Gold Tinted

Audio/ Visual ideas & goings on.

Love and Other Drugs (2010)

A lovely love story, perfectly formed, though a little bit dull. That may be because I was not watching it with a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates. Plus i’m not a thirty-something woman.

The ideas were there and the foundations of a good heart-warming story were present. It was just in the narrative & performance that lacked the sparks of meaning and sentiment that would have made it great. This is sad for me to say as I am a big fan of Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.

There were some touching moments in which Hathaway played out the real despair that she was facing in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. This plus the gratuitous nudity throughout made it a little more than the usual ‘rom-com’, but not much more. The scenes seemed placed without any junction or passing leading to some scenes being redundant and without purpose to the plot, development or emotion.

Overall, I was expecting a better, more emotional watch then I got. Instead cliché characters, plot and even locations that lead this movie to be a bore.
