Love and Other Drugs Redband Trailer Shows Viagra Moment

I am an unabashed hater of Jake Gyllenhaal. Maybe it’s his good looks and winning personality, but I don’t think he’s the Hollywood star and first-class actor the media often portrays him as. I liked him in October Sky, before ┬áhis pubes sprouted and his voice changed, and I thought he did a decent job in David Fincher’s Zodiac. But that’s about it. He was overrated in Brokeback Mountain and I thought he was stunningly ridiculous in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Aside from my Very Hairy Jake Gyllenhaal hatred, I still want to see him and Anne Hathaway (Valentine’s Day) get steamy and romantic in Edward Zwick’s new dramaedy, Love and Other Drugs. Frankly, this movie could start the Jonas Brothers and Fran Drescher and I’d still be frothing to see Zwick’s movie. The man has an awesome resume, including Blood Diamond, The Last Samurai and Glory.

Love and Other Drugs is about a philandering Viagra salesman (Gyllenhaal) who develops a relatonship with a sexually aggressive artist (Hathaway), whereupon hilarity and drama ensue, or so we’re led to believe. I’ve read early reviews that describe Gyllenhaal and Hathaway’s performances as “career changing,” but I also have read The Social Network is the best movie on the planet and that is simply not true, at least to this movie lover. One thing is certain, the redband trailer below gives some insight into Anne Hathaway’s newfound adversion to onscreen nudity. She took off her clothes in Brokeback Mountain and Havoc, but it seems the secenes with Gyllenhaal were beyond painstaking and stressful for the young actress, because she has vowed to not strip down again.

Check out the trailer after the jump and give me your thoughts.
