I cannot get over Natalie Portman’s beauty.  She is so gorgeous and talented and I love her, and I am very happy for her for winning the Oscar!  I called it in our podcast. 😉


My not-so-guilty pleasure

I am 100% guilty of loving chick flicks.  And really, what girl isn’t?  You can say all you want that they’re cheesy and predictable and unrealistic, but…isn’t that the point?  Which brings me to what I did on this wonderful Saturday night…

(I would just like to point out that in Googling “No Strings Attached” for a picture of the poster, all that came up at first was pictures of the N’Sync album cover. Love it.)

When I first saw the preview for this movie, I honestly thought it looked completely silly and ridiculous and stupid.  But as the trailer began to play more and more during every TV show I seemed to watch, it started growing on me.  I would have eventually seen it anyway, as Ashton Kutcher is my childhood crush, therefore my crush forever.  I can’t not see his movies.  As far as Natalie Portman goes, I recently saw Black Swan (which was quite different from this one) and fell in love with her and her unfair beauty.  I’m a little late on that train, but oh well.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie.  It was everything I thought it would be, cheesy with a predictable fairy tale ending.  I saw it with my sister and my best friend, and it was a classic chick flick experience.  We knew how the movie would end the whole time, but it didn’t stop us from melting at Ashton saying, “If you come any closer, I’m never letting you go.” etc. etc.

I doubt she’ll nab a Golden Globe for this one, but Natalie Portman is still beautiful and talented… and lucky for getting to work with Ashton Kutcher. Ha! The movie was funny, cheesy and simple… but overall enjoyable and made for a good Saturday night!
