One word: Ashton Kutcher. He's the biggest reason I won't see this movie. I've liked him enough in other things (most recently last year's Valentine's Day), and it's not his doughy-eyed, clueless look alone that pushes me away. It's more or less what his presence in a film indicates about that particular movie. In most cases it's a typical comedy with a few funny lines here and there and some off-the-cuff romance that results in everlasting love.

Watching the trailer for Kuthcer's most recent vehicle, No Strings Attached, it's obvious what's going on, and what's going to happen. While I am intrigued (and partially confused) by Natalie Portman's presence (especially after Black Swan), it's not enough to drag me to the theatre to see this one - and probably not even the video store.
This movie looks like an accidental parody of every other romantic comedy. It has the wise-cracking best guy friends, the wild and "unexpected" love interest, the shocking funny guy, etc, etc, etc. While I could go on, I'll save Interweb space like I hoard it and stop here.

If your interested*, No Strings Attached takes up space in theatres on January 21st.

*I advise against being interested.

I'm actually slightly surprised by this as I didn't think the trailer looked too bad. Then again, I think Natalie Portman and I are meant to be together ...

Haha. I think it has potential to be the worst THIS particualr month. As for yours and Natalie Portman's love affair, I believe it's the prequel to her offing herself and going crazy in 'Black Swan'. Well done. You've killed America's sweetheart.
