Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis make the same movie

Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, the Jewish stars of the acclaimed 2010 film Black Swan, have apparently made two different versions of the same movie. As Blind Film Critic so clearly depicts in this trailer mashup of No Strings Attached and Friends With Benefits, these films are identical right down to the camera angles.

Both flicks are about a pair of hetero friends who decide to have sex and just remain friends. Hijinks, fights, and the eventual realization that they totally love each other ensue.

Is there something significant about the fact that the female leads cast in the twin films about so-called "modern sex trends" are high profile Jewesses? Or do I just enjoy reading too much into pop culture coincidences? Talk amongst yourselves.
