Love & Other Drugs, Review

Maggie is an alluring free spirit who won't let anyone -or anything- tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie, 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.

When I saw the trailer, two words crossed my mind: Happy End. After that I learned it is a comedy-drama, and I started having doubts about it. This kind of movie is not exactly my type, but, reading that this is the first comedy of Jake Gyllenhaal after many years, made me curious.

Well, I really liked the movie. It's been long since I saw a comedy and it was great. The actors were great too. I liked Jake Gyllenhaal in a comedy and he was really good in it. And Anne Hathaway was great too. I mostly remember her from the Princess Diaries, but she had nothing to do with it. I liked the way she played and the way her character was looking life. The dialogues were funny enough. And there were funny moments in serious situations, like the first time Jamie says "I Love You".

Ok, for being fair, I'll tell you couple reasons for not seeing the movie if you have probles with them. First of all, there is much sex. Their relationship started as phychical, so there is sex and nudity. Secondly, you may not like the points of view the characters have about life, job and relationships. And lastly, you may not like movies which have to do with serious deseases, or, in general, comedy-drama movies.

Bottom on, I liked the movie, I didn't have problems with the things I metioned above and, even though, it is not my type of movie, I have to admit, that I had a nice evening.

Extra info: The movie is based on a book about the real Jamie and the way he was selling drugs and especially the Viagra. What I don't know is if there is a real Maggie.
P.S.: Maybe it's just me who noticed and cared enough, but isn't Maggie's appartement cool??

    you said it had much sex in it, but i don't think so, it didn't bother me at all and as for the nudity they don't show anything at all..
