The Sex Factor-Love and Other Drugs
November 29, 2010 § 2 Comments
An old hackneyed story gets spiced up in Love and other Drugs, a movie about a free-spirited girl who falls in love, but is dying. Sounds like you heard it before? Well, you have. Sweet November anyone? or that Richard Gere/ Winona Ryder snore fest, Autumn in New York?
But this film (which stars Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal) is controversial because it goes a step further with some nudity thrown in. Jake Gyllenhaal is a philandering viagra salesman who gets his comeuppance when he meets Hathaway & they dont hold back when they get involved. I hope it’s tasteful. I’ve sat through Ben Stiller doing the nasty on his ‘girlfriend’ in Greenberg (that was embarrassing) & Gerard Depardieu ‘pleasuring’ his (male) cousin in Mammuth, recently. Sexual pioneers are the new x factor in the movies-the noughties are nearly over, y’know!
Directed by Edward Zwick, Love and other Drugs is due here at the end of December.
