His world changes when he meets childhood friend Emma, played by Natalie Portman who is a resident in a community hospital. They unconsciously fall in love with each other amidst Emma’s strange contention that no two people are meant to be with each other forever.

Description: Emma and Adam are childhood friends who have lost contact with each other after being apart for several years. In time, they meet again and fall in love despite Emma’s weird belief in the rules of affection.
Review: It’s amazing to observe the development of film genres in this modern world. Romance movies are among those categories which have evolved the greatest. No Strings Attached is a strong example of romantic movies that have successfully employed light comedy as its mate. I thought that mixing it with the comedy element brought by the powerful performance of Ashton Kutcher made it appeal to viewers in different territories.
The plot was uniquely charming as it used many common elements that a romantic story should have. One particular scene that stood out to reflect such elements would probably be at the beginning of the picture where Kutcher and Portman are depicted as childhood friends. It gives the spectators a feeling of anticipation as to how the two characters would end up happily ever after. In other films, elements like this can be dragging mainly because it has been utilized countless times, but No Strings Attached pulled off what I believed to be a difficult feat.
This picture is strongly recommended for those deeply in love because believe it or not, it made me fall in love with my boyfriend more after an hour of viewing time. It works magic on any individual searching for inspiration in love. The perfect choice of setting coupled with a marvelous working cast provides an effective add-on in bringing to life a story that everybody would surely admire.
To the critics putting this movie downcast, I beg you to assess the motion picture once more and if you still incessantly rate it lowly then you perhaps have a love life that is dull as a withering oak leaf in the winter.
