Down With Love (2003)

Critic Reviews for Down With Love

All Critics (186) | Top Critics (44)

Hilarious spoof on '60s comedies for mature 14+.

Common Sense Media

Director Peyton Reed keeps this fizzy comedy in an alluringly goofy tizzy from start to finish. This is undoubtedly the skillful battle-of-the-sexes laugher Rock Hudson and Doris Day would have made were they able to naughtily quip about bitches and hose.

Full Review… | September 25, 2010

While the movie definitely has tongue lodged firmly in its postmodern cheek, every detail looks and feels authentic.

Full Review… | January 9, 2010

Takes a creative concept and never knows how to handle it with a less than top-notch script and terrible delivery.

Cinema Crazed

Zellweger and McGregor have only their dimpled cuteness to get them through this movie, which you sense, at least from their mugging, that they believe is enough. It isn't.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

... as light, cheap, and ultimately as insubstantial as cotton candy. And yet, it inadvertently strikes some resonant chords.

Audience Reviews for Down With Love

Oh my god Renee was so obnoxious my respect for her plummeted to Nathaniel Rogers levels. The one redeeming quality of this film was Ewan McGregor. He was seriously sexy.
