Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe director is Edward Zwick, a considerable filmmaker. He's essentially working with a screenplay (by Charles Randolph, Marshall Herskovitz and himself) that doesn't work. Given that problem, you have to observe that he is a capable filmmaker even in bad weather.

eye Weekly
Kieran Grant quote iconIf only Pfizer sold a drug to help balance real-talk frankness — and annoying levels of aren’t-we-bold? casual nudity and humping — with slow-clap, third-act idealism.
5
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIf you think Hathaway and Gyllenhaal are worth watching in anything, try Love and Other Drugs. It puts that theory to the test.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile the sex scenes and nudity might help some men facing ED issues, they don't provide enough of a remedy for the usual rom-com blues.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's a pleasure to see Hollywood produce a romance this refreshingly adult, but Love and Other Drugs struggles to find a balance between its disparate plot elements.
