Film Review: Love and Other Drugs (15)

Two of Hollywood’s hottest young stars Jake Gyllenhall and Anne Hathaway appear in this romantic comedy.

Jamie (Gyllenhall) is a pharmaceutical salesman when he meets the alluring Maggie (Hathaway), who has an addiction to prescription drugs. Then, the two free spirits find themselves growing to love each other, much to their surprise.

The characters are well thought out and there are plenty of plot and character twists, with casual banter between the pair.

The on-screen chemistry is great, which is perhaps to be expected given the fact the two have worked together previously in Brokeback Mountain, but sometimes the passion between the two may be a bit too much for some viewers.
