No Strings Attached (2011)


The Untitled Ivan Reitman Project is now known as No Stings. I was once titled ‘Friends with Benefits’ before that was taken by another film, and has been rumored to be called “F**k Buddies.”

The story involves a couple who start out only wanting a physical relationship with each other before discovering that they have feelings for each other. Neither knows the true feelings of the other and has to hide it so that they don’t ruin what they have going.

Happens to me all the time.


The Scoop

Directed by, wait for it, Ivan Reitman, of Ghostbusters fame, the currently untitled project stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. She would be the best f**k buddy ever.

Natalie Portman wouldn’t be so bad either.

SNAP!! Got you again, Ash hole Kutcher! And Again!

Anyways, Reitman, after a series of great films in the 80’s, hasn’t exactly been on fire as of late. He last directed My Super Ex-Girlfriend, and before that Evolution. How the hell did he direct Ghostbusters, Stripes, and Meatballs? Here’s hoping he gets some of that old magic back.

Who’s It For?

I would think if the title is F**k Buddies it would be R, but it could go mainstream (i.e. watered down crap) and be PG-13.

Movie Release Date

January 21, 2011.

Who’s In It?

Natalie Portman … Emma
Ashton Kutcher … Adam
Kevin Kline
Cary Elwes

Greta Gerwig
Talia Balsam … Sandra Kurtzman

Interesting Fact

If we were to combine the hotness of the cast for this and the ‘other’ Friends with Benefits movie, which stars Emma Stone and Mila Kunis, my seat, as well as that of the fifteen in every direction around mine, would be sticky within 15 minutes of the start of the movie.

Cause I’d spill my drink.

What’s Good About It?

Natalie Portman.

What’s Bad About It?

Ashton Kutcher.

Our Clever Prediction

I think it would be funny to just leave it unnamed. Funnier than anything Ivan Reitman’s done in 20 years, and funny that Ashton Kutcher’s ever done.

I will have to see it, just to see Natalie Portman doing it.

And by doing it I mean act.

I see the box office being relatively low. Kutcher has no drawing power, and the concept looks too boring to make any waves. And I don’t see the critics liking this.

Oh, and by act I mean have sex. All female emotion is fake!!!
