A jagged little pill that, in the end, goes down too smoothly.

It's back to the heady mid 90s with this new film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway.

A sometimes intoxicating, sometimes headache-inducing cocktail: a sweet, libidinous love story; a candid comedy of bedroom and workplace manners; and, most bravely, if also most jarringly, a medical melodrama involving a chronic and very serious disease.

The director is Edward Zwick, a considerable filmmaker. He obtains a warm, lovable performance from Anne Hathaway and dimensions from Gyllenhaal that grow from comedy to the serious.

In the end, this is a smart movie that could have been smarter. The script feels like it was a draft or so away from total clarity and focus. But the energy of the cast and a dive into an unfamiliar world make the movie rather addictive.

I'm going to be charitable and say that it is definitely worth watching, but probably not at the cinema - it'd be great for a night in.

This is about Jamie a drug rep who meets his match in Maggie and they start up a relationship and go through ups and downs. Solid performances from Jake and Anne. This was a decent movie

In some ways it was good. It was touching, emotional, funny. But the sex scenes were overly explicit. Much as I like looking at a gorgeous body like Anne's, I felt the explicitness gave it a sleazy feel. Or maybe I've been spoilt by the treatment of sex and nudity in foreign films like Czech film "I served the king of England" which doesn't have that sleazy...

A fantastic romantic comedy that isn't your norm in this genre. My wife and I loved the humour & the drama plus all the sex made for interesting viewing ;) Enjoyed the acting from the two leads as well. All in all, go watch this movie.
