New Release: Love and Other Drugs
Love & Other Drugs stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Jamie Randall and Anne Hathaway as Maggie Murdoch in the late 1990s. Jamie is the screw-up of his over-achieving family - his younger brother Josh just sold a company for millions (played by Josh Gad - in a role that showed me Jonah Hill better watch his back as I liked Gad MUCH better than any role Hill's done in a while). He gets a job in pharmaceutical sales just before Viagra is released during the time Prozac is being challenged by Zoloft. Side note - I found it weird they didn't feel the need to explain what any of these drugs were because everyone already knew them, it seemed to be a small commentary on the fact that the commercialization of drugs directly to consumers is a massive change that people have somewhat overlooked. Anyway, Jamie cons his way into a doctor's office and meets Maggie, a young woman looking for a refill on her Parkinson's drugs.
