Us Rating: ***

Anne Hathaway plays a spunky artist struggling with Parkinson's disease; Jake Gyllenhaal is a slick, fast-talking drug salesman. The pair hookup and try to keep things casual, but both scramble when emotion finally hits. Thanks to witty dialogue, this edgy romantic comedy breezes along, supported by the duo's chemistry.

The film is weakest when it takes farcical turns: In one scene, Gyllenhaal runs for the ER after a bad reaction to (cough cough) Viagra. But overall, it's a satisfying story of two flawed adults navigating a relationship. (20th Century Fox, $30)
