It is the 1990s and Jamie ( Gyllenhaal ) works in an electronics store. He is talking females into buying phones and stereos while flirting with the store owner’s girlfriend. Jamie and the owner’s girlfriend sneak into the back to have sex. While having sex, the girlfriend's cell phone accidentally dials the owner who discovers what they are doing and fires Jamie.

Later that night Jamie is at his parents' house for dinner. His brother Josh brings up Jamie getting fired, and the family criticizes him for dropping out of medical school. Jamie says that Josh is going to help him get set up as a pharmaceutical sales representative.

Jamie goes to work for Pfizer and tries to get doctors to prescribe Zoloft and Zithromax. He is rebuffed constantly much to the dismay of his partner Bruce ( Platt ) who sees Jamie as his ticket to the "big leagues" of Chicago. Bruce tells Jamie if he can get Dr. Knight ( Azaria ) to prescribe Zoloft instead of Prozac, all the other doctors will follow his lead. After trying to chat Knight up several times, Jamie flirts with his receptionists and sneaks into the back to steal all of the Prozac samples and throw them in the dumpster.

Jamie is still unable to raise his sales so he pays Knight $1,000 to let him shadow him. The doctor accepts and Jamie spends the day talking about how Zoloft is better than Prozac.

Knight goes to see a patient and tells Jamie to say he is an intern. Knight’s patient is Maggie ( Hathaway ), an early onset Parkinson's patient. Someone broke into her house and stole all her drugs, and she gives the doctor a long list of refills she needs. Knight also looks at a lump on her breast, which turns out to be a spider bite.

Later in the parking lot, Maggie stops Jamie while he is throwing away Prozac and punches him in the face for pretending to be an intern and for looking at her breast.

Jamie calls Knight’s receptionist and gets Maggie’s number. He calls Maggie and, they meet. After 10 minutes, they head back to her place and have sex.

Later Jamie is again throwing away Prozac and he gets punched in the face by Trey ( Macht ), the Prozac rep. Trey is the top seller in the region and gives the doctors and staff big kickbacks for pushing Prozac. He says he knows what Jamie is doing, and he will take him down if he doesn’t stop. Trey and Jamie fight some more and he leaves Jamie on the ground after telling him to stay away from Maggie. Jamie then gets take out food and goes to see Maggie.

After briefly discussing Trey, who was seeing Maggie, they start to have sex but Jamie is unable to get an erection. Maggie teases him that he should use the new erection drug that his company has developed. Jamie approaches Bruce about the new drug, and Bruce says he will look into it. Jamie gets the green light to sell Viagra and suddenly he is extremely popular with the doctors.

Jamie tries to convince Maggie to have a relationship with him, but she refuses. The next day, Maggie is helping senior citizens onto a bus to go to Canada to get cheap prescription drugs when Jamie shows up. They argue about their relationship and she leaves. Jamie waits in the parking lot, and the next day when the bus comes back, Maggie is touched that he waited. She tells him she will have a relationship with him.

One night Jamie comes home and starts to have sex with Maggie when he starts to hyperventilate and tells her that he loves her and that she is the first person he has ever told that to.

A few days later Jamie refuses to go to a conference in Chicago because he does not want to leave Maggie. Jamie comes home to find Maggie drunk. Earlier in the day she realized that she ran out of drugs and couldn’t get to the pharmacy in time to get a refill. They have a fight and Jamie leaves. Maggie starts to cry. Jamie comes back and they make up.

Jamie asks Maggie to go the conference with him. She accepts and while at the conference is invited to a Parkinson's convention across the street. She is moved by the people and their stories. She asks Jamie to come over and join her and he meets a man whose wife is in the final stages of the disease. Jamie asks for advice and the man tells him to run. This shakes Jamie. After the convention, Maggie tells him how much she loves him.

Jamie then starts researching Parkinson's and pushing Knight for information on specialists. He starts taking Maggie to a specialist and paying for her to have tests done. At one office Jamie becomes upset because their appointment was rescheduled after they had flown in to see the doctor. While Jamie is yelling at the receptionist, Maggie walks out. They fight and Maggie says there is no cure. Maggie breaks up with him.

Some time later, Jamie goes to meet Bruce for dinner and runs into Maggie who is on a date. After some awkward conversation, Bruce shows up and says that Jamie has been promoted to the Chicago office. Maggie congratulates him and hurries off. Jamie goes home and starts to pack but realizes that he wants to be with Maggie and goes to the diner where she works. Her boss tells him that she has left for Canada to obtain drugs and Jamie goes off after her. Jamie flags down the bus Maggie is on. Maggie gets off and says that Jamie has five minutes to talk. He tells Maggie about how she makes him a better person, that he loves her and needs her. She starts to cry and says that she will need him more. He says that’s okay and she says she can’t ask that of him. He says “you didn’t” and tells her that even if in some alternate reality there was a healthy version of both of them with no worries or problems, he would still choose their reality and problems. They hug and kiss and the movie cuts to a montage showing Maggie and Jamie living together and Jamie studying for medical school. The movie ends with a video of Jamie talking about living everyday to the fullest, how money isn't everything, and you should follow your dreams.
