After the demands "Black Swan" placed on her, Natalie Portman was entitled to an easier job, and she found one in this friends-with-benefits comedy directed by Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters").
She and Ashton Kutcher play pals who step into the area of physical intimacy, making an agreement that they won't get serious about each other ... and she's especially adamant about it, given the working hours she keeps as a doctor. Naturally, he develops deeper feelings for her, and problems result. Kevin Kline plays Kutcher's father in a supporting cast that also includes Greta Gerwig ("Greenberg") and Lake Bell.
