Mixed Feelings About Love and Other Drugs

I was expecting a light, romantic comedy with two of my favorite actors, Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The trailer looked interesting with Jake Gyllenhaal playing the part of Jamie Randall, a high-powered pharmaceutical salesman trying to have a relationship with free spirit Maggie Murdoch played by Anne Hathaway. Although that is the main plot, there is a darker side to this movie. Maggie Murdoch also has stage one Parkinson's disease.

This comedy-drama alternates between hilarious scenes with Viagra and Pfizer training sessions and deeper, more intense conversations between Jamie and Maggie.

Interesting but definitely not light fare.
