Summary: Love and Other Drugs lacks a true identity; it has the sex/nudity of a raunchy teen comedy, but the emotion/drama of a romantic dramedy. Respectable as it is, the film never finds the balance that humors, as well as touches the audience. Gyllenhaal and Hathaway are terrific, they both give solid performances. The rest of the film is really likable as well, except Josh Gad, who plays Jake Gyllenhaal's brother. The character was completely useless and irritating.
Excerpt: This movie turned out to be better than I thought, my sister wanted to see this movie and so well I gave it a watch. I was suprised at the Maggie (played by Anne Hataway) story, it was something really different for a romantic comedy movie. The quality is really good with an image that has natural color and sharpness.
Summary: As far as romantic comedies go, this was actually fairly good - both Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway were well cast and managed to work well together. The movie did made me feel old - as it seems to early for a movie set in the 90s to feel nostalgic, but hey, what can I do? Overall, not too bad and better than I was expecting.
Excerpt: I loved the premise of this movie, that love conquers all obstacles. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jamie, a slacker who thinks he is a gift for all women. After indiscretions at work get him fired, Jamie decides to prove his family wrong for calling out his caveman ways by going to pharmaceutical sales training. Jamie eventually meets Anne Hattaway's Maggie, a young artist weighed down with Parkinson's Disease.
Summary: Jake Gyllenhaal was amazing here, Anne Hathaway was good as well. Had some really interesting but sometimes exaggerated screenplay. Soundtrack was decent and direction sometimes leaning towards the romance than the nature of the job. Overall, Love and Other Drugs was a decent picture about love, sacrifices, and a bit of drugs.
Summary: A great date movie. Well acted by Gyllenhaal and Hathaway. The characters are developed well and I like the time period. I am not attracted Hathaway but I was still entertained. Pick it our a date night and enjoy.
Summary: Is this a movie about Viagra? The pharmaceutical industry? Healthcare? Parkinson's? Love? Answer: All of the above. Wait, isn't that a lot of subjects to take on for one movie? Answer: yes. It's also strange to see a movie set in the 90s and view it as "retro." I am so old. The 90s were awhile ago. Crap. This movie was really bad. Boring. Shallow. Confused. Unfocused. Badly written. Over-the-top. Schmaltz schmaltz schmaltz. Pity party. Really didn't like it.
Excerpt: I bought this as a blind buy..On sale...I like Jake and Anne, so why not. The movie wasn't a bad chick flick. It has its funny moments and Anne has graced us gratuitously with her naked body..That alone was worth the $9 price tag..The ending wasn't what I expected which is a good thing..Overall this is one that will be watched again on down the road...Acting was good..PQ and AQ were also good...I agree with other reviewers..Watch it with a loved one.
