Love and Other Drugs (2010)
Critic Consensus: It's a pleasure to see Hollywood produce a romance this refreshingly adult, but Love and Other Drugs struggles to find a balance between its disparate plot elements.

Critic Reviews for Love and Other Drugs
Eight months after health-care reform was signed into law, Universal Pictures courageously weighs in with a watered-down satire of the pharmaceutical industry.
Ultimately, the unsettled tone undermines the romantic conclusion. Still, you've got to admire the ambition it shares with its cocky hero.
But in Love & Other Drugs, [Zwick] and Herskovitz find a groove that delivers wry writing and smart cultural observation.
A slick weepie made by smart guys who want you to know they're better than the schlockmeisters.
as many weak spots, but what it delivers at its core is as indelible as (and a lot more explicit than) the work of such legendary teams as Clark Gable and Joan Crawford, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.
This movie is best treated like dim sum. Wait out the bad portions until a tastier dish is served. Let Hathaway be your guide.
Audience Reviews for Love and Other Drugs
I disagree with the common feeling that this movie doesn't exactly know what story it wants to tell; in fact, it is a decent romantic comedy that balances well its different plot elements, with a great chemistry between the leads and a very hot Jake Gyllenhaal almost naked in several scenes.
Anne Hathaway is superb as always...and any movie with Jake Gyllenhaal with his shirt off has gotta be in my top 10. It's an interesting situation for a romance, which sets it apart from so many other Matthew McConahay-type films.
It wasn't quite the film I was expecting, thinking it would be just like most rom-coms churned out at the moment that are light hearted but have little depth. This does have more in-depth characters, the main star being Anne Hathaway's Maggie who at 26 has Parkinson's disease. It does have a few laughs along the way at the more light hearted moments. I was a bit surprised Anne Hathaway did a few nude scenes in this, but I'm not complaining. If you want a sexy, fun comedy with a bit more depth to the characters, this is prefect for you!

No- I'm Knowingly full of shit because I have never cared about anybody or anything in my entire life and the thing is that everybody just kind of accepted that, like "that's just Jamie". And then you...Jesus! You. You...you didn't see me that way. I have never known anyone who'd actually believe that I was enough, until I met you... and then you made me believe it too, so unfortunately...I need you.|
