Love And Other Drugs

There are many reasons to like Love And Other Drugs. There's Anne Hathaway's emotional performance, and her class-yet-sexy nude scenes. There's Jake Gyllenhall's mature, steady performance that that shows he's successfully making the transition to leading man. There's the in-depth look at some of the most important social topics of the last decade, namely health care and greed.

Did I mention Hathaway's nude scenes?

Despite all these positives, I didn't really care for the film. Or maybe I did. I'm unsure, and that's the problem with Love And Other Drugs. It lukewarm at best, despite solid performances and interesting storyline. The film starts zany and ends serious, and that uncertainty about what the film intends to be may be it's downfall.

The flicks worth seeing; just don't expect to be thinking about it the next day.
