Love and Other Drugs


The main attraction here seemed to be that Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway got naked a lot. He’s a drug rep—one of the lowest life-forms on the planet—and she’s a patient suffering from early-onset (very early) Parkinson’s Disease. The best thing here is the exposure of the totally corrupt, totally disgusting, illegal and immoral practices of Big Pharma [PigPharma]. I liked it that they used the names of real drugs, real companies, including Viagra, which was sort of like discovering the atomic bomb for Pfizer; now we can crush the other companies, and charge $20 a pill! But of course it’s not an expose, it’s a love story, and it goes exactly where you expected it to go.
