New Release: No Strings Attached DVD and Blu-ray

No Strings AttachedRomantic comedy No Strings Attached, starring Academy Award winner Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Ashton Kutcher (Killers), arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on May 10, 2011, from Paramount Home Entertainment.

In the R-rated romance, Portman and Kutcher play friends with benefits, but things start to get complicated when they begin to wonder if there could be more to their relationship. The movie has good comedy pedigree, directed by Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) and starring Kevin Kline (The Extra Man), Cary Elwes (Robin Hood: Men in Tights), Lake Bell (It’s Complicated) and Mindy Kaling (TV’s The Office).

The film grossed a nice $70 million in theaters even though it got mixed reviews from ciritcs. Richard Roeper said it’s, “one of the better romantic comedies in the last couple of years,” but New York Post‘s Lou Lumenick said, “The movie quickly sinks into a terminal case of the cutes and extreme predictability.” Ouch, but then again, how many romantic comedies aren’t cute and predictable?

The DVD was priced at $19.99 and includes these special features:

  • commentary with Reitman
  • deleted scenes
  • alternate story lines
  • featurette “Sex Friends: Getting Together”
  • and featurette “Inside the Sassy Halls of Secret High.”

The Blu-ray is a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack priced at $29.99. Its special features menu is the same except it also has:

  • featurette “Modern Love: The Dos and Don’ts”
  • and a downloadable digital copy of the film.
