Love and Other Drugs Review

28 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Ed Zwick abandons the world of conflicted African diamond smugglers and 18th century westerners indoctrinated into the ways of the samurai, for a romantic character piece which revolves around the world of pills, thrills and heartaches.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as young, horny salesman Jamie Randall who, having been fired from his previous job after being caught in an uncompromising position with his boss’s wife, manages to secure a position (thanks to his younger and incredibly successful brother) selling pharmaceutical products for medical company Pfizer. Crashing a patent’s appointment with a doctor he’s trying to sell to, it’s there where he meets his romantic match in Maggie (Anne Hathaway) with whom he becomes involved. A similar free sprit to himself, she’s a struggling artist working as waitress to make ends meet (with that traditional Hollywood contrivance of owning a massive loft conversation), who is also battling »

Love and Other Drugs Review

29 November 2010 3:18 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Love and Other Drugs Directed by: Edward Zwick Written by: Charles Randolph, Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Josh Gad Love and Other Drugs has an immediate leg-up on its romcom competition in that it actually has a halfway decent premise. Set against the backdrop of the nineties pharmaceutical boom, and with a charismatic Jake Gyllenhaal shucking Zoloft and Viagra for the umbrella company Pfizer (drugs which today are so commonplace that Microsoft Office automatically capitalized them for me), there is the tantalizing potential that Love and Other Drugs may do more than play it safe. Now consider Anne Hathaway as an artsy early-onset Parkinson’s victim and the hard R for nudity, and it feels as though the filmmakers are genuinely determined to take a few risks — and they do, but not necessarily in the right places. Much of Love and Other Drugs feels frustratingly formulaic, »

Love and Other Drugs

Directed by: Edward Zwick

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Josh Gad, Hank Azaria

Running Time: 1 hr 53 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: November 24, 2010

Plot: A hotshot pharmaceutical salesman (Gyllenhaal) falls for a charismatic insecure young woman (Hathaway) with Parkinson’s.

Who’S It For? Any romantic of proper age could enjoy Love and Other Drugs, but this one is especially for the couples. Love and Other Drugs would make for a good warming romance for a cold winter trip to the multiplex.

Expectations: Gyllenhaal and Hathaway had another special relationship in the acclaimed Brokeback Mountain. Would their newest get-together, one based off a memoir of a Viagra salesman, have a heavy political tone to it? Or would this adaptation just stick strictly to the couple’s inevitable chemistry?

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

Jake Gyllenhaal as Jamie Randall: Slick in both the workplace and the bedroom, Jamie’s imperfections »

Love and Other Drugs Review

26 November 2010 12:58 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Love and Other Drugs is about people in the midst of their lives who arrive at somewhere precious by accident. It’s about ambition and commerce, because life is about ambition and commerce, but it soon transmutes into a love story, because life is often that, too. Love becomes, for two people, the great challenge and the great educator, and at every step of this beautiful film, we believe it.

There are a number of things to like about Edward Zwick‘s Love and Other Drugs, so it seems churlish to quibble about the problems.

But those foibles are what keep Zwick’s nervy blend of romantic comedy and drama from being a really good movie, instead of merely a good date destination. The problems aren’t terminal, but they are persistent.

Zwick’s film, which he and cowriter Marshall Herskovitz adapted with Charles Randolph from James Reidy’s book, »

6 Things About Love And Other Drugs

25 November 2010 1:30 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Happy day of giving Thanks! Happy day of eating poultry, like we don't eat poultry every day in staggering quantities. Most importantly, welcome to the end of the year, the time when we all pretend like movie goers are divided into two categories: those that care awards season is coming up (Hey, you wanna see The King's Speech?) and those that don't (When's Tron: Legacy coming out, again?). Luckily, I think there's a movie out this week that will satisfy both sides of the film-going public that I'm currently writing about, director Ed Zwick's Love and Other Drugs is in theaters now and managed to be a romantic comedy that didn't make my short hairs stand on end with idiocy... … let's not think about why my short hairs respond to idiocy, let's start with my titular things.

Review: Love And Other Drugs

25 November 2010 6:03 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When promoting a new film, studios can get downright sneaky. A good case in point is Love And Other Drugs. Movie and TV screens have been flooded with trailers and commercials touting  it as a zany, romantic comedy. And the poster shows the cute stars gazing toward the camera in bed while strategically placed pillows cover up their .naughty bits.. True there is comedy and romance, but the film tackles several serious issues which may throw some filmgoers off balance. It.s a shame that the studio marketing didn.t think the public could handle some of the truly adult themes. I think these issues elevate the film above the fluff that.s being passed off as romantic comedies these days.

It.s 1996 and Jamie Randall(Jake Gyllenhaal) is an electronics  salesman cruising by on his charm and good looks. After losing this job(the boss.s girlfriend!), Jamie.s »

Title: Love and Other Drugs Director: Edward Zwick Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Josh Gad, Judy Greer, Gabriel Macht, Kate Jennings Grant Much like modern medicine, Love and Other Drugs is so close in executing the perfect remedy. By staying thorough and exploring the two captivating leads, the flick is on the right path. The 113 minute story contains aggressive dialogue that will have one’s jaw slowly dropping as they becomes emotionally connected to the characters. All the notable supporting players act as stitches in keeping this script together. They also move it along and give it a necessary spark with the timely comedic sequences and introspective moments.

Film Review: Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhaal Sell Out in Unbearable ‘Love and Other Drugs’

24 November 2010 10:49 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Love and Other Drugs” celebrates everything that is wrong with America, wrapped in a package with two “it” stars doing a disservice to their emerging careers. The love depicted is random and somewhat damaged. The drugs are simply a cynical proclamation on how great Big Pharma is.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jamie, an only-in-the-movies stud who opens the film working in a stereo store in the mid-1990s (lots of boom box jokes). He is sacked for diddling a co-worker while he should be selling components, even though he’s the top salesman. He laments his fate back at home with brother Josh (Josh Gad), physician father (George Segal) and mother (the late Jill Clayburgh, deserving better). Apparently the doofus Josh is a software millionaire (the new go-to character) and has connections that can get Jamie a job as a pharmaceutical salesman.

