Maggie (Hathaway) is an alluring free spirit who won't let anyone--or anything--tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with the ladies and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie's evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love.

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

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.
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.
He is insensitive,rude,crude and so is she but after an intial meeting where they dont get along
they fall in love.Plenty of naked bodies in this film but you mainly remember the love story at the end
which shows the tale told was a good one.
My wife watched the film and considering the swearing, sex and masturbation all filmed "in the best possible taste" she really enjoyed it. The contradiction between the success of viagra (recreational use emphasised) when compared with the lack of a cure for Parkinsons where lives are ravaged is brought home to add the serious message to the film. If nothing else i will look on donating to Parkinsons charities in a whole different light.
The director Edward Zwick has made some great films; many i have steered away from because of poor reviews THE LAST SAMURAI being one of them. It now figures in my top films and this one will be up there as well. Call me shallow but i know when a film has moved me..yes it made me smile and made me get all water eyed!!
