About the Movie
Barbara Novak (Renee Zellweger) hits New York City with her new book Down With Love, a feminist manifesto on saying "no" to love and "yes" to career, empowerment...and sex. As Barbara's revolutionary tome rockets to the top of best-seller charts, she becomes the target of ace journalist Catcher "Catch" Block (Ewan McGregor), ladies' man/man's man/man-about-town, who is determined to take her down. While Catch's best friend and boss, the neurotic Peter MacMannus (David Hyde Pierce), tries to rein in his star writer, he haplessly pursues the object of his own affections; Vikki Hiller, Barbara’s brilliant and feisty editor Vikki plays tough in a man's world just like her protege Barbara...but will they end up unexpectedly in love?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: We want to love it, but like a Rock Hudson rake, we keep finding fault in its allure. We want to hate it, but like Doris Day, we finally can't say no.
Fresh: It's a cute premise, and several co-stars help keep the fun going for a while.
Rotten: This pitch-perfect imitation of a Rock Hudson-Doris Day nonsex comedy features Renee Zellweger, Ewan McGregor and a passel of visual delights. But why should we care?
Fresh: A very smart, very shrewd movie, and the smartest, shrewdest thing about it is the way it masquerades as just a fluffy comedy, a diversion, a trifle.
"up with choclate"
this movie is so cute the clothing says it all in this movie! Rene and Ewan.... its delightful to watch them together,and siging. Its worth renting/buying
cute movie, great wardrobe, and marvelous actors. it's sort of a spin-off on the old Doris Day/Rock Hudson movies. (Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back, Send Me No Flowers). i love it, surely worth the buy.
When this movie fisrt came out on HBO I would watch it like crazy. Every time it came on I would watch it. It got to the point where I knew every word and when everthing would happen. This movie is amazing.
