Red band trailer for LOVE & OTHER DRUGS shows its funny side
The upcoming anticipated release LOVE & OTHER DRUGS just debuted a red band trailer. While it’s not a comedy in the vein of ROAD TRIP or 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, it certainly has a lot of adult humor, at least in the form of penis jokes, thanks to its subject matter. When the main character is a pharmaceutical salesman focusing on Viagra, it’s inevitable!
Watch the trailer after the break for all the dick jokes and curse words you couldn’t see in the original trailer.
After seeing this trailer, the film looks much more like a romantic comedy than I thought going into to it. Here’s the official plot synopsis from Twentieth Century Fox:
“Maggie (Hathaway) is an alluring free spirit who won’t let anyone – or anything – tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with the ladies and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie’s evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love. Based on Jamie Reidy’s memoir Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman.”
The film debuted at AFI Fest this week, check out what fellow Whaler Allison Loring thought of it in her review. It opens wide on November 24.