He begins training with Pfizer Pharmaceutical. »

Love & Other Drugs: A Cure For the Common Cynic

24 November 2010 8:15 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You can learn a lot about Love & Other Drugs from simply watching the trailer. There's sex. There's Viagra. There's crying. There's at least one very over-the-top sappy scene in which Jake Gyllenhaal's Jamie chases down Anne Hathaway's Maggie and professes his love for her. What you don't see is that while the preview does accurately reflect the themes of the film, it is also often very funny. Jake Gyllenhaal puts his good looks to work as Jamie Randall, a med school dropout who isn't sure of anything besides his Add and his ability to sweet talk ladies into bed. When he's fired from his job at an electronics store (for sleeping with the boss's girlfriend, no less), Jamie takes a job in Ohio as a pharmaceutical sales rep to please his overly bourgeois parents. He seems perfectly suited to a life of schmoozing doctors and peddling anti-depressants until »

Love and Other Drugs

Love and Other Drugs

Directed by: Edward Zwick

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Josh Gad, Oliver Platt

Running Time: 1 hr 52 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: November 24, 2010

Plot: Jamie (Gyllenhaal) is a ladies man who gets into pharmaceutical sales in the late 1990s. He meets Maggie (Hathaway) who suffers from Parkinson’s and sparks fly.

Who’S It For? Fans of the rom-com will have a good time, and super fans of Gyllenhaal and Hathaway (plus naked bodies) will enjoy as well.

Expectations: My wife was very excited for this one, since these two (especially Gyllenhaal) don’t usually do the romantic comedy thing, I was interested.

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

Jake Gyllenhaal as Jamie Randall: They don’t sell him. Sure, they show him selling, they try to prove that point. But charm isn’t something that immediately comes through. Without Gyllenhaal’s smile, you wouldn’t have patience for Jamie. »

Love and Other Drugs (review)

23 November 2010 10:29 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There’s a word for people who are very clever at manipulating other people emotionally while feeling nothing themselves: that word is sociopath. Sociopaths can be very charming, but it’s all a game to them, a way to get in your head and get you to serve their needs in some way. And maybe the romantic comedy about a couple of sociopaths is where the Hollywood expression of the genre has been heading all along, since such films of recent vintage have been populated by unpleasant people doing unpleasant things in the hopes that we will be somehow charmed by them. Perhaps it was only a matter of time before pathological charm was deployed. I can’t think of a better word than sociopath to describe Jake Gyllenhaal’s (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Brothers) pharmaceutical drug rep Jamie Randall. He is effortlessly able to romance females »

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal in Love and Other Drugs

Photo: 20th Century Fox Ed Zwick's Love and Other Drugs is an imbalanced Jerry Maguire knock-off that relies heavily on a serious medical condition to gain any emotional traction with the audience. However, this wasn't my immediate response to what begins as a rather harmless feature centered on a charming Pfizer pharmaceutical sales rep that falls in love with a woman suffering from Parkinson's. It's standard stuff played by good actors and from a director whose films I've enjoyed from Glory to The Last Samurai and, yes, even Blood Diamond. However, this change of pace for Zwick just didn't work.

Loosely adapted from Jamie Reidy's "Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman," a non-fiction look into the pharmaceutical business during the rise (no pun intended) of Viagra, the story centers on Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal), a Pfizer rep, »

Watch: 'Love & Other Drugs' Red Band Trailer Drops F-Bombs, Avoids Parkinson's Disease Bomb

15 November 2010 8:06 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Love And Other Drugs" is the kind of solid triple of a movie that leaves you frustrated at just how close it came to being a home run. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, the film tells the story of a budding romance between a young couple who face a tremendous hurdle when the female half is diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's Disease. Unfortunately, every time the film seems to be headed into serious territory the story reverts to something wacky from Jonah Hill stand-in Josh Gad or resorts to another cheap laugh, instead of really going for the emotional… »

Watch: One More Quick Red Band 'Love and Other Drugs' Trailer

12 November 2010 3:52 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Who can sell a dick drug better than me?" Fox has debuted a last minute red band trailer on Break.com for their upcoming romantic comedy Love and Other Drugs starring the always charming Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. Sex sells. Unfortunately, the sex sells part of this trailer makes it look more like your run-of-the-mill comedy than the powerful romantic comedy that this supposedly is. Even his friend/brother/roommate/whoever (Josh Gad) looks annoying. Maybe I'm being too harsh, this doesn't look that bad, but I'm not sure this trailer is going to help much. Watch it below and let me know if you like it more than I did?

Exclusive: Jake Gyllenhaal Remembers Jill Clayburgh: She "Lived Every Moment" of Life

7 November 2010 2:12 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

During an interview today for his new movie 'Love and Other Drugs,' actor Jake Gyllenhaal spoke to Moviefone about his co-star Jill Clayburgh, who died Friday after a 21-year battle with chronic leukemia.

When asked what he remembered about working with Clayburgh, who plays his mother in the film, Gyllenhaal had this to say:

"She worked three days on the movie, and I remember sitting with her and immediately opening up to her. And I didn't know that she had been struggling with leukemia with 20 years; I didn't know that until I heard that she had passed away [Friday], which was a big surprise. And I thought about the moments of sitting with her between takes and how game she was for Josh Gad, who plays my brother in the movie, his improvisation, all of our improvisation. We all were improvising and laughing, and it was this wonderful, »
