Two pervs at the movies – Love and Other Drugs
At the movies – Love and Other Drugs
This was the perfect movie for the Two Pervs.
For one thing, it starred Anne Hathaway, looking smashing and nude. For another, it was a masterpiece of a script compared to Burlesque the day before. Uhm, for a third thing, we had whiskey.
We watched Love and Other Drugs at the same tawdry discount theatre as Burlesque, too – “Cinema City” (scare quotes to emphasize how un-cinema and un-urban it actually is) at the nearby (to my parents’ house) Northgate Mall in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Love and Other Drugs starts off with a backroom tryst, but it’s not until about the, oh, ten-minute mark before we first see Anne Hathaway’s left boob. A few minutes later though she and Jake Gyllenhaal are getting it on, and we’re treated to a few steamy sex scenes and some nice nude shots of Ms Hathaway, one of which prompted 77-year-old bachelor Uncle M. to declare: “What a broad. Fantastic.”
And so Love and Other Drugs gets an eight on the perv-o-metre.
(The rest of the movie is actually pretty good for a romantic comedy circa 2010. It’s by Ed Zwick and Michael Herzkowitz, mainly, the team behind thirtysomething, which hasn’t aged well but is still a fun time capsule.)
