Product Description

Product Description

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.

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

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.

This is a good film, tackling a not so well known subject - in relation to age-wise that is. I found it rather enlightening, obviously sad at times, but also showing positives. I enjoyed it & the acting is really good.

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.

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.

Jake Gyllenhaal dates anne hathaway .He is a pharmaceutical sales rep and she has parkinson's disease.
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.

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!

Someone i felt needed to balance up some of the poorer reviews. This is one hell of an enjoyable film and one i have watched repeatedly over the last couple of weeks. Anne Hathaway is magic and if this was acting then it was so natural.The instance of black and white video playback reminded me of Ingrid Bergman in CASABLANCA just as beautiful, just as touching. Jake makes an entirely believable shallow individual touched finally by the love of one wonderful woman.
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!!

Basically a feel good movie about the effect a girl with Parkinson's disease has on a self centered drugs salesman. The humour, particularly at the beginning was a little juvenile, but as the relationship develops, its about how he addresses her disability and how this plays out is quite moving. Much of this is down to the acting of Anne Hathaway who is excellent as the girl with the disability
