Love and Other Drugs is a decent romantic comedy that, despite great performances, struggles to find its own identity. It does take a refreshingly real approach to the genre, however. Ultimately, though, it attempts to juggle too much. This essentially leads the film to be something of a jack of all trades, while a master of none. The biggest problem, I felt, was how Love and Other Drugs just takes itself too seriously. In an attempt to stretch beyond the typical rom-com, the movie attempts to add in satire of the medical industry, commentary on social issues and awareness of living with a disability, all while trying to maintain the love story. In the end, it falls flat on its face due to having too much to juggle.
