Love and Other Drugs: Jake's Idea of Comedy

(In case you didn't see the last post, this is a NEW TRAILER.)

WHY are we all so excited about Love and Other Drugs?  The sex?  The Viagra?  The Jake Gyllenhaal/Anne Hathaway on-screen make-out sessions in which both of their characters are straight?

NO.  We're excited for the comedy.  Because that's not something we Jake fans get all that often, and to see Jake in a role where he's hamming it up is VERY EXCITING.

Vanessa has hooked us up with more high-resolution screencaps (click them, save them, lick your computer screen) than I even know what to do with, except I did know what to do with them, which was to go through and carefully analyze Jake's talent as a comedic actor.

What can we expect from Jake in Love and Other Drugs?


Scowling make-out sessions:

Doing a little more than making out in the middle of all that scowling:

Not scowling, but still looking a little serious for doing more than making out:

Scowling while dancing:

Looking distressed while hitting on Anne Hathaway:

Looking distressed while telling Anne Hathaway he loves her:

Looking distressed while finding out that Anne Hathaway has Parkinson's disease right after he freaking told her that he loves her (no take-backs!):

Scowling at Anne Hathaway:

More scowling at Anne Hathaway:

Scowling while talking on the phone:

Scowling while at the office:

And this picture, in which he just looks like he's going to reach into the mouth of whomever he's speaking to and rip out their spine:

And that is what Jake thinks comedy is after all of these years of playing characters who are mentally disturbed and/or depressed and/or have a 50% chance of dying before the end of the movie. 

He'll get better, I'm sure.  He just needs to do it a few more times...

Um, obviously Vanessa should just take up residence in the small font at the bottom of each post.

Whoo-hoo, 3rd post of the day, you are too good to us, PG!!!

Love the label on this one too. hahahah, "Angry Jake" & he sure DOES scowl in all those, doesn't he?

Well, as you can see, I am still not working, so I really must take my leave & try to keep from constantly peering at all these Jake goodies. Oh & that last one, yup, you got that pegged dead on, woman. ^_^

I have to say, his scowl IS pretty funny. Maybe he has a better idea what comedy is than most of us!

Oooh, girl, the second trailer looks so good. I think I'm going to fall in love with Anne Hathaway ALL over again.

Jake too.

Cmon, it would be a Jake film without a little scowling... comedy or not!!!

Ummm... I love him, and his scowl!

Is there such a thing as Gyllenhaalics Anonymous?

A 12 step plan maybe?



Becky Heineke August 17, 2010 at 10:05 AM  

^^^ You mean you'd want to be cured??! :D

Alright, we didn't even get to revel in this because he showed up on that goddamned motorcycle yesterday and there's already another post. He's sure making up for lost time right now! :)

Vanessa August 17, 2010 at 10:18 AM  

Well, I for one, do NOT want to be cured EVER! No 12 step program for this Gyllenhaalic, thank you.

Now moving on to the new post, wow, PG, you are ON TOP of things, woman!
