No strings Attached

We meet Adam (Ashton Kutcher) and Emma (Natalie Portman) in a series of prologues - 15 years ago, 5 years ago, 1 year ago - that lay the groundwork for their friendship.

They meet at summer camp, where a young Adam (Dylan Hayes) asks young Emma (Stefanie Scott), "Can I finger you?"

It's a ribald start to a film that quickly becomes more formulaic than you expect, though in a not-entirely-unenjoyable way.

Emma is a doctor and has no time for the emotional entanglements of being boyfriend and girlfriend; Adam, who works on a High School Musical-style teen show, just wants a sympathy root since he found out his dad Alvin (Kevin Kline), a childish soap star, is schtupping his ex-girlfriend.
