Love and Other Drugs

Romance Comedy


 

Maggie is an alluring free spirit who won't let anyone - or anything - tie her down.

"Love and Other Drugs" is a love story that hams it up and attempts to pass as a rom-com. There's a super dose of romance as the themes of love, relationships and commitment are played out with enough depth to dissolve any hard-hearted genre cynicism. There are some annoyingly superficial and muddled moments offsetting the serious underlying themes of illness and the drug industry with levity. Watching this mixed up but enjoyable offering you're stirred rather shaken. Humming; "Jump up, bubble up, what's in store?".
