Hathaway and Gyllenhaal's characters meet in the most unflattering of places for any woman, the gynecologist's office! But, it is there that Gyllenhaal's Jamie decides he has a thing for Hathaway's Maggie. There's an instant spark between the two as their romance begins solely with passion.
Love and Other Drugs is based on the bestselling book by Jamie Reidy, Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman and it is with great pride we present our readers with an exclusive clip from the film.
In the film and the book, Jamie is a playboy -- a man enjoying his twenties to the fullest. When he meets Maggie, suddenly the single life does not seem as appealing as trying to make a relationship work with the young beauty. Maggie is undergoing treatment for Parkinson's disease, but does not let it get in the way of her living her life to its fullest. Through her firm commitment to leading a bountiful life in the face of adversity, she inspires Jamie to look at his life and perhaps find a new path.
Through Jamie's life selling pharmaceuticals and Maggie's taking an army of medication to fight Parkinson's, they both learn that the best drug of all for curing all that ails is love.
