Down with Love (2003)

I'm unfamiliar with the Doris Day-Rock Hudson comedies from which this film derives its inspiration, but this here's pretty enjoyable anyway. Zellwegger and McGregor are both fantastic, and Peyton Reed's confident direction only makes them look even better (though David Hyde Pierce keeps threatening to hijack the film away from both of 'em). The stylized art direction is beyond reproach, and there's some surprising thematic similarities to Intolerable Cruelty. In short, it's a giddy pleasure from start to finish.

Grade: A-
