In designing the sex scenes, Edward Zwick had the principals watch romantic comedies and sexually charged films - everything from Pillow Talk (1959) to 9 Songs (2004) to Last Tango in Paris (1972) - and talk about what turned them on. Then some of those shots and ideas were incorporated into the making of the scenes. See more »

To begin with I am a huge fan of Anne Hathaway and her choice of movies lately. But this movie just doesn't seem to fit that description. It took like years for the actual movie to start.Few characters were absolutely useless in the movie.Lots of loose ends.The end was too obvious.Even among the other love flicks, this did not score well at all.Some depth/ content started to come in the movie when they started to talk about Parkinson's disease but that did not happen for more than 5-10 min.Though Anne Hathaway is looking good as always and has acted brilliantly, yet the shallowness of the story and the same routine 'casual fling becomes true love' angle really puts this movie down.
