DOWN WITH LOVE (article first published : 2005-05-20)

Directed by Peyton Reed, Down With Love is an affectionate tribute to the romantic comedies of the ‘60s, starring two of today’s hottest stars as writers who reluctantly fall in love.

Featuring Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor with David Hyde Pierce, Sarah Paulson and Tony Randall, Down With Love premieres on the M-Net channel on May 23.

Take a trip down memory lane with this witty spoof/tribute to the sex farces of the ‘50s and ‘60s, when stars like Doris Day and Cary Grant ruled the silver screen.

Set in New York in 1962, the story revolves around Barbara, a writer who has published a feminist book, Down With Love, in which she advocates that women be independent, have lots of casual sex and eat plenty of chocolate.

The book becomes a best seller, and changes women’s attitudes around the world. A reporter, Catcher, is sent to interview her but instead of telling her who he is, he poses as a shy astronaut. He then sets out to prove her a fraud by making her fall in love with him. But Barbara - and Cupid - have some surprises in store for our conniving reporter!
