Love & Other Drugs (2010) - Edward Zwick

Never mind 150 words, I can do this in five: “two beautiful people having sex”.  

And lots of it.  But when they are this beautiful, can you really blame them?  Think the audience may be getting bored?  Simple - just whip your boobs out.  And while you’re at it, get…well…”at it”.  You could quite conceivably rename this to “Sex & Nothing Else”.

But that would be harsh.  Sex aside, it’s got romance and comedy but isn’t your typical rom-com - it’s actually got some substance to it.  It’s got two beautiful people who don’t just rely on obvious sexual chemistry, but actually do a good job of acting too.  And it’s also got a great 90s soundtrack.  Love & Other Drugs is simply a nice little romantic film to make you feel all warm inside, without the sickly sweetness.

And, for the record, it’s got some sex in it.  Just a warning.
