No Strings attached quotes brings absolutely nothing new to the romantic comedy genre. The story is pretty much a cookie-cutter plot with some good snappy one liners thrown in to bring in the much needed laughter.

This thinly stretched plot has been done over so many times that any audience watching it will know it off by heart. The only thing that saves it from total wasteland is the chemistry of the lead actors and the strong supporting cast.

Verdict: This is only recommended to the most die-hard fans of romantic comedies or if you just want to switch off your brain and watch some eye candy on display.
