After spending the night together on the night of their college graduation Dexter and Em are shown each year on the same date to see where they are in their lives. They are sometimes together, sometimes not, on that day.
Maggie (Hathaway) is an alluring free spirit who won't let anyone - or anything - tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with the ladies and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie's evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love. Written by
Twentieth Century Fox
Lawyers for both principals prepared documents about how much nudity the film would show. In the end, though, Edward Zwick simply pledged that there would be nothing in the film with which they were not comfortable. See more »
Jamie and Maggie are in Chicago. In the scene where they walk across the street after the unConvention, the street sign clearly shows "Seventh Avenue." There is no Seventh Avenue in Chicago. See more »
Do yourselves a favor and don't watch this movie unless you want to see Anne Hathaway's boobs. If you are interested in her breasts, watch only the first half of the movie. I can assure you that the movie doesn't become more interesting or less boring. I wanted to stop the film and forget about it, but someone on IMDb said that it "fortunately, evolves in to something more". I believed the user and now I'm sorry. I think that the producer thought of the most popular things in a movie and he came up with the perfect recipe: drugs, money, hunger for power, sex, even love, unshared love, a young girl's incurable disease, disgusting brother sleeping on a couch, nice old persons who don't have enough money to buy their essential medication and even the greedy drug industry, etc. Unfortunately, is like mixing main course and desert in the same plate, even if they are great if you eat them one by one, the combination can be disastrous. It's just a friendly advice :D
