From Amazon.co.uk

Last paired up for Brokeback Mountain, Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal reunite for this romantic take on Jamie Reidy's Hard Sell. The story takes place in the 1990s when a certain blue pill made its debut. Gyllenhaal's Jamie, a smooth-talking pharmaceutical rep, meets Hathaway's Maggie, an aspiring artist, while trying to persuade her physician (Hank Azaria) to carry Pfizer products. The attraction is instant, but Jamie prefers the thrill of the chase to anything more meaningful. While he and his partner (Oliver Platt, Azaria's Huff co-star) work on a transfer from Ohio to Illinois, Jake and Maggie's fling develops into a relationship. On the comic side, Jamie battles with a rival rep (Gabriel Macht), switches from Zoloft to Viagra, and gains a roommate in his socially inept brother (Josh Gad, good value). On the dramatic side, he gets a glimpse of Maggie's world, which involves trips to Canada for medication and the temporary loss of motor skills (the screenplay fails to explain how she can afford such a spacious loft). Not counting shows like Thirtysomething, Edward Zwick remains best known for docudramas like Defiance, and Love and Other Drugs marks a new direction. The dialogue is snappy and the actors are game--both show a fair amount of skin--but the two halves of the film make for an awkward fit. Still, it's nice to see Gyllenhaal cut loose for a change. If Hathaway gives a more self-conscious performance, she brings the requisite amount of spirit and dignity to her role. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Romantic comedy starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, based on the non-fiction book Hard Sell The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman by Jamie Reidy. Jamie Gyllenhaal is an ambitious and promiscuous pharmaceutical salesman who has always kept his emotions firmly in check as he uses his infallible charm to get his way in his job and in his encounters with women. But when he meets free-spirited artist Maggie Hathaway, he is perplexed to find that his usual box of tricks has little effect. Before long he has become hopelessly infatuated with her, but there is a reason why she wont let him get close, as Jamie is about to discover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film.. 1 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Very good film and well acted as well. The treatment in the film of the onset and early stages of Parkinsons was very correct and quite moving indeed. Anne Hathaway is really superb. I declare this through experience; my wife suffers from this disease.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but sad 11 April 2013
By SNTM
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I laughed and cried at this film, it is essentially a chick flick, but funny enough that if you make your other half watch it he won't complain TOO much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film for a girls night! 25 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Saw this at the cinema with friends, and really enjoyed it, so naturally I had to buy it on DVD.

There is humour and fun throughout, but there are also moments of seriousness, and I felt that the issues of Parkinsons disease were dealt with with the right amount of balance and insight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable watch 19 Aug 2013
By Laura W TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It's taken me a while to get round to watching this film. I remember when it first came out I was put off by the reviews. However, I enjoyed it. My husband watched it with me and he is not one for rom/coms but he enjoyed it as well.

It's written and directed by Edward Zwick and he was responsible for Thirtysomething, one of my favourite programmes so I recognised some aspects as being reminiscent of thirtysomething, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much.

I can't say I'm a big fan of Jake Gyllenhaal. I haven't watched many of his films but he coped well with the comedy element in this film but I felt not so much with the emotional elements. Anne Hathaway was excellent, she out-acted Gyllenhaal in my opinion.

It's a long film. Possibly too long and I felt the inevitable 'break up' needed more emotion and the ending lacked something only in that I wasn't convinced how much Jamie was missing Maggie and cut-up by their split. Yes it's a good ending but I thought it could have been better.

All in all a really good watch and a little different to the normal rom/com due to the inclusion of Maggie's character suffering from Parkinson's Disease. I liked the 'alternative convention' that Maggie attended which featured real life sufferers of the disease.

The music in the film was also good including the end song featuring Vonda Shepard..the singer from another of my favourite programmes, Ally McBeal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Because your love is my drug 6 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
Described by its cast and crew as an "emoti-com", this is one film that packed a bit more of a punch than most of the romance films that were released last year. Set in the fascinating back drop of the '90s pharmaceutical world, Jamie (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a cocky, womanising, fast-rising star in Pfizer and happens across Maggie (Anne Hathaway) during one of his slightly less ethical exploits.

He could have almost any woman he wants, yet somehow he can't quite shift her; she is free-spirited, opinionated and has her own troubles that have lead her to avoid relationships entirely. This indeed is a story about "love and other drugs", but more than that it is about how love can change us and how we see the world.
