    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal are hotties with talent. And they maneuver through the daunting maze of shifting tones and intersecting plots of Love and Other Drugs like the pros they are. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    As is appropriate in a well-crafted and meticulous movie, the acting is strong down the line. show more

    Zwick's "Once and Again" and "Thirtysomething" portrayed emotion more honestly than many TV shows of their time. But in Love and Other Drugs, he unevenly weds the satirical and the sentimental. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    There's no adroitness, no grace in the handling of the pitching emotions - funny, sad, icky - that such a story presents. show more

    We never really forget we're watching two highly paid professionals create a cinematic placebo, strong enough to entertain without making a long-term impact. Fortunately, everyone works just hard enough to sell us on the whole thing anyway. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    As potentially appealing as these two actors might be, there's just nowhere for this story to go. show more

    The result, bolstered by strong acting and an intriguing back story, is an unqualified success. Love and Other Drugs may be the most honest romance to grace the screens during all of 2010. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

    Two very good looking people play two offbeat and abrasively charming lovers in Love & Other Drugs. And when your screen romance is as sexual as this one, it helps if your stars are about as good looking with their clothes off as human beings get. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

    This is by far the worst movie i have ever EVER seen. I used to like Hathaway until this movie, now she is just another dumb actress who can\'t make you feel anything but disgust for her. The story might have been good, but the actors made it so horrible. I kept wanting Hathaways charcter to just die already. her relationship or whatver it was - absolutely nothing, and so boring - ugh. How anyone can say this was a good movie must be brian dead. the actors in this movie should never work again. Hopefully. And also the sex scenes were the most boring parts of the movie, thank goodness I have better sex than these people. Horrible! Boring! and some of the worst acting EVER!

    This chick flick was pretty good and the mild nudity should not bother most people.

    Buy it if you want to see (almost) every part of Hathaway's anatomy (not that I didn't enjoy that aspect, mind you). Parts of the movie were done well, others, not so much. Jake's movie brother character distracted from the movie. Not your typical com/rom. I really didn't care for it, but, the wife said it was just okay, so you be judge.

    Would have given it no stars if that option were available. Trash! I hate it when dirty old men try to direct a chick flick. They put out trailers making you think it might be a love story...and it ends up being a product of their sick fantasies. This should have been rated X fo all the unnecessary nudity, sex and language. Ten minutes into the film and you will know a woman had nothing to do with the making of this movie. It was more like a bunch of dirty old men standing around thinking of what men would like. Anne Hathaway you just shot your career. Well, maybe not as a porn star!

    I just finished watching it and I loved it. Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are great in it. This movie made me cry and realize a lot of things in life. I am great full for movies like this. I recommend people go see it.

    What happened to the X rating? This movie had no redeeming value. If you're into pornography and graphic sex it's for you. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

    My friend who suggested we see this movie (against my better judgment) has volunteered to let me pick the next three movies as penance for persuading me to see Love and other drugs. The only way to tolerate this movie would be on drugs. It is all over the place, but bottom line, it seemed the makers were hoping the phsiques of the main characters would save the day. Way too long and depressing for that. Eye candy only goes so far..........Sorry Charlie
