Love and Other Drugs

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: A heartless pharmaceutical rep (Jake Gyllenhaal) falls in love with a Parkinson's patient (Anne Hathaway).

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Josh Gad, Gabriel Macht, Judy Greer, George Segal, Jill Clayburgh, Kate Jennings Grant, Katheryn Winnick, Kimberly Scott

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. When making your decision about whether or not to see this movie, there's really only one question you need to ask yourself: do you want to see Anne Hathaway's boobs? If it's any help, I can advise you that they are very nice looking.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Parkinson's disease is the one that gives you the shakes, so it goes without saying that it has been the source of much laughter through the ages. And if you're one of those a-holes who thinks that's funny, then yes.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: Not really, but I'm still sad that Parkinson's sent Michael J. Fox into early retirement. I miss his comedic genius almost as much as I miss Leslie Nielsen's.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Did you hear? Anne Hathaway is hosting the Academy Awards this year, along with James Franco? This raises a lot of questions for me, like: What is the Academy thinking? And, why would Anne Hathaway and James Franco want to take that much time out of their schedules during the height of their careers, just to host a self-indulgent Awards show that no one will remember one week after it has passed? And mostly, how much time will each of them have to spend rehearsing their reaction to the moment when someone else takes home the statue they had hoped to win in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories... Awkward.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Jake Gyllenhaal gives his most convincing sexy-love face since the gay-cowboy movie. Anne Hathaway gives her most convincing I'm-screwy-so-don't-mess-with-me act since the got-out-of-rehab-right-on-time-to-mess-up-my-sister's wedding movie. And Hank Azaria pretends to be someone with a heart... Kinda.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: It looks like it was a lot of fun. Ed Zwick goes from multiple angles of making out to multiple angles of naked bodies and back. It was probably a closed set 50% of the time, and it's hard to imagine how anybody was able to focus on work.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: The more I think about it, the more I think that Ed Zwick wrote this piece (with Charles Randolph) just so that he could spend the next few months filming two sexy, naked twenty-somethings doing it. Perv.

Q: Where can I see the trailer?
