5.0 out of 5 stars So much more then 2 hours of Anne Hathaway naked. Very sweet love story. How did she not get nominated? I say A., February 28, 2011
This review is from: Love & Other Drugs (DVD)
A prescription drug salesman falls in love with a woman who is not as together as she seems. After meeting Maggie (Hathaway) in a doctor's office, Jamie (Gyllenhaal) tracks her down and the relationship begins. This is not at all what I expected, it was so much better. Going in all I heard about it from the interviews was...Anne Hathaway is naked alot, there is rampent nudity and sex. This movie is much, much more then that. This is a movie about two, for lack of a better work, selfish people who start a relationship based solely on sex. They begin to develop real feelings for each other, and thats when they start to have problems. Much like "Get Low" this is another movie that got passed over at the "Oscars". I'm not talking best picture, but Anne Hathaway was fantastic in this and to not get nominated is a huge oversight. Gyllenhaal and Hathaway have great chemistry and it really helps you get more involved with the characters. This was a great film, full of laughs, tears and it makes you think. I highly recommend this movie and I guarantee you will not be dissapointed. I give it an A.

Would I watch again? - Absolutly

Why didnt Hathaway get nominated? No one will get nominated when the movie is based on such a poor, sloppy, and manufactured script. She essentially played a girl who was afraid of committing herself until the right man broke down her wall. How many times have we seen that before? And to be honest, there were many points in the movie where her part lacked credibility. For example, when she went across the street to the "unconvention" for a Parkinson's self help group. Did you honestly believe her "jubilant" mood immediately after the meeting was over? The character she had portrayed up to that point would have been angry that her boyfriend did not respond to her page to join her. The immediate change to jubilance just didnt hold water and felt extremely fake. Im not blaming Hathaway...I blame the script. I am just surprised Hathaway agreed to accept such a poorly written part.

Personally, I expected so much more from Anne (and a whole LOT less of her boobs) she is capible of SO much better. HEr acting in this was terrible, totally not believable for this character. Poor script, bad acting, poor casting, I don't know who to blame it on, but this was def. not her best role.
