Two complicated romantic comedies. Two degrees of separation from Jake. Jake Gyllenhaal reunites with Brokeback Mountain wife Anne Hathaway in the upcoming Love and Other Drugs, a true story about a flirtatious Viagra salesman who falls for a girl who knows his game. Matters get complicated when he gets successful and women find him increasingly desirable, but he must stay committed to the woman he really loves. I love both Gyllenhaal and Hathaway, but cannot deny I cringed a couple times at the did-that/done-that bits in the trailer. Love and Other Drugs hits theatres November 24, 2010. Trailer below:
Gyllenhaal's ex-girlfriend, Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon also has a trick or two up her sleeve to with her Holiday release How Do You Know starring Paul Rudd, Jack Nicholson and Owen Wilson. The story revolves around a woman caught between her love for two men, one who is willing to bend over backwards for her (Wilson) and one who she reunites with by chance, who is in legal trouble (Rudd). I don't see what the issue is here. Are you kidding me? Pick Paul! Nobody can resist those blue eyes and a bad boy in legal trouble. Nobody! Trailer below:
I'm iffy on both, but will likely see both. Which will you be going to see?
