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.

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.

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.

"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.

It isn't bashful at all, incorporating plenty of sex and humour; you'll feel like you're sleeping with them too.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Fan The Fire
January 11, 2011
For it's hard work, sadly the film's two heartfelt, emotional scenes are wholly undermined by some awful soundtracking.

Eye for Film
January 4, 2011
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.

Beneath the gloss is the deeply unsatisfying feeling that Zwick isn't telling us enough about Parkinson's.

It's certainly its own brand of cinematic viagra - guaranteed to arouse and, in the short run at least, perk up tired romcom audiences.

Well above the standards of your average romantic comedy, it's funny, sexy and smart. It's just not smart enough to stick to its guns to the end.

Time Out

Ultimately, the unsettled tone undermines the romantic conclusion. Still, you've got to admire the ambition it shares with its cocky hero.

By no means perfect, but Gyllenhaal and Hathaway are a match made in heaven.

They gaze intently at each other a lot. Is that all it takes? Maybe. A useful date movie, then.

It isn't quite Love Story, but comes close.
| Original Score: 3/5
Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall
December 23, 2010
This engaging film blends a true story with fiction, morphing from a rom-com into a moving drama as it goes along. In addition, it's a sharply well-aimed jab at the pharmaceutical world.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

A pleasant surprise.

Matthew Turner
December 22, 2010
An enjoyable and ultimately moving drama that transcends its potentially mawkish subject matter thanks to a strong script and terrific performances from its two frequently naked leads.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Sharp, softcore smutty, sweet and silly, Love & Other Drugs, like Viagra, provides an easy 'up' on a slow weekend.
