Love & Other Drugs

A pharmaceutical salesman meets a free-spirited young woman who is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Their relationship which started casually started to evolve in the process. To their surprise, this relationship actually changed each other's lives, personality and even perception about love and relationships.

During the early parts of the movie, I actually thought it was just going to be another romantic comedy that would make me feel good and such. However, during the end part, the sincere romantic part of the story actually came about. For me it was a surprise how it started wild and all messed up but then came to the conclusion of how unconditional love really matters in relationships.

Jake and Anne was good on screen. Both played their characters really well too. Jake had this natural charm which fit him really well. Anne was totally surprising here. She was wild and it's not at all the Princess Diaries/Ella Enchanted character we all know. It was totally the opposite and she handled it really well.

For the romance, the funny moments and the great lesson I got from the movie, I would give it an 8.
