.
And frankly I want to see neither of them.
Another twenty-something romantic angst movie, chock full o’ the word ‘fuck’ as a comedic device.
If the trailer shows the ‘best’ scenes, I can’t imagine how bad the others play. C’mon Hollywood. Stop trying to clone Apatow pictures and write some original, witty dialogue. I actually felt sorry for Natalie when she dropped the ‘F’ bomb in the restaurant scene.
I’m sorry but I really don’t mean to sound like a hater which most posters do on this site just to spite popular opinion whether its negative or positive…but this really does look like canned-wannabe provactive shit.
For one thing I am so sick and tired of self conscious actors and their no nudity clauses. Sexy lite doesn’t interest me in the least bit. We get shots of her back and Ashton strategically covering the sides of her breast with his palms. What the hell?! You’re not 12 years old anymore. And most importantly I don’t buy these people. Which the death knell for any rom-com. Good luck. The Timberlake-Kunis movie looks waaaaaaay better.
I won’t see it mostly because I abhor Ashton Kutcher. He is just not likable. This could of been a hit if say anyone else had Kutchers role in this.
It looks like all those dead birds are right, we’re doomed. More like
“He has very little range, but he’s good at what he does.” is the best quote since “the food is so bad and the portions are so small!”
Love all the haters declaring this an awful movie.
They would have said the exact same thing about Something About Mary.
As Richard Dawson used to say, “Survey Says…” The Box Office will tell the tale.
Funny trailer, several laugh lines, Natalie Portman is hot, Kutcher doing what he does best.
R-Rated romcom WIN.
Good for Paramount. They finally made a romantic comedy not directed by Nancy Meyers and starring Kate Hudson.
Whoops. Richard Dawson. Not Bob Barker.
