Love and Other Drugs
is a romantic comedy, which of late is a genre that tends to be unremarkable. And it is co-written and directed by Ed Zwick
who, sadly, tends to make movies that are also unremarkable. That's not two strikes, but it's close. (For me.)
But the film is also a kind of Brokeback Mountain
reunion, as it puts Jake Gyllenhaal
and Anne Hathaway
back in the same cast. That's a selling point (for me, anyway) ...
