Gyllenhaal and Hathaway do Love and Other Drugs

Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are two wonderful actors who have been struggling to find an appropriate vehicle for their comedic abilities. Perhaps Ed Zwick‘s Love and Other Drugs will be the perfect showcase.

The doomed Brokeback Mountain couple reteam for this frothy romcom, in which Gyllenhaal stars as a smarmy pharmaceutical rep who falls for the freewheeling Hathaway. It’s based on Jamie Reidy’s novel Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Saleman.

Although Gyllenhaal and Hathaway have recently been given the opportunity to flex their dramatic muscles (see: Brothers and Rachel Getting Married), their charm is certainly deserving of a simple romantic comedy such as this.

But be warned: this is one of those dreaded trailer’s that literally gives away the entire film. Watch at your own discretion.

Love and Other Drugs opens November 24, 2010 in the U.S., with an Australian release to follow.

Discuss: Are charming leads enough to sell you on a generic looking romantic comedy?
