User Reviews

 
Love and Other Drugs is a No Way!

Edward Zwick movies- the flavoring was long lost. Story - I was not expecting anything fresh. Direction - Refer to the first line. Cinematography - How much can you rely on the background to take you through hours of ruthless time killing! Judy Greer is too loud and exaggerated to thicken a weak plot. Jake Gyllenhaal is more than just disappointing.

Pre-marital sex is an over-talked issue which went looking too naive for the duo to pull it off well. Everything else about the story is too repetitive and too cliché to make any prominent difference to the movie , which starts stumbling in the first few minutes.

At any rate, did you know the idea was copied from a Korean movie, Cheot sarang, made in 1991 or thereabouts? That Korean film was actually brilliant as comedy but at the same time compels the audience to reflect on the complexity of man-woman relationships and man-woman difference in experience and thinking. I mean most of the Love and Other Drugs segment was emulated take by take. Can't Hollywood movie makers try to make originals only, please? If there is any high point in the movie, may be its just the scenic beauty but then i would rather pay a hefty amount and visit the drugstore than spend hours watching a sad attempt at romance! The freshness and the feel good effect of the yesteryear Edward Zwick mushy flicks have lost their color and charm in the crowd of new comers expecting the costly sets and the music set up to help them climb the ladders of fame!
