A minor hit when it was dropped into theaters in late January (as opposed to Valentine’s Day), No Strings Attached will see its release as a BD/DVD combo pack on May 10. So just as the school year ends and summer lovin’ begins, it will be done so with “no strings attached.”
Academy Award winner Natalie Portman (Black Swan) and Ashton Kutcher star in this R-rated romantic comedy, directed by Ivan Reitman, that gives an “intimate look” at the ups and down of being sex buddies.
To promote the disc, Paramount Home Entertainment has teamed with online dating and relationship site PerfectMatch.com. An insert in the Blu-ray package will offer singles looking to pursue their own modern-day relationship a free three-month premium subscription to PerfectMatch ($179 value).
The DVD and BD release will include a commentary from director Ivan Reitman, two featurettes (Sex Friends: Getting Together and Inside the Sassy Halls of Secret High), deleted scenes and alternate storylines. The BD comes with a single exclusive, a featurette titled Modern Love.
The DVD will be priced to own at $19.99, while the combo release will retail for $29.99.
Lifelong friends Emma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) take their relationship to the next level by having sex. Afraid of ruining their friendship, the new lovers make a pact to keep things purely physical, with no fighting, no jealousy and no expectations. Emma and Adam pledge to do whatever they want, wherever they want, as long as they do not fall in love. The question then becomes, which one will fall first?
