Trailer Watch: Love and Other Drugs
This looks a bit like Jerry Maguire if you cut out all the sports and put in Viagra, but despite it all, this is probably the most excited I've ever been about an Edward Zwick movie ever. The reasons are mostly because of the film's two leads: Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. This is their first film together since 2005's Brokeback Mountain (Hathaway seemed to be the forgotten player in that great film, which was a shame since she was terrific in limited screen time). Here, their chemistry looks great, and though the histrionics and melodrama seem to be laid on pretty thick in this true-story romantic drama, I'm willing to watch anything if their going to be exceptional in it. This looks like it could sneak in with some acting Oscar noms, though it looks like it will make a bigger splash in Golden Globes territory.
