Starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, ‘No Strings Attached’ is a romantic–comedy movie that centers upon two friends, Emma Kurtzman and Adam Franklin, who first met each other during a summer camp many years ago but despite running into one another several time since then, always ended up losing contact. However, after a personal crisis hits Adam emotionally, he tries to deal with it by getting drunk and trying to hook up (something that goes horribly wrong) with his acquaintances.
