No Strings Attached

Over Easter Break I was flipping through the channels and stumbled upon the movie No Strings Attached starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman. I first saw this romcom in 2011 when it was released, I remember really liking it however all I remembered from it was that it was about two longtime friends who decided to enter into a casual contractual agreement to just have sex with no strings attached. In recently re-watching the movie I have gained a whole new perspective to the story. Typically in relationships like these it is the girl who craves the commitment and falls in love first and it takes some persuading for the boy to finally decide to settle down, however this movie completely shatters that stereotype. Natalie Portman plays the workaholic who truly enjoys having someone in her bed without the commitment, and she shuts down any prospect of romance. Ashton Kutcher plays the wide-eyed hopeless romantic who catches a bad case of the feelings. Watching this unique love story unfold was refreshing. It was refreshing to see a man fall in love for once and to have to work so hard to prove himself. Ashton Kutcher made me believe in love again.
