Love and Other Drugs

I love movies. I think anyone who knows me knows this eensy weensy fact. Period pieces (drool, drool), true stories, movies that go boom, techy-type flicks (drool), a romance or two, a couple of vampires, several zombie killers and a handful of documentaries (relatively recent exploration). I have a few TV shows saved on Netflix and Hulu – cop shows are a constant theme (this actually falls in line with my e-library). That aside, my TV queues closely resemble my movie habits.

Love & Other DrugsHowever, I typically do not do comedies. Just not my thing. Apparently I’m the only person in my world who hasn’t seen The Hangover (I experienced enough in my past) or Bridesmaids. Sometimes the cast will garner my interest (The Devil Wears Prada was great, Bridewars). So after I had been asked several times if I had seen “Love and Other Drugs” I figured I’d give it a shot. The previews were pretty funny. I like Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. I put it on my Netflix list, and their rating thingamob said I’d give it almost 4 stars out of 5 (pretty typical)

I should have read more about the film. Not only was it a big disappointment, the dialog left much to be desired. The story line would have been great if the director wasn’t so obsessed with the constant gratuitous display of Hathaway’s breasts and Gyllenhaal’s naked backside. It was overindulgent and way more explicit than it needed to be. After the first 30 or so minutes I turned the DVD player off and shoved the disc back into its mailer.

I’d rather watch Mila Jojovich hack up zombies for two hours.

Oh wait…been there, done that.
