America's Greatest Viagra-Themed Love Story is IN THEATERS NOW!

(In the U.S. only; other countries may have to wait upwards of nine weeks, if a release date has been set at all.  SORRY SUCKERS.)

Well, we made it!  And what a ride it has been.  It may not seem like it, but our little community here has had quite a few ups and downs as we waited for Love & Other Drugs to reach our local cineplexes.  Why it seems merely yesterday that we were all on edge with the lack of movie promotion and also because of that idiot on Twitter who said Jake was dead...

"Jake Gyllenhaal has had such a busy week this week, what with dying and then coming back to life and all.  He's like Jesus, except less hairy...no...wait...he's exactly like Jesus."

... but it wasn't yesterday, it was August, and much as America turned to the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show to cheer them after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, we at ISJ turned to Entertainment Tonight's "First Look" segment to remind ourselves that Jake was not only alive, but frequently naked in his upcoming movie.  And no sooner had ET calmed our fears, but we finally had a trailer (!).  Remember that, chums?  How excited we were?  Because along with the trailer came more Jake porn than a fan could know what to do with...

Your blankie porn:



Your sad Jake porn:



Your comedic hand gesture porn:



Your sans serif porn:



...etc, ad nauseum...

We were all on a high as August boldly marched forward.  The screencaps kept coming, and before we even had time to catch our breath, we had a second trailer, bigger and better than the original, in which we learned a lot more about Jake's skills as a comedian...

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.

By September we'd worked ourselves into a frenzy.  We saw what the poster looked like, and then we saw what some intrepid Photoshopper thought the poster should look like.  It seemed like nothing could dampen our enthusisam.  That is until we realized that our enthusiasm was not being echoed by those in charge.  Enter the Official Love & Other Drugs Facebook page...

"Dear Love and (&) Other Drugs Facebook page,

Why do you suck so much?  Why is ET Canada scooping you?  Why did you not even name your page with the actual name of the movie?



Why have you linked to Perez Hilton and no one else?  (Perez Hilton is terrible and so is the post you linked to.)"

...and thus our troubles began.  I blithely agreed that we should have our OWN Love & Other Drugs Facebook page, a page which would later disillusion all of us at a time when I was experiencing several major life upheavals, the net sum of which made me realize that I needed to be honest with you and admit that I just didn't really care as much anymore... :-/

It was such a sad and anticlimactic end to our joyful summer (well, you were joyful...and I faked it well).  Which is why, dear friends, I am determined that our Love & Other Drugs experience not end on that note.  

Because of travel restrictions, I probably won't be able to see it until next week regardless.  But YOU should see it before then!  And talk about it amongst yourselves!  And then I will come back and offer an overly-serious analysis of it, as is my wont.

To everyone who is seeing it today:  HAVE FUN!!!  And to everyone else, particularly those who have to wait anywhere from days to months, er, sorry, and we'll try to label our spoilers, 'kay?!

With this post, I hope to remind everyone that we may be a small, strange community that frequently veers off-topic and is, for good reason, ignored by most Jake fans.  But most of us are here because at one time or another (or maybe even still!) we thought Jake Gyllenhaal was the best reason God ever gave us to pay $10 to sit in the dark with a bunch of strangers.  
So Happy Jake-Has-A-Movie-Out-Today Day, goddammit! 

And Happy Thanksgiving to anyone whom that may apply to!  I'll be back, stalkers...

Great post. I hope that everyone will enjoy watching Love And Other Drugs.

Here in Brazil only on April 21. Of course I will not wait until that date to see the movie.

Four hours! Four hours! Yeay!!

Great blog today, PG! Very ... summarizational! As you can tell, I'm just a tad excited! This is the first day of my L&OD Weekend! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Vanessa November 24, 2010 at 7:41 AM  

Whoo-hoo!!! Happy Jake-Has-A-Movie-Out-Today Day to you too, PG! What an excellent send off post for you! I could't stop smiling really big while reading it & laughing out loud as well. This HAS been a crazy & wild ride for me since I discovered ISJ several months ago. I can't believe there was life before ISJ now. How weird that feels to me. ^_^

& on another note, I am really truly sorry Monica, that they changed the release date on you like that, what a cruel & unjust thing to do to a Jake stalker! But like you said, you will see it way before then anyway, (thank goodness for the internet!)

