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 presenting TV-Sets in the opening scene, he introduces three 52-inch Flatscreen (or bigger) models by Philips, Samsung and Magnavox. The scene is set in 1996. 1997, Philips introduced the first 42-inch plasma display (US $14,999) to the retail public in 4 Sears locations in the US. 52-inch displays weren't among their Flat-TV range until at least 2003.

User Reviews

 
not the average romantic comedy ( and thats a good thing)
25 January 2011 | by mooviefan-891-879574See 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.
