When 14-year-old Emma Kurtzman (Natalie Portman) turned down the awkward, teenage advances of Adam Franklin (Ashton Kutcher) outside of the Big Lodge at Camp Weehawken, neither of them had any clue about real, adult sex. But the opposite is true when their paths cross and they end up in bed having sex - really good sex.
As all Emma’s relationships end on the rocks, just as Adam has sworn them off, mostly because his once famous television star dad (Kevin Kline) is now dating Adam’s most recent ex-girlfriend, the two decide to forego the accompanying emotional muddle of a relationship and just be friends with benefits. "No strings attached" means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers, no baby voices. It means they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don't fall in love.
What starts out as a perfect solution to physical need becomes a little more tricky when Adam inadvertently brings his feelings to bed (and to the hospital closet, the back seat of the car and just about anywhere that provides horizontal support). Eventually, both wind up trying to untangle the strings they were trying to avoid altogether while struggling to answer one key question: can two friends have sex without love getting in the way?
