Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Maggie is using the camcorder in bed to film Jamie the camcorder is tilted, but the black-and-white shots of of Jamie are not. See more »

Looks more Amercian Pie without the laughs
8 January 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Another sleaze from Hollywood.

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.
