Storyline

Occasionally in the 15 years since summer camp, Adam and Emma cross paths. When he discovers that an ex-girlfriend is living with his dad, he gets drunk, calls every woman in his cell phone contact list, and ends up passed out naked in her living room. By this time, she's a medical resident in L.A. and he's a gopher on a "Glee"-like TV series, hoping to be a writer. She guards her emotions (calling her father's funeral "a thing"), so after a quick shag in the moments she has before leaving for the hospital, she asks if he wants a no-strings-attached, sex-only relationship, without romance or complications. A prescription for fun or for disaster? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Ashton Kutcher later admitted in a interview that he hated doing the sex scenes with Natalie Portman because sex scenes in movies take so long and are tedious to do. In an interview with the online magazine Mirror he said, "But despite his sultry ­co-star, Ashton says he found ­filming tough going.

"I was shooting so many sex scenes I was getting tired of it," he says. "I never thought that anything related to sex would be something I'd get tired of!

"You're there and you're doing the scene and you're like, 'Do we have to shoot another sex scene?' See more »

Thank God We Got In For Free
11 February 2011 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

What an awful, non-funny, crass, stupid movie. Don't waste your money...and if you get the chance to see it for free...don't waste your time. It's that bad.

I will admit I am not a big fan of Ashton Kutcher, but surprisingly the quality of this movie had already hit the "stink" level without factoring in Ashton's acting skills. We can start with the writing, the directing, the story, etc....just pitiful.

Honestly, I would have had a more enjoyable two hours if I had walked out after the first fifteen minutes...and it wasn't just me...my date hated it as well. But I had indulged in an order of nachos and didn't want to drag those with me out into the cold, cold, Chicago night so we stayed and finished our snacks and then stayed just hoping against hope that there would be some redeemable quality to the movie..... alas.....there wasn't.
