“Love And Other Drugs” explores the early days of Viagra and sexy bodies

Pin it

Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway star in a new movie about the early days of Viagra — but Middle Men this ain't.

Love And Other Drugs is acclaimed director Ed Zwick's attempt to game the younger generation of romantic moviegoers, and we're betting — what with this cast and charming trailer — that it will work. Jakey plays a pharmaceutical rep, Annie takes on a random woman who doesn't put up with his womanizing ways. Oh, and he gets into selling Viagra but apparently doesn't need any himself to satisfy Miss Hathaway again and again… in a series of PG-13 sexy sex scenes, course.

Throw in the overweight roommate for comic relief and other cliches and you have yourself a small sleeper hit. In other words, it's 500 Days of Summer set a few years ago with a tangent about Viagra.
