Academy Award® Nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway co-star in “the smartest, sexiest and downright best screen-melting romance of the year” (Parade ). Hathaway delivers an unforgettable performance as the free-spirited Maggie, who meets her match in a charming Viagra salesman named Jamie (Gyllenhaal). Maggie and Jamie leap into a no-strings-attached affair, but no matter how hard they try to keep things “casual,” they can’t help falling under the influence of the ultimate drug...love!

They start out with what seems like the perfect relationship for each other. Neither wants a romantic entanglement and just want it to be about the sex. The movie earns an R rating, because you see pretty much everything aside from total full frontal nudity from both actors. Of course by the end of the movie they both admit to being in love, but the story in between where he comes to grips with her disease (and in a sense so does she) and he goes from trying to cure her to just agreeing to be there for her is where the movie shines.
It is part romantic comedy, part raunchy sex comedy, part drama and blends them all well. For those who get the blu ray, the movie looks and sounds as good as you would expect a non special effects laden movie would. There are several short behind the scenes and making of segments, some deleted scenes and trailers. Nothing too extensive, but enough for those who like to go through the extras.
I also remember enjoying it the first time, but the second time was even better. Maybe in my initial viewing I was distracted by the nudity (tastefully done) or perhaps I'm just slow on the uptake but there was a lot going on that didn't sink in the irst time. The excellent use of music, the subtleties of the characters transitions throughout the film, and the realization that little brother was more than an obnoxious foil; all this escaped me the first time. Perhaps again, I am just a bit dim but I prefer to think I merely let generally low expectations for the genre prevent me from paying proper attention. Pay attention. It's worth it.

A chick flick that I actually liked (and not because of the naked Hathaway) ;)
