Down With Love
Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor star in this cute but contrived tribute to the Cary Grant/Doris Day romances of the early 1960s. She plays a pre-feminist author, writer of the pro-career manifesto Down With Love
. He plays a ladies' man journalist determined to take her down (so to speak). Tony Randall (Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?, Pillow Talk
) comes along to lend period authenticity to the pic. Unfortunately, director Peyton Reed (Bring it On
) isn't quite up to the task, eliciting forced performances from his leads and a too-faux atmosphere.
