Love and Other Drugs
When going to the movies with El and D, we were hoping for a decent chick flick. One with kissing, a break-up and make-up and Jake with his shirt off. With this movie we got that, but it also had substance to the story. The heroine Maggie has Parkinson's and doesn't think she deserves to be loved, Jamie the doesn't think he is a good enough person to be loved either. Like with all chick flicks these two incredibly good looking "misfits" find love in each other, but push the idea and the other person away. LOD has moments so funny you almost pee your pants, and some well placed nudity. I would put my enjoyment of this movie in the "Love Actually" department. Great for a date night, most men will find the movies tolerable with its funny points, plus Anne Hathaway's naked body is fantastic. But a what this movie really calls for is a feel good date night with good friends.
Love that movies that come out at Christmas time, while the weather is frightful!!
