    Review: 'No Strings Attached' Has Plenty Of Strings Attached

    It's fair to say that the state of the modern romantic-comedy is a dismal one. In the era of "Leap Year," "The Ugly Truth" and "Confessions of a Shopaholic" -- where the heroes and heroines behave in a way unrecognizable to actual human beings, the plots are interchangable and contrived, and the com...
