a desperate wish to return to a world before Vietnam, Internet pornography and 9/11

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

As it is, 'Down With Love' seems forced, with the principals looking like youngsters dressing up and over-acting to impersonate grown-ups.

Bright and very funny... manages to recreate a filmmaking style that was practically a parody of itself in the first place.

All artifice, so little art. Does this film have anything new to offer? If not, why bother?

Como esforço saudosista em recriar as ingênuas comédias românticas dos anos 60, o filme é bem-sucedido - mas não se destaca muito em seus outros aspectos.
| Original Score: 3/5

[I]f someone tries to sell you a bootleg copy of Down With Love, there's no need to call the police. You may, however, wish to notify the bomb squad.

En algún momento, los guionistas Eve Ahlert y Dennis Drake se olvidan que más que un ejercicio de estilo Abajo el amor es una comedia que debería divertir. Y más aún, es una historia que debería entretener.

It works so hard at being so silly that silly seems smart, making Down With Love simply lovely.

My only complaint? 'Down with Love' should have been a musical.

The ensemble's comedic timing is impeccable.

If you're looking for some 21st century screwball comedy drenched in campy attitude and gaudy duds, you're pretty much primed for the inane but spirited excesses of Down With Love.

Like the old films it mimics, Down With Love plays with sexual double entendres but never, ever shows any hints of actual sex.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Beneath the wingtips, pointy shoes and '50s sexual politics...Down with Love is light, airy and fun - almost to the level of cheap laughs. It's all surface spit and polish.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Down with Love is animated and diverting...[but] nonetheless, there's the sense that no one quite believes in what they're doing.
