Paramount Home Entertainment have announced that they will be releasing the romantic comedy No Strings Attached to DVD and Blu-ray on May 10, 2011. The movie will come in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack as well as have a standard DVD edition.
Yet another film I'll watch purely because of Natalie P even though it's a romcom (bleh). Kutcher I don't much care for ever since That 70's show ended. Extremely low expectations for this one. Like "Killers" expectations. Yeah that low.
I don't think it'll be that bad, heck the reviews for it really weren't that bad.
It's not a horrible movie, but it's nothing special by any means. It was alright during watching it, but afterwards it's fairly forgettable.
By no means can it be the worst rom-com around...I mean there are some bad ones out there.
Oh definitely there are worse. I've seen worse movies this year alone.
I dont understand why movies like this are getting an R rating now. Studios used to avoid it like the plague, but this Due Date and Paul all got R ratings when their target audience is in the teens. It doesnt make sense. They would of made a lot more money with a PG 13 rating....but no one seems to care anymore.
This one didn't even remotely take advantage of the R rating either. It could've been better if it did, but no...it feels very much like a PG-13 movie.
And that's a real shame to. If you're going to have a comedy (especially about sex) then you might as well live up to your R rating.
I personally wouldn't complain. I hate when comedies fall short of their potential because of a PG-13 rating holding it back. It would make more sense financially for them to go PG-13 though. This screams teen.
I have nothing against movies that go all out and be R rated funny. Like Tropic Thunder. However like JL said these movies hardly take advantage of it. The worse they do is say the F word a few times and get a little "sexy" here and there.
If its violent or something thats awesome! I hate movies that randomly have a sex scene for no apperant reason and movies that get rated R for saying the F word.
Well yeah if it's a couple F-bombs or an extra 2 second butt shot during a sex scene then yeah I couldn't give two shits about something like that. Pointless to block out a massive audience to keep an R rating but on the other hand I know some people (me included) that have skipped over certain movies in theaters because they were PG-13 when they should have been a hard R.
I can't say I've ever refused to see a movie simply based on its rating. But yes, if you haven't seen No Strings Attached, it definitely does not take advantage of it's R rating. In fact, I can't even remember much from it that would constitute an R rating typically (well, other than the general premise of it being centered around sex). Then again, I don't remember much about it. Yea, it was that forgettable.
I couldn't imagine not seeing a movie just based off of its rating. Sure some movies could do a good R rating, but just because they got something lower doesn't mean they aren't good. Nor does it mean an R rating would have made a better film. Just look at AvP. Not even an R rating would have made that movie any better. It's all about the story, and how well they use the assets they have.
Natalie Portman...my sole reason for watching a few movies. Seriously, she just makes everything better. I'll more than likely wait until it's on Netflix though. Even Portman isn't enough to justify actually buying the movie.
