LOVE & OTHER DRUGS is about a blu-pill salesman!
Hey folks, Harry here to dream a little about LOVE & OTHER DRUGS by the always hopefully compelling, Ed Zwick. I'm a sucker for a good romantic drama - and that's what I hope this is. A film that is not quite a romantic comedy, but something that makes your heart ache a bit, that perhaps make you leave the theater with a tear caught on the edge of a smile. I'm thinking about films like BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S or THE APARTMENT... I believe Ed Zwick has that kind of film in him and I wonder if Jake & Anne can pull of that kind of emotional honesty. Anne still has a bit of that Gloss stuck to her, but there's a couple of shots in here that seems to have that wiped off. And as for Jake... I just don't know. When you're straining to find a young George Peppard or a young Jack Lemmon, who do you turn to? Is that Jake Gyllenhaal? I'm not sure. Here he seems to be trying to project a Tom Cruise "Jerry Maguire" type of vibe, but does Zwick have that Cameron Crowe pixie dust that makes all of it tear at the inner soul of the romantic heart? I don't know, but I hope it doesn't feel cheap or artificial and there's definitely that possibility. What do y'all think of this trailer for LOVE & OTHER DRUGS.

And I didn't think much about it two weeks ago, when filmdrunk posted it. Although there are reports that Hathaway gets naked in abundance, but that's offset by the fact that her character has Parkinson's. I'd still do her, though. Oh yeah....

Like my dick if I had to actually watch this derivative crap!

not bad, but likeable enough. nothing new, though. I mean...that was the whole movie from beginning to end in the trailer, right? didn't we all just see it? <p>I saw the character introductions, the meet-cute, the first date, the sex scene, the secondary characters, the progression of the relationship, the funny scene with the fat friend, the conflict, the fake giving up, the big finale where he chases after her instead of doing hos job, or selling out, or fucking the hot blonde or something. the only thing left for the theater is the kiss at the end.<p>the irony is, the only movies that show EVERY FUCKING THING from beginning to end in their trailers, are the ones without an ounce of surprise or creativity in their plots. it would be funny if it weren't so sad.<p>when movies like Inception make a gazillion dollars, we always hope hollywood will go, "make more smart movies! make intriguing trailers that don't show everything!" but it never happens. because those smart movies that make a gazillion, they cost half a gazillion. and when you can just do a mad libs of romantic comedy cliches with some cute, popular stars and make just as much return on your investment, what's the point of doing anything unique?<p>it's just depressing.

where Tom Cruise is screaming on the floor "Sakai! Sakai! Sakai" cuz he was going through alcohol withdrawal has to be one of the cheesiest scenes in movie history

... because it is way too long, and pretty much gives away almost all of the movie. That said, you'll probably go watch it now in spite of the warning, so have at it. You can find it on youtube.

Lonely sadsack "hunk" who travels for a living meets the unavailable woman. Dick jokes, surprise hidden relationship issues and Mo-Town music ensues.

Entire theater was busting a gut in that scene.
