Did You Know?

Trivia

The film is based on a book - Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman - by former Pfizer representative Jamie Reidy. He says the book is a "jumping off point", and that there is no love interest in it, as he removed all of those references, thinking that his mother would read the book. See more »

Goofs

When Jamie is looking up something on the iMac computer, he is using an "Apple Pro Mouse", an optical mouse that was introduced in the summer of 2000. The movie is set in 1998 when Viagra was first introduced by Pfizer. See more »

Quotes

Jamie Randall: [Last lines] I used to worry a lot about who I'd be when I grew up. You know, like how much money I'd make or, umm, like some day I'd become some big deal. Sometimes, the thing you want most doesn't happen. And sometimes, the thing you never expect does. Like giving up my job in Chicago and everything and deciding to stay and apply to med school. I don't know. You meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed... forever.

not the average romantic comedy ( and thats a good thing)
25 January 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that have a weird marketing campaign, the studio wants to sell it like a romantic comedy when its more like a drama with complex and real characters. Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyleenhaal have good chemistry on screen and secondary characters help to bring equilibrium to a movie that other way could turn to be a little depressing. I also think that this movie doesn't deserve the R rating just because it deals with sex ( I live in Mexico and here we have something like PG-15)hopefully people don't feel to uncomfortable with the sex scene because it gives more credibility to the story.In the end the film works better than others of its genre and its worth a look ( probably not for a first date) but if you are already on a relationship it will give you something to think and talk about.
