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
