| Sex, Parkinson, Love and Drugs
In 1996, the womanizer salesman Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal) loses his job in an electronic store after shagging her coworker. Jamie is hired by Pfizer to sell Zoloft with his colleague Bruce Winston (Oliver Platt) and he uses his charm to seduce the receptionists and reach the doctors to convince them to prescribe Pfizer's drugs.

When he meets the twenty-six year-old Maggie Murdock (Anne Hathaway), they have sex on the first date. Maggie is a free spirit that has stage one Parkinson's disease and does not want to have a steady relationship. However, after a period, they both have a feeling that they have never felt before: love. But Jamie is promoted and need to move to Chicago and Maggie is afraid of her degenerative disease.

"Sex & Other Drugs" is a pleasant romance where the former Disney movies' actress Anne Hathaway shines with a bold role of a young woman that loves sex having to deal with Parkinson disease. Her character is very hot and her love scenes have a high level of eroticism. The bitter criticism to the pharmaceutical industry and corrupted doctors is unusual in American films.

Jake Gyllenhaal is a good actor in action films but he has a wooden performance in the role of a wolf that uses his appeal to be an efficient salesman. Josh Gad is annoying and his inconvenient character is never funny. Oliver Platt has a minor participation. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Amor e Outras Drogas" ("Love and Other Drugs")
