No Strings Attached

Valentine’s Day, so naturally I have to accompany Ivy to see a romantic comedy.  No Strings Attached is actually classified as 15, but that’s more because of the ideas expressed than because of anything visual.  The film attempts to turn the more common scenario of man wanting sex but no relationship on its head – here, the man falls in love but the girl wants just sex.  Of course, she gradually changes her mind, and towards the end she’s desperate to get him and keep him, while he has (maybe) cooled.  Expect normal characterisations, particularly of hospital staff, life-styles which don’t bear much resemblance to normal life, and occasional amusing incidents.  Nothing to write home about.  It will be forgotten by next month, never mind next Valentine’s Day.
