The film is based on a book - Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman - by former Pfizer rep 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 »

Do not be seduced by the romantic tone of the poster.
Although the storyline is not common, the film resembles more American Pie (without the fun) than a romantic love story.
I was never a fan of Edward Zick and probably hesitate see his movies again.
He seems to get some of the interesting stories to tell (Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai),with charismatic actors (Jake and Anne in this film are gorgeous) but every time, you get a bitter feeling of dissatisfaction, when you leave the theater.
The film is not a romantic comedy, not sensual (despite Anne stripping naked at the drop of a hat), does not make you laugh, does not make you weep...just nothing.
