No Strings Attached (2011)

Image result for no strings attachedA guy and a girl enter a relationship based purely on sex. But how long will it be until they want something more?

This was another film I avoided quite significantly for around three years or so. I don’t tend to like romantic comedies all that much and as a result I only came across this movie when it popped up on BBCi Player. Otherwise, I don’t think I would have watched this film under my own steam.

It is a film in the vein of Friends with Benefits, which was released in the same year. To be honest,  while there were a few funny moments in this film it was all overriden by a predictability which mars the genre throughout.

None of the relationships felt realistic within the film and as a result it dragged significantly in places. I think it did try to be funny and there were a few awkward laugh moments but that was pretty much it. I think this is one of those films which can ideally help a person turn their brain off for about 90 minutes with no undue consequences. The relationships in the film just felt awkward and clumsy.

If you want a film to watch to help you switch your brain off or one to watch for a night in then by all means this is one to choose. The attempts to build a memorable relationship between the two leads by the film’s end came across as a massively poor effort.

MY RATING: **.5 / *****