& ending my long comment on that, have a wonderful Thanksgiving & holiday weekend PG! & ditto to all you stalkers out there, & to those of you that don't do Turkey Day, have a great weekend too! >;-)

Vanessa November 24, 2010 at 8:59 AM  

Whoo-hoo! Thanks to Monica, there are new better & cuter pics of Jake from the Esquire UK December issue posted on ISJ forum here > ISJ Forum - Jake articles & interviews Scroll down to reply # 154 & 156.

Just watched his interview on CBS - The Early Show, he was great! Didn't look sick at all like was speculated about yesterday around the net. I am so glad that he didn't really get sick during his movie release as well as Turkey Day week. ^_^

gyllenhaalisgr8 November 24, 2010 at 9:10 AM  

Yes, Vanessa, Jake is probably brining his turkey as we speak! Don't want a sick cook! Everyone enjoy your holiday in your own way! After my Jake Cake today, I will be baking pumpkin pies to take to my son's tomorrow! YUM!

Vanessa November 24, 2010 at 9:48 AM  

gyllenhaalisgr, you're making my mouth water! Pumpkin pie is my favorite! Can't wait for a piece of that tomorrow... yummm.

I just posted on ISJ Forum Jake's account of his Turkey Day family tradition, he is too funny, check it out - ISJ Forum - Jake interviews & videos - scroll down to reply # 157 Not surprised about what he says though when it involves Stevie! >;-P

Vanessa November 24, 2010 at 12:11 PM  

& before I fly out the door to go see LAOD, here's one more, I posted Jake's interview on CBS The Early Show this morning on the ISJ forum, so check it out when you get a chance here > ISJ Forum - Jake interviews & videos Scroll down to reply # 158.

Uh, excuse me Becky, but Jake was at one point the greatest gift to us for $7.50. Geez.

And Sans Serf Jake Porn is still my favorite porn. Who cares about the person BEHIND the name? Please. Look at how sexy that name is, that BOLD capital J, exuding confidence, assurance, the "k" complimenting the subtle, under appreciated "a". That powerful "G", thrown off kilter by that kooky "y". And the tradition of those double "a"s and "l"s. Be still my beating heart!!

(and I hope my sarcasm is translated correctly here...although, sadly, sans serf Jake really IS my favorite porn)

I am going to go see this today. I have high expectations. I hope I am not disappointed.

AND HOLY - I've been up since 7 doing Thanksgiving stuff...writing shopping lists, checking ingredients, cleaning. KGHSJGHDS.

I hope all at ISJ have a happy one!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

you forgot to mention that in the midst of all this Jake porn we heard a SOURCE CODE cometh. Just incase the clammer for LAOD dies down and we need something else to make the rollercoaster go up again

Vanessa November 24, 2010 at 9:12 PM  

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, sweetpea. I finally got to see LAOD earlier & was blown away. I started a thread for discussing the movie with possible spoilers on the ISJ forum. So, anyone that has seen it & wants to discuss it, come on over. Even if you haven't seen it, feel free to jump on in, just remember that thread is not spoiler free. LOVED THIS MOVIE!!! & will be going to see it again this weekend. >;-)

Monica November 25, 2010 at 3:17 PM  

Happy Thanksgiving!

PG, thanks for the mention in previous post. It's always a pleasure to come to this place and also go to your forum. Jake has wonderful fans.

I guess I have not said this to you, I follow your writing for a long time reading what you write on myspace. I love reading what you write.

Prophecy Girl November 28, 2010 at 4:03 PM  

Wow, thank you, Monica! :)

So...I'M BACK! And I just looked up the box office take for the weekend and...WHAT THE HELL?!???!

I need to unpack and regroup, but a) I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend (and Thanksgiving!!!), and b) I need to see this damned movie so I can sort out what's going on here. To repeat myself all over again from this very post...I'll be back!
