“Used to be you get naked, you get nominated...” sighed Oscar host Anne Hathaway, referring to Ed Zwick’s earnest flesh-flasher.
At first glance, this slick romcom has everything Oscar loves: corporate drug-pusher Jake Gyllenhaal bares his soul (and more) to Hathaway’s pill-popping Parkinson’s sufferer in an issues-based drama where love conquers all.
On repeat viewing, however, the copious nudity distracts from a schizophrenic tone that pings from sex comedy to weepie in the blink of an eye, while the ending will either have you reaching for the Kleenex or a bucket.
Extras are short and thesp-y.
