The very pregnant Natalie Portman is making the rounds these days to promote her new movie that explores the question of whether there's any such thing as consequence-free sex. Let that sink in for a moment.
New and Noteworthy
'No Strings Attached' (R)
Starring: Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Cary Elwes, Kevin Kline, Greta Gerwig
Directed by: Ivan Reitman
What's It About? Portman and Kutcher play old friends who decide to have a purely sexual relationship -- no romance allowed. But of course, it's never that easy, at least not in the movies.
Why Should You See It? Portman lets her inner-'Black Swan' loose, offering the kind of raunchy, funny, grown-up performance that past roles have only hinted at. Kutcher remains a pro at light comedy. Veteran comedy director Ivan Reitman, whose work has felt sluggish in recent years, seems invigorated by these youngsters and their fresher, blunter take on romance.
