Below is the completely uninspiring trailer for Love & Other Drugs, a romantic comedy that stars Jake Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. It’s as unremarkable a trailer as you’ll likely see. It doesn’t provide much reason to see the movie, even if you are fans of the two leads. In fact, watching it, I wasn’t even sure what it was about, until I read the synopsis, which literally made me physically guffaw and gag simultaneously. A gaguffaw. Needless to say, I wound up with oatmeal in my nose. Seriously, check out this synopsis, and ask yourself who the hell writes these things?
Anne Hathaway portrays Maggie, an alluring free spirit who won’t let anyone - or anything - tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with the ladies and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie’s evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love.
Now, here’s the trailer.
