Love and Other Drugs Reviews

We Got This Covered

Love and Other Drugs isn't a perfect film, and Zwick has certainly done better, but for what it is, it's mostly watchable and fairly enjoyable.

This movie is far from your standard romantic comedy. It's a deeper film that touches on heavier emotional moments.

The Patriot Ledger

Zwick and his writing partners, Marshall Herskovitz and Charles Randolph, overextend their scope by a wide margin.

Lacks a certain something, but not chemistry between Jake and Anne. They set off real sparks.

Digital Spy

Charismatic turns from its two stars provide the heartbeat for the movie, which resembles director Edward Zwick's TV show thirtysomething with its insight into male/female intimacy.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

There were several potential avenues to develop here, but the film settles for something conventional and sentimental with its love story.

Can he love her when her illness degenerates? Can she let him in even though she's scared? Will he always work for the people who are actually making her life more difficult? You're allowed not to care.

The movie has lots of scenes of the two leads in bed together, but it can't decide whether it's a big issue film, a romantic comedy or a weepy melodrama, so it ends up being none of them successfully.

Strange how for a movie about a Viagra salesman, we don't see the growth of the characters.

"Love & Other Drugs" may have one foot in comedy and the other in the sickness-of-the-week genre, but that's the way life plays out sometimes.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

An overstated (dialogue-wise and visually-the movie's mostly close-ups) and underwhelming trip. And for a movie all about dickishness, its actual masking of Gyllenhaal's dick-twice with a cushion, as if out of a bad British sex farce-is limply dishonest.

It isn't bashful at all, incorporating plenty of sex and humour; you'll feel like you're sleeping with them too.

For it's hard work, sadly the film's two heartfelt, emotional scenes are wholly undermined by some awful soundtracking.

I ended up wondering how a screenplay this messy had ever gone into production, let alone attracted two actors of this quality.

A mess, but one of those messes where it's at least fun to debate the different ways in which it got it so wrong and could have been great.

Eye for Film

Interesting ideas lurk, tantalisingly, underneath the romcom formula and yet every brave move Zwick and his co-writers make is countered by something weak and formulaic, as if in apology.

Eight months after health-care reform was signed into law, Universal Pictures courageously weighs in with a watered-down satire of the pharmaceutical industry.

At least we now know why Anne Hathaway's co-presenting this year's Oscars. She's not gonna make it to that stage any other way.

A redeemed-lout-and-sacrificial-lamb weepie, complete with a shameless revival of the dreaded Ali MacGraw Disease

The two narrative strands don't quite mesh, and the movie stumbles badly when trying to effect the redemption of Randall through love.
